It’s the most wonderful time of the year as far as we Danes are concerned; a time when we love to celebrate with our families and raise a Carlsberg to the year gone by. Lucky children have presents delivered by Julemanden – the Danish Santa Claus – who arrives on his sleigh helped by mischievous elves known as nisse. But there’s no need to wait for the big man for present inspiration this year. Go Danish and decide to spend quality time with those you love in 2018. Choose the right O2 Academy concert tickets and give them a live experience they’ll never forget instead of something they’ll shove in a drawer. Here’s our guide to what to buy...

Britpop Loving Fortysomethings – They worship Noel Gallagher, love a classic guitar riff and like epic choruses that take them right back to the Britpop glory days of the 90’s. Make their day and get them tickets for Embrace’s new tour at the O2 Academy as the band celebrate their forthcoming seventh album ‘Love Is A Basic Need’.

The Millenial In Your Life – Expect serious brownie points when you present a pair of tickets to see Mo Gilligan, the hottest comedian of the moment and one of the UK’s fastest rising social media stars. With his fans including Drake, Stormzy and Tinie Tempah, they’ll certainly be in good company.

Tricky Teenagers – Get them something worth bragging about with tickets to see the amazing Rita Ora at a local O2 Academy. Super hip, staggeringly well connected and unfeasibly talented, she is bound to deliver a show worth talking about.

The Fashionista In The Family – Treat them to an evening of sleek soul and sophisticated pop with the achingly stylish Jessie Ware, who released her latest album ‘Glasshouse’ in October.

The Person Who Has Everything – What else but tickets to Manchester art-pop heroes Everything Everything? Last year’s Top 5 album ‘A Fever Dream’ proved they are one of Britain’s compelling bands with critics raving about their live shows.
