LAS VEGAS, NV - MAY 11: In this handout image provided by The Rolling Stones, Katy Perry performs onstage with Mick Jagger during The Rolling Stones 'Beast of Burden' tour on May 11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Audiences will love this new production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. There are lots of family friendly performance times and special prices for under 16s making it the perfect treat for the whole family at half term.
I’ve had a little time to reflect on the world title but it’s only a few months break and once this year started it was game on again ... I enjoyed it for sure. Nothing was going to wipe the smile off of my face. I just cruised it and didn’t surf for about three weeks. Once the bug came back though I was just pumped. It’s one thing to win your first one, it’s an entirely different beast to defend one. The fact that the performance level on tour has never been higher doesn’t make it any easier.More quotes »
