It's a quiet Friday on the new gigs front too. Sir Tom Jones plays Wembley Arena (since no one's now playing the Stadium) on 28th October, piano man Billy Joel does the same on the 10th July, and the aptly named Arena Tour completes our nightmarish trilogy at the Arena on the 5th October where you can find out what the hell happened to Eternal, Boys II Men, Tunde (the voice of Lighthouse Family), Dina Carroll, Mark Morrison and En Vogue. If that's your thing.
Luckily we're saved from a Magic FM meltdown by news of Teenage Fanclub being added to ATP's Don't Look Back bill, playing the sublime Bandwagonesque alll the way through on 24th July at Koko.
So to flesh this post out a little, here are a couple of other shows you might be interested in, simply because we are! Black Mountain play Koko on May 10th, the Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra and Tra-La-La Band play Koko on the 6th June, whilst Graham Coxon's favourites Mission Of Burma return to the UK at Koko on 22nd May supporting Broken Social Scene. And finally legendary funk punks Fishbone are back playing the Garage on the 8th June.
