This week, there are plenty of great Christmas gift-ideas amongst your choice of new on-sale tickets. You can't miss out on Pearl Jam's only UK headliner (so far), nor Will Young's outdoor shows next summer. The Horrors, Drake and funnyman Jerry Seinfeld are expected to sell well, but possibly not as quick as Sinead O'Connor's first tour in 5 years.
Tickets on-sale Friday at 9am unless otherwise stated. For ticket availability, click on the "Buy Tickets" buttons below, on or after the on-sale date and time. Prices quoted are not inclusive of booking fees.
To coincide with its success, Drake will take new album "Take Care" on the road in the spring, with arena shows in Dublin (24th March), London, Sheffield, Cardiff etc until returning later in April for stints in Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle and Nottingham, priced from £35 upwards.
For her first UK tour in around five years (although she recently played a show as part of the Mencap Little Noise Sessions), O'Connor hits the road during March. Stops (so far) include Bristol and Manchester, both priced at £25. She is also appearing in Dublin this Sunday (19th).
2012 will see the ex-Joy Division/ New Order bassist and The Light bring one of two JD albums to various cities during late spring, starting with a string of Unknown Pleasures shows in Liverpool, Glasgow, Nottingham, Sheffield, Birmingham and Oxford and a Closer show at the Islington Academy - priced at £20 upwards.
2012 sees Kane hit the road with new material starting with Nottingham on 20th April, followed by Glasgow, Dundee, Inverness then south to Leeds, Manchester, Bristol and finally the Forum in Kentish Town. Tickets for all shows will be in high demand and will weigh in at £15 for all shows.
This UK jaunt kicks off in Bristol on 12th, followed by the usual big cities, including rare shows in Norwich and Brighton, before landing fully-primed for a show at the Electric Ballroom in London on 20th. Support for the tour comes from US prog-metallers Animals as Leaders who will remain in the UK for their own May tour. £15 (£17.50 for London).
Alt-rock supergroup Angels & Airwaves are to visit the UK next spring, with the kicking off in Nottingham on 9th April, followed by dates in Glasgow, Manchester (The Ritz), Leeds and Birmingham, before the final gig of the run at the Shepherds Bush Empire in London on Saturday 14th April.
If you relish the chance of rocking out to some seriously iconic '70s music, done with riffs, rather than quiffs, head for Tragedy's tour next year. Tickets for Glasgow, London etc went on sale earlier in the week, although Oxford is on sale from Friday morning.
Also on sale this week are a clutch of UK shows for the legendary Seinfeld in Birmingham, Manchester and Dublin (May - from £40), tours for The Subways (May - £12/£15), Dog Is Dead (Feb - £6.50), MTV Brand New 2012 showcases featuring Emeli Sandé and The Maccabees (plus a March headlining tour of their own) and '80s grebo-kings Pop Will Eat Itself (Mar - £16/£18).
