Nick Minaj tops FOMO poll
Nick Minaj's concerts were the most talked about gigs in the UK this month.
The 'Anaconda' hitmaker, who kicked off her 'The Pinkprint' tour in London's O2 Arena last weekend, has topped a new FOMO [Fear of Missing Out] FTSE poll with more people eager to watch her take to the stage than Sting.
The 32-year-old singer came out on top after online ticket marketplace StubHub used Twitter hashtags to rank the hype surrounding upcoming gigs and concerts in the UK throughout April.
Sting, who released his new album, 'Taking Pictures,' earlier this week and is due to kick of his comeback tour next week, came in second place, while 'All About That Base' hitmaker Meghan Trainor came in third ahead of the start of her new tour in Glasgow next Wednesday (08.04.15).
Other artists in the top 10 include former 'X Factor' star Olly Murs, BRITs Critics' Choice winner James Bay, and Welsh rockers Catfish and The Bottlemen.
Commenting on the results, Brigitte Ricou-Bellan, Stubhub's General Manager International said: "As we launch the Stubhub FOMO FTSE, it's interesting to see upcoming artists such as Meghan Trainor and British singer-songwriter James Bay already high up the list of the most talked about artists on Twitter.
"From FOMO to JOMO (the Joy of Missing Out), StubHub's fan-focussed service offers people the chance to buy or resell tickets via a safe and secure online marketplace. Plus, the price fans see upfront is the price they pay - no hidden charges."
