Kate Bush

  • Critics choice

Yes indeed: that's Kate Bush, performing live. Echoing Bowie's sudden unretirement last year, the woman who brought you 'Wuthering Heights', 'Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)', 'Cloudbusting', 'Hounds of Love', 'Experiment IV' and more surreally classic songs will be playing her first live shows in 35 years in London later this year. The gigs are titled 'Before the Dawn', and we don't know much about them – although the fact that Ms Bush is wearing a lifejacket in the

Iggy Azalea

  • Critics choice

Hyped and rising ghetto-electro rapper Iggy Azalea brings her risqué rhymes to London, backed by dirty beats and pop hooks. Her debut album 'The New Classic' and a series of high-energy hit singles have won her plenty of support over here, so this relatively small date should sell out in a flash.

The Vamps

Fresh off a stint opening for Taylor Swift, the baby-faced teen-pop band jam out their impish, devil-may-care party jams with boyish charm. Brace yourself for the dizzying spectacle of thousands of overexcited teenagers screaming their heads off.
