It’s almost definitely drizzling and chilly right now so what better way to keep warm than by seeking out a sweaty room full of adrenaline-pumped music fans? Here’s our guide to the best London gigs happening this November.

Music, Pop

Marina

icon-location-pin Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, Hammersmith
icon-calendar

The artist formerly known as Marina and the Diamonds tours in support of this year’s acclaimed ‘Love + Fear’ album, but expect to hear older favourites such as ‘Hollywood’ and ‘I Am Not a Robot’, too.

Music, Pop

Shakespears Sister

icon-location-pin London Palladium, Soho
icon-calendar

Who saw this reunion coming? After splitting pretty bitterly in 1993, American singer Marcella Detroit and OG Bananarama member Siobhan Fahey have brought back Shakespears Sister as a duo, and they’re hitting the road this autumn. Expect goth-pop signature hit to ‘Stay’ to raise the Palladium to the rafters (and very possibly raise the dead).

Music, Pop

Christina Aguilera

icon-location-pin Wembley Arena, Wembley
icon-calendar

It’s about time for her arrival... these Wembley Arena dates are the pop queen’s first London headline shows in 12 years. Expect a banger-packed setlist that veers from ‘Dirrty’ to ‘Beautiful’ with plenty of ‘Liberation’ in between.

Music, Rap, hip hop and R&B

Lizzo

icon-location-pin O2 Academy Brixton, Brixton
icon-calendar

After smashing Glastonbury, this year’s breakout star brings her high-kicking, butt-shaking, flute-playing, emotions-galvanising ‘Juice’ to London for her biggest headline shows yet. Slé.

Zedd

This one’s big – the DJ-producer behind huge hits including ‘Clarity’, ‘The Middle’ and ‘Stay the Night’ is headlining Canada Water superclub Printworks, with Jax Jones and NOTD on support duties. 

Music, Rock and indie

Vampire Weekend

icon-location-pin Alexandra Palace, Alexandra Palace
icon-calendar

New York’s indie kings dropped their first album in six years, ‘Father of the Bride’, in May. Now they’re embarking on an autumn UK tour including this 10,000 capacity show at Ally Pally. It should be a crowd-pleaser for A-Punks, non-punks and many folks in between.

Sleaford Mods

icon-location-pin Eventim Apollo Hammersmith, Hammersmith
icon-calendar

The scabrous electro-punks are playing the biggest London gig of their career, so expect their righteous energy to be even more next-level than normal.

icon-calendar

South London's confessional hip hop king heads north of the river to perform tracks from his acclaimed albums ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ and ‘Not Waving, but Drowning’. It’s his biggest headline gig to date, so should have a proper celebratory vibe.
