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.
Gigs and concerts this week
Dapper rapper Future is from Atlanta, and has worked with Pharrell (who hasn’t?), Kanye and loads more big hip hop and R&B names. At this big London show he’ll be dropping tracks from his latest solo album ‘Honest’ (originally called ‘Future Hendrix’, but don’t come expecting any sweet licks) and ‘What a Time to Be Alive’, his new collab album with Drake.
The awesome foursome from north London pump out lashings of reverb-heavy indie-grunge-pop, which has earned them critical acclaim and adoring fans up and down the country. This’ll be their biggest home town show to date and a fitting showcase for their superb debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’.
