Preview: Conor Maynard at the O2 Academy Bournemouth (02/11/12)


Queue girlish scream of excitement. I’m not going to hide the fact that I am well and truly a Mayniac and proud of it at that! This date has been circled on my calendar since Conor Maynard released his tour dates earlier this year. Excited isn’t quite the adjective. Over the past eighteen months Conor Maynard has gone from under the radar Youtube sensation to credible chart topping wonder kid! With singles such as ‘Vegas Girl’ and his latest one ‘Turn Around’ featuring Ne-Yo gaining top 10 chart positions, he is definitely one to look out for, that’s if he’s not already appearing EVERYWHERE in your life.

So on Friday 2nd November, those of you who have tickets will be heading down to the O2 Academy in Bournemouth for a night of amazing music from the man himself. With album Contrast gaining a UK number one i’m sure he will be rattling through the tracks from that to please the hundreds of screaming girls that are sure to fill the crowd. I’m proud to say I will definitely be one of them. We can look forward to hearing tracks such as ‘Can’t Say No’ and ‘Animal’. Look out for the review of the show coming next week on The Edge.

The Edge have also been privalidged enough to get an exclusive interview with Conor himself so watch this space!
