Music, Folk, country and blues

Kojey Radical

Roundhouse, Chalk Farm

The rapper and multidisciplinary artist from Hoxton is known for his energetic live shows, jazzy hip hop jams and socially conscious lyrics, so this show at Camden’s iconic Roundhouse venue should be treat for the eyes, ears and heart.

Avril Lavigne

O2 Academy Brixton, Brixton

Dust off those fingerless gloves, because AvLav is playing a trio of Brixton gigs in April. They’re her first UK headline shows since 2011 (!), and her current setlist features all the hits from ‘Complicated’ to ‘Girlfriend’, so you’re bound to have an Av-solutely fabulous time.

Ashnikko

Omeara, Southwark

The punky pop upstart who’s huge on TikTok (ask a teenager) continues her rise with a trio of shows at London Bridge venue Omeara. Definitely one of the hippest tickets of the spring.

Pussycat Dolls

Snoop Dogg

The O2, Greenwich Peninsula

Pour yourself a supersize ‘Gin & Juice’, because the Doggfather is playing live in London for the first time since 2015. The tour celebrates his influence on hip hop and pop culture generally by enlisting some of his key collaborators from over the years: Warren G, Tha Dogg Pound, Obie Trice and D12. Irish hip hop duo Versatile will be joining the support line-up, so it’s an epic night all round.

Music

Harry Styles

The O2, Greenwich Peninsula

Is it too soon to call him the Robbie of 1D? Two shows at one of London’s biggest venues – in support of second solo LP ‘Fine Line’, which is winning positive reviews – suggest Hazza’s very much on the right track.

8
Music, Rap, hip hop and R&B

Craig David

The O2, Greenwich Peninsula

Craig David all over your... O2 Arena. For two nights in a row. Expect the comeback kid to deliver all the hits from ‘Fill Me In’ and ‘Seven Days’ to the more recent, Big Narstie-assisted ‘When The Bassline Drops’.

Celeste

O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, Shepherd’s Bush

This Brighton singer-songwriter is tipped for big things – she’s already won the Brits Rising Star Award, and earned comparisons to the late, great Amy Winehouse. After supporting Michael Kiwanuka on tour in March, she plays her biggest headline show to date at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in April. Catch her now before she goes supernova.

10
Elbow
Music, Rock and indie

Elbow

Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, Hammersmith

Manchester’s anthemic, Mercury Prize-winning four-piece tour in support of their chart-topping 2019 album ‘Giants Of All Sizes’. Their soaring choruses should fill the 5,000 capacity Apollo to its rafters.
