This week:

All prices are exclusive of booking fees.


Teenage Cancer Trust

Next week sees the start of a week's worth of great fundraising shows at the Royal Albert Hall. Primal Scream, Rizzle Kicks, Paul Weller have the pick of the seats, while Ryan Adams and Russell Brand's nights are down to final spaces. Various prices.

The Black Crowes

In the build-up to their appearance as support to Bruce Springsteen at Hard Rock Calling, Chris Robinson's band will play a short headline tour from next Sunday. Only Birmingham and Glasgow have any spaces left, priced from £33.50 upwards.

Biffy Clyro

Spaces for the Welsh rockers' UK and Ireland tour are running out fast with just seats available for Newcastle, Sheffield, Belfast and London. The Dublin show on 28th March still has standing available but is bound to sell out soon. From £28.50 upwards.

The Gaslight Anthem

Initially, there was a mass dash for tickets when these shows went on sale just prior to Christmas, leaving spaces thin on the ground. Glasgow (25th), both London and Dublin shows have seats left priced from £21.50 upwards.

The Weeknd

All of the soulful rapper and singer's March shows have sold out, from Manchester to the four Camden gigs from 24th - 27th. All of which suggests you should make a grab for his November shows instead - available now from £24.50.

Marti Pellow

Wet Wet Wet's dapper founder and singer is back on the road touring concert halls throughout the spring. Remaining shows across the UK from Salford on Saturday night to Bromley on 8th April are available from around £33.50 upwards.


After several years away, the alt-rock outfit returns for an extensive UK and Ireland tour in support of new material and a few classics. All shows from Leicester on Sunday to Dublin on 6th April have tickets available, priced at £16.50 upwards.

Chapel Club

Before they get stuck into festival-season with slots at Stockton Calling and this year's Dot to Dot tour, Chapel Club have a handful of headliners to play next week. All shows from Saturday's Birmingham visit to Brighton on 27th are available for a tenner or less.

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

From Monday onwards, the Floridian metallers will begin their UK tour starting in Bristol. Other stops include Exeter, Bournemouth, Wolverton, etc. until Camden on 2nd April. In amongst the tour-dates, there's a slot at Liverpool's Radstock Festival. Priced up to £10 (Radstock is £25).

Jägermeister Music Tour 2013

Three bands for £5 seems too good to be true - but it's really happening from Monday onwards when Ghost, Gojira and The Defiled tour the UK. All shows from Sheffield, through Glasgow etc until Brixton on 24th March, are available.

Theatre, Comedy and Arts

New Jersey Nights

If Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons are your bag, head out to see the internationally touring show on its UK tour from next week. Manchester, Brighton, Bromley, Bristol and more will each host a few night's worth of shows, priced from £10 to over £30.

Sleeping Beauty On Ice

Get your skates on - this touring ice spectacular features the classical ballet and fairytale, suitable for the whole family. Sunderland, Salford and Edinburgh are the first few stops on the tour, priced from £15 upwards.

Untold Stories

Fans of Alan Bennett will be flocking to see this autobiographical production which features two recollections from Bennett's memoirs and writings. Runs from Friday until 15th June at the Duchess Theatre, priced from £29.50.
