Here’s our pick of gigs on sale this week. Tickets to all these should be available from 9am Friday.
Sharleen Spiteri’s Texas have ended their six-year hiatus, signed to a new label and have an album out on Monday. There are live dates too, so if you want to see what these 90s rockers are up to these days then you need to be at Hammersmith Apollo on 14 November. Tickets £37 + bf.
They come from Alan Partridge’s patch in Norfolk, but that’s about where Deaf Havana’s similarities with the digital radio star end. Did Partridge ever have a post-hardcore slot on his shows? See them at the Roundhouse on 25 October. Tickets £16 + bf.
Jack Black’s Tenacious D are back in the UK again, and if you don’t feel the novelty’s wearing off then you can see them at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 8 December. Tickets £35 + bf.
Teen favourites Paramore have booked a big date at Wembley Arena on 27 September. Tickets £29.50 + bf.
And reflective, sometimes introspective rocker Brendan Benson (who you may know from Jack White’s The Raconteurs) will be at Dingwalls on 21 August. Tickets £17.50 + bf.
