Lloyd tells us about his event interests:


Q: What types of events do you usually attend?

A: Normally music, comedians and sport events. I must say comedians are my favourite.


Q: What is the best artist/group you have ever seen live?

A: Coldplay at the Principality Stadium was an amazing event. 


Q: Who are your favourite stand-up comedians?

A: I remember going to watch Lee Evans and leaving with a sore jaw I had laughed so much. Also loved watching John Bishop and I really enjoy Jack Whitehall’s humour so looking forward to the next event.


Q: Which sports do you enjoy seeing live? (apart from rugby!)

A: I went to watch basketball in Madison Square Gardens and that was amazing. Always something to cheer about. 


Q: What is your favourite venue?

A: I might be a bit biased but the Principality Stadium Cardiff is an incredible venue having played there and been at many different events. 


Q: What type of theatre events do you usually attend? (e.g. drama, musicals, opera) / Which show is your all-time favorite production? 

A: I’ve been to watch a few musicals including The Lion King with my wife and I must say I’ve loved everyone I’ve been too. 


Q: Who would be your three dream headline acts to perform at a festival?

A: I would love to see Foo Fighters, The Killers and I think I’d really enjoy Stormzy live. Even though I must say I’d go and watch Coldplay again at the drop of a hat.


Q: Are there any events/artists that you would like to see that you haven't yet seen?

A: Would love to attend either Wimbledon or Glastonbury both very different but such iconic events in our country.
