This month’s best gigs
Songhoy Blues, John Grant and more great shows this month
Chris Martin and his galaxy-conquering pop-rockers are back, with a new album ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ ready to follow last year’s downbeat ‘Ghost Stories’. Whatever your thoughts on whether you ever want to hear ‘Yellow’ ever again in your entire life (like, ever) Coldplay can always be counted on to put on a spectacular and impressively staged live show. Though it still galls us to say it, this intimate preview gig for the BBC is a must.
