Today has to be unprecedented: thirty four acts going on sale, with one hundred and fifty events - it's not so much a Fat Friday, as a morbidly obese one!

Anyway, as a result, we're not going to be able to fit it all on one page, so you'll have to check the artist links either within this article, to the sidebar (on the right), or just above the event listings, below.

Michael Buble
