Ticket Alert: Gigs on Sale Friday 30 September

Here’s our pick of gigs which go on sale this week. You should be able to bag tickets to these from around 9am on Friday.

  • Benjamin Francis Leftwich is an introverted singer-songwriter with a guitar and a critical reception that suggests he’s more than another James Blunt. His debut album came out in July – see him at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 22 February.
  • Bloc Party are apparently hunting for a new lead singer, which should give Kele Okereke even more time to concentrate on his solo career. Find out how he’s getting along at Electric Brixton on 17 December.
  • Charting the band’s evolution through its first three albums, The Cure’s ‘Reflections’ show is a two-and-a-half hour affair split into four sets. They’ll perform it at the Royal Albert Hall on 15 November.
  • There’s something of a glut of indie-folk about at the moment, but if you’re not bored of tweeness and banjos yet then check out Fanfarlo. They’re energetic and likable with some sweet hooks – see them at Cargo on 21 November.
  • Sum 41 and New Found Glory are joint headliners of the Kerrang! Relentless tour, which rolls into the Roundhouse on 17 February.

Also booking this week: Dappy at the IndigO2 and Islet at The Lexington.
