Ticket Alert: Gigs on Sale This Morning

This week's on-sales include an ageing showbiz legend, reunited indie-punkers - and a bespectacled ex-tea-shop-owning vegan. All these tickets should be available from 9am or 10am today.

  • Adele's second record, '21', has garnered cracking reviews and shot straight to the top of the album chart. Riding the crest of an appearance at the Brits last week, she'll bring her warm, powerful voice to the Hammersmith Apollo on 19 September and to the Royal Albert Hall on 22 September. These are sure to sell out.
  • Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine are returning (again). Since reuniting in 2007, the punky duo of Fruitbat and Jim Bob have played sporadically in the capital. You can catch them on 19 November (yes, you'll need to plan ahead somewhat) at Brixton Academy. Tickets available here.
  • You may recognise his songs from various adverts from the early 2000s, but with an album count that's nearly in double figures, Moby has enough electronic ambient dance-pop to play for hours. Catch his atmospheric show at The Roundhouse on 2 June. Get your tickets now.
  • He may not be the trendiest of figures, but there's no denying Neil Diamond's track record. He played the now-defunct BBC Electric Proms at The Roundhouse last year, and now the singer-songwriter has booked in at The O2 on 9 July. Sweet Caroline! Get tickets here.
  • If set length was a valid measure of gig quality, Mr Scruff would be way ahead. His six-hour DJ sets are the stuff of legend; the combination of hip-hop, funk, dancey stuff and more chilled out jazz will leave you gasping for a nice cup of tea. Luckily, he runs a tea company too. Catch him at Koko on 21 May.

Also available this morning: Chapel Club at Shepherd's Bush Empire, Glasvegas at the Forum in Kentish Town - and Funeral Party at Heaven.
