More details on each of the events:
- Event: Metallica
- Date: Sat 6 July 2019
- Venue: Olympiastadion
One of two massive concerts taking place in the Olympiastadion (more on the second later), Metallica touch down in Berlin as part of their Worldwired Tour that has already seen them play to millions in Portugal, Ireland, France and the UK.
It is guaranteed to be one of the loudest nights of the year for certain, with rock lovers of all ages descending into the stadium to turn things up to 11.
Our recommendation, of course, would be to make sure you have some earplugs with you just to stop yourself from waking up with ringing ears the next morning.
- Event: Christina Aguilera
- Date: Thu 11 July 2019
- Venue: Mercedes-Benz Arena
Pop royalty comes to the Mercedes-Benz Arena this month as Christina Aguilera plays her first show in Berlin for a few years. She’s come a long way from singing Genie in a Bottle, and if you’ve never been to one of her shows, you’ll be surprised with how many of her old songs you actually remember.
Don’t forget that we’re only two stops away from Berlin Warschauer Straße station, the closest stop to the arena.
- Event: Pink
- Date: Sun 14 July 2019
- Venue: Olympiastadion
It is incredible to think Pink has been a pop star for two decades now, and with her having a concert at the Olympiastadion that is almost guaranteed to sell out, it’s easy to argue she’s one of the world’s biggest pop stars.
She has a devoted following and her shows turn in to one big karaoke session as she runs through all her greatest hits.
- Event: Janelle Monae
- Date: Sun 7 July 2019
- Venue: Zitadelle
Expect tastemakers and fans of funky pop to take over the Zitadelle when Janelle Monae is in town. One of two shows she’s doing in Germany as part of a European tour, and coming fresh off her third album Dirty Computer, if you’re a fan of artists like Prince and Alicia Keys, this a can’t miss event.
- Event: Foreigner
- Date: Mon 15 July 2019
- Venue: Zitadelle Spandau
We’ve all belted out their power ballads at the top of our lungs during karaoke or in the shower, and now is your chance to do it live when Foreigner come to Berlin.
Expect this show to be chock a block with classics like Cold As Ice and Juke Box Hero and plenty of classic rock lovers.
- Event: Security of Things World Conference
- Date: Sun 30 June- Tue 2 July 2019
- Venue: H4 Alexanderplatz
