Ticket Alert: Gigs on Sale Friday 18 March

This week's onsales include a super-cool duo with a Jack White connection, some powerful soul - plus a last hurrah for some north Londoners. All tickets should be available from around 9am Friday.

  • Big-haired Aussie rock group Wolfmother made quite a splash back in 2006, but differences within the band led to a new line-up in 2009. Their website says they've been in the studio recently, and you can see them at the HMV Forum on 1 June. Tickets from here.
  • Tinie Tempah, the only artist who's ever had the front to rhyme 'Scunthorpe' with 'Concorde' seems to be everywhere at the moment. And he'll definitely be at The O2 on 4 November, as part of his first arena tour. Bring the stars out with tickets here.
  • Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince are The Kills, an-almost-so-cool-they're-ridiculous duo. Formed in 2000, their garage rock only really came to prominence in 2008. They've already sold out Heaven this year and their new single's a cracker, so see them at The Roundhouse on 3 June
  • You could be forgiven for thinking Weezer's best days were behind them. But think again: in 50 minutes at Reading Festival last year, Rivers Cuomo & Co proved they can produce a live performance of as much imagination and flair as ever. They play Brixton Academy on 6 July. Tickets from here.
  • Elegant soul singer Erykah Badu sure can hold a note. And with a reputation for lengthy sets of surprising subtlety, you might get good value if you go to see her at Brixton Academy on 17 July. You'll find tickets here.
  • Finally, a quick word for north London stalwarts The Holloways, who are calling time on their catchy brand of indie-pop. The band will get one last send-off at the Relentless Garage by the Holloway Road (where else?) on 23 May. Wish them well with tickets from here.

Also booking this week: Goldie Lookin' Chain at the Electric Ballroom and Ryan Adams at the Barbican.
