Madonna may have been a possibility if we were in the mid 80s, but she's hardly top draw these days. I still think it has to be either Adele or Taylor Swift, because they at least already knew Dave and the band, Dave has spoken highly of them.

If I google "biggest pop star in the world", then it is Calvin Harris.

Apparently he is 1.97m tall


According to Twitter music, it's Katy Perry based on followers.

I reckon it's Taylor Swift though. Or Florence Welch? Not the biggest, but there is history...

1) Well, the biggest popstar is Beyonce, right?
2) But knowing how Dave loves exaggeration, and given their RnR performance, maybe Lorde
3) I'm gonna throw Sia back there again because I can hear her loud shrieking screams in a rock song.

Everybody who is at the listening has the same type of reaction. This makes me unbelievably excited for Sept. 15.

Attendants at the playback got lyric booklets - it's plausible the lyrics could leak before we hear the music.

He definitely didn't specify a gender.

I'm just gonna rule out Sia because I don't think anyone in America knows who the fuck that is (also, it's not Sia)

When the Foos played our Mt Smart stadium in 2015 they got close to filling it (50k). Ed Sheeran, Sia And Paul McCartney are all going to play there and they will probably do OK too.

Adele NZ March 2017 - not close to filling the stadium, no she sells it out THREE times over. Australia was the same kind of deal. And forgetting touring, 25 was at at the top of every sales list for 2016.

So unless the "biggest" statement has somehow been influenced by Dave's personal opinion or historical reference rather than current, then there is simply nothing to guess. Adele is SO far ahead of everyone else its not funny.

But IF it was historical - and NOT Adele, then it would almost have to be Katy Perry. Social media ranking aside she is the only living artist in history to have five number one singles from one album.

I hope it isn't Harry Styles then. Didn't the foos and Ed Sheeran almost perform together or something awhile back but it never came off?

Are you thinking The Brits? Sheeran had talked about a guest joining him onstage and because Dave turned up unannounced people just assumed incorrectly on social media that's who it was going to be.

Yeah, might be. Still could be Ed Sheeran though if no gender has been specified.
