Another week, another bunch of new gigs to consider booking up. Here’s our pick – tickets to all these should be available from 9am Friday.
Seminal grunge group Soundgarden got back together in 2010. When they played London last year, it was a relatively intimate affair in Shepherds Bush. On 18 September, they’ll play the larger O2 Brixton Academy. Tickets £38.50 + bf.
Fenech-Soler make funky, danceable electro-pop that’s great fun when you take it at face value. See them at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on 21 November. Tickets £14.50 + bf.
Islington’s gorgeous Union Chapel will host US country legend Kris Kristofferson on 26 September. Tickets £35 + bf.
Ellie Goulding has become somewhat ubiquitous since topping the BBC’s ‘Sound Of…’ poll in 2010. She plays properly big venues these days, which means you can see her at Hammersmith Apollo on 16 October. Tickets £22.50 + bf.
It feels as if there are loads of big gigs happening in London this summer, so here’s one more for the list. Elton John plays Hyde Park on 12 July, with support acts that include Ray Davies and Elvis Costello. Tickets from £59.50 + bf.
