Ticket Alert: Gigs on Sale This Morning

With a country music institution, an annual charity shindig at the Albert Hall, a spot of folky pop and some noisy rock, there's something for everyone on sale today. Well, almost. Tickets to all these gigs should be available from around 9 or 10am.

  • No doubt attracting an army of blonde-wigged fans, country music institution Dolly Parton visits The O2 on 7 September. If the prospect of a 9 to 5 singalong doesn't gladden your heart a little, you must really hate country. Tickets on sale here.
  • The annual Concerts for Teenage Cancer Trust were announced this week. From 21 - 27 March, acts including Roger Daltrey, Beady Eye (Liam Gallagher's new project), Biffy Clyro and Editors will grace the Royal Albert Hall. It's a stunning venue and it's for charity, so check the full line up and get tickets now.
  • Noah and the Whale won a lot friends with their first two albums. Back in London on 16 May in support of a third record, their upbeat folk should make The Roundhouse feel more intimate than its size suggests. Tickets available here.
  • Reformed duo Death From Above 1979 play their first UK gig for five years on 5 May. The dirty rockers could turn the HMV Forum in Kentish Town into a sweaty, ear-ringing mess. Expect a ferociously primal sound that could spark riots. Or one hell of a mosh pit, at least. Get tickets now.
  • Islington's Union Chapel provides such beautiful surroundings that we couldn't resist this: Tim Burgess and Mark Collins from The Charlatans head over to the octagonal venue on 16 March. Find tickets here to appreciate the atmosphere and delicacy of this acoustic show.

Also available: Wireless Festival in Hyde Park (pick your favourite headliner from Pulp, Chemical Brothers and Black Eyed Peas) and Sum 41 at the Camden Underworld.
