Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West make up London-based Britpop duo Oh Wonder, coming to Shanghai's Bandai Namco on March 6 as part of their Ultralife World Tour. The self-made pair of alt-pop stars have become international hits since the release of their debut album in September, 2015. The album, simply named Oh Wonder, was the result of a year's work writing, recording and releasing one song a month. Entirely D.I.Y., this year of build-up gave them a chance to play sold-out shows in London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles one week after the record dropped, going on to tour worldwide for the rest of the year. July 2017 saw their second (some say first "proper" album) release. The sound is energetic, beat-driven, bright, joyous, celebratory and guaranteed to improve your week. Tickets available right here

10-time Grammy Award winner, John Legend was born child prodigy in 1978, getting his musical career start with his grandmother teaching him the piano. Legend became an in-demand session musician and songwriter, working with such artists as Alicia Keys, Twista, Kanye West, and Janet Jackson. Legend’s debut album, 2004's Get Lifted, went platinum thanks in part to the hit single “Ordinary People,” a song that he originally penned for the Black Eyed Peas. The album also landed him the Grammy for Best New Artist for that year. In December 2016, Legend released his fifth solo studio album, Darkness and Light, which features collaborations with Miguel and Chance the Rapper. Tickets available right here.
