Tucked cosily away between Oxford Circus and Great Marlborough Street, the London Palladium is one of the city's best-loved theatres. 'The Royal Variety Show', a perennial British favourite, is filmed here, while commercial stage shows from 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' to 'Scrooge' have benefited from a steady flow of popular TV faces. Perhaps the biggest draw, however, was non-celebrity Connie Fisher who reigned supreme in Andrew Lloyd Webber's very public auditions, the BBC talent contest 'How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?' Given that the theatre's quaint Argyll Street home became almost impassable in the evenings during Fisher's stage residence for 'The Sound of Music' (as well as during Whoopi Goldberg's 2009 musical production of 'Sister Act'), it's best to avoid the locale around 7pm.

Show tunes, Pop, Vintage and oldies
The dazzle-toothed singer, dancer, actor, talent show judge and all-round housewives' favourite delivers a rare-ish live performance.
The Bros boss brings his Vegas show 'The Gossy Room' to London, singing ’80s hits, cover versions and Rat Pack-inspired swing standards with a full band and horn section. The ticket price is Vegas-sized too.
The death metal Vikings hammer through their epic, thundering, progressive work-outs for the black-clad faithful, in the incongruously fancy setting of the London Palladium. The first set tonight will consist of their whole 'Ghost Reveries' album, followed...
Pop, Vintage and oldies, Soul
Made up of former painters and decorators, this British harmony group were discovered by a talent scout while singing on their lunch break (although they had previously auditioned for 'The X Factor', which ruins the story a bit). They're nice boys and...
Pop and rock
Long ago they were indie mainstays, but Scottish rockers Texas have long since reinvented themselves as big-league soul-rockers. They went on hiatus in the middle of the last decade, but returned recently with a new album called 'The Conversation'. You'll...
