Superstar DJ David Guetta coming to the Ricoh

Date: 21 Nov 2018


Superstar DJ David Guetta will be wowing the crowd at Ricoh Arena in 2019, as the world-renowned, chart-topping artist prepares to headline the exciting Soundscape Weekender.

On Sunday 16 June, the Grammy-winning DJ producer will be heading to Coventry to perform a fist-pumping 90-minute set at the home of Wasps Rugby.

Guetta will bring the curtain down on the final day of an action-packed two-day outdoor music festival in the stadium bowl, which will feature seven other current chart-topping artists on day two, with the first day celebrating the indie, rock and alternative scene.

The French DJ has sold more than 30 million singles worldwide and has spent 100 weeks in the top ten of the UK official charts with catchy collaborations such as When Love Takes Over with Kelly Rowland, Sexy Chick with Akon, and Club Can’t Handle Me with Flo Rida.

His more recent collaborative hits include Flames with Sia, and Don’t Leave Me Alone with Anne-Marie.

Director at Showtime Live Dan Nelmes, who are organising Soundscape Weekender, said: “As far as chart-topping artists go you don’t get much bigger than David Guetta, so we are absolutely thrilled to be able to have him performing right here in Coventry.

“His songs have captured the imagination of millions of people for nearly two decades now and we believe he will provide a fitting end to what will be a truly memorable music event for our city.

“Efforts have also been made to ensure gig-goers are getting more for their money across both days. If we take Sunday as an example, they will be treated to 90 minutes of David Guetta – which is the equivalent of a standalone concert in itself – plus individual performances from seven other chart-topping artists.

“We’re really proud to be helping Coventry to live up to its potential as a first-class destination for different genres of live music, and we will be announcing all of our acts for the Saturday once we have revealed Sunday’s full line-up.”

Pre-sale tickets for Sunday 16 June will go on sale at 10am on Friday 23 November to those who have registered their interest via www.soundscapeweekender.co.uk  

General sale tickets for Sunday 16 June will go on sale at 10am on Monday 26 November. Details about tickets for Saturday 15 June will be announced at a later date.

Head of Operations at the Ricoh Arena Justine Hewitt added: “Next summer is going to be one to remember for music lovers with the announcement of David Guetta.

“Showtime Live has a great track record of delivering acts that the public want to see having been behind the Stepback 80s, 90s and Sean Paul concerts that we have previously held at the venue, and we can’t wait to see who the other acts are.”

Tickets are priced from as low as £49 per day, and can be purchased by visiting www.soundscapeweekender.co.uk or www.ricoharena.com.
