Coming to you a few days early to give you some advanced warning on a few big shows out this Friday and let you know of a few others hanging around.

First up and already on sale here are the Teenage Cancer Trust shows at the Royal Albert Hall. A stirling line up for all shapes and sizes is available with only the Cure show sold out at the time of typing. They are:

Monday 27 March - An Evening of Sublime Stand up with special guest Ricky Gervais

Tuesday 28 March - Goldfrapp plus very special guests

Wednesday 29 March - Bloc Party with Biffy Clyro and Mystery Jets

Thursday 30 March - Razorlight plus very special guests

Friday 31 March - However our personal favourite has to be the Tommy Vance Tribute Night with Judas Priest, The Scorpions, Ian Gillan & Friends and Boned. Rock on Tommy!

Saturday 1st April - The Cure

The Chilli Peppers are back on Friday 14th, Saturday 15th, Monday 17th, and Tuesday 18 July at Earl's Court. We understand they're taking Sunday off to catch the matinee of The Lion King. Tickets on sale early Friday.

Glam shocked and longer of tooth rockers Twisted Sister are doing the inevitable return to life tour, wanting to rock (!,,!) the Hammersmith Apollo on the 27th June. Considering the last time Londonist saw them at the Hammy O was almost 20 years ago, this is not bad going. Let's see if they ever say THAT about Arctic Minkeys.

Roger Waters' Glastonbury performance a few years ago was a real highlight for a field full of grizzled old stoners, so the news that he's going to do Dark Side Of The Moon in it's entirety at this year's Roskilde festival (June 29 to July 2) sent at least some of the Music Dungeon into near apoplexy.

The Zutons are off to Shepherd's Bush Empire on April 26th in support of their new long player: Tired Of Hanging' Around, and Emo punkers Fall Out Boy play Brixton on May 24th

Finally there are extra dates for the show of the century, Jeff Wayne takes his musical version of War Of The Worlds to Wembley Arena for some extra dates on the 24th and 25th of April. And thankfully not a Cruise in sight.

We also wondered whether anyone's seen this amusing piece on how Pete Doherty is the brainchild of the KLF. If only it were true.
