Featuring Wizkid, The Script, Sigrid, Interpol and more

The big hitters are out in force in the world of live events this week, with afrobeat superstar Wizkid adding an extra date to his tour, The Script hitting arenas for their greatest hits, and Fleetwood Mac alumni gracing us with his presence.

And there's plenty more besides, whether you're after feel-good pop or ear-shattering heavy metal. All of these tickets went on sale today, so grab them before someone else does.


Reigning champ of afrobeat Wizkid has added an extra date at the O2 Arena in London on Monday 29 November. This one was added after his previous show sold out in less than 12 minutes, so we'd be amazed if tickets weren't snapped up fast. Are you yet to discover the sunshine-tinged delights of Wizkid? We recommend you pop on his latest album Made In Lagos and prepare to have your tiny mind blown.

Wizkid will perform at The O2 Arena in London this November. Click here for performance dates and tickets.

The Script

Squeaky clean soft rockers The Script have announced a tour in support of their Greatest Hits album, wittily titled Tales From The Script. Despite the horror-influenced album name, these are gentle, fist-pounding anthems designed for arenas. Comparisons with U2 dog Irish-born The Script, but they can certainly raise the roof like Bono and Co.

The Script will tour the UK and Ireland next spring. Click here for performance dates and tickets.


Sigrid is pop's modern day ball of happiness, and she'll be blasting out elated hit after hit when she plays Manchester, Glasgow and London next March. Although it's yet to be announced, we're expecting Norwegian's biggest popstar to release a second album before her tour of the UK, so expect plenty of new tunes on her already hit-filled set list.

Sigrid will tour the UK in March next year. Click here for performance dates and tickets.

Lindsey Buckingham

Fleetwood Mac's male lead singer and guitarist Lindsey Buckingham will tour the UK next year in support of his self-titled latest album. From 'Holiday Road' to 'It Was I', Buckingham can cherry pick plenty of classics from his solo career, but we imagine he won't be able to resist whipping out a few Fleetwood favourites.

Gloomy NYC rockers Interpol will play a one-off gig at London's Roundhouse on Tuesday 14 June next year. The performance isn't promoting any album in particular, and seems to be a warm-up before they resume touring properly again, so expect plenty of classics from Interpol's back catalogue. Our money's on 'Evil' for the final encore.

Interpol will play the Roundhouse in London on Tuesday 14 June. Click here for tickets.

Horrible Histories Presents Horrible Christmas

The kids show that adults secretly love is putting on a spectacular alternative to panto this winter, with Horrible Histories Presents Horrible Christmas. There'll be plenty of historical gags, a time-travelling twist and most likely a few crude jokes about Santa's giant sack. Frankly, we're all in.

Horrible Histories Presents Horrible Christmas will tour the UK this winter. Click here for performance dates and tickets.

Royal Blood

Royal Blood have added a special homecoming tour date in Brighton this year to cap off their run of intimate venues. Fret not if you can't make it to Brighton – they've got an extra helping of arena shows booked in for next year, too.

Royal Blood will play Brighton on Wednesday 15 September. Click here for tickets.

Sea Power

Sea Power, formerly known as British Sea Power, put on a near transcendent live show, so we're delighted to see them resume touring next spring. While it's easy to mistake their intellectualised lyrics and Bernard Summer-alike vocals for arty posturing, this is danceable indie music through and through.

Sea Power will tour the UK next spring. Click here for performance dates and tickets.

Bjorn Again

With ABBA announcing a glorious return this week, it's only proper that the finest ABBA tribute act on the planet, Bjorn Again, do likewise with a tour this winter. They've got the moves, they've got the tunes and, if you squint a bit, they've got the looks of everyone's favourite Swedish pop sensations.

Bjorn Again will tour the UK this winter. Click here for performance dates and tickets.

Dream Theater

Prog metal legends Dream Theater have announced a three-date arena tour of the UK as they promote their 15th studio album A View from the Top of the World. We've never listened to much Dream Theater ourselves, but we can guarantee that this will be LOUD.

Dream Theater will tour the UK in spring 2022. Click here for performance dates and tickets.
