This summer, the pop icon is touring the UK for the first time in seven years. So if you want a ticket for one of her London shows, you better work that booking system, bitch.

U2

U2

Bono and the boys bring their 'eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour' to the capital for a couple of arena shows. Performed in the round, it's a typically slick mix of rock histronics and state-of-the-art visuals.

Christine And The Queens

Christine and the Queens

One of 2016's break-out stars returns to play tunes from her 'sweatier' second album. Feel free to add to the vibes by doing your face with magic marker beforehand.

Ennio Morricone

Ennio Morricone

This is the last ever UK concert from the legendary Italian composer who's scored over 500 films and TV shows including 'Once Upon a Time in the West' and 'The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly'. He turns 90 a couple of weeks before this show, so there's no faulting his stamina.

The O2. Nov 26.
