Ticket Alert: Gigs on Sale Friday 25 March

This week's on-sales include current stars, legends who've been around a while - and an indie rock band with a recognisable name but an almost all-new line-up.

  • Been wondering what happened to Razorlight? After a lacklustre third album, the band's line-up changed almost completely, leaving the sometimes arrogant-sounding Johnny Borrell the only remaining original member. As a result, it's hard to know what to expect should you see them at Get Loaded in the Park on 12 June. You can get tickets here.
  • If you didn't manage to catch Liam Gallagher's new band, Beady Eye, at The Troxy earlier this month, there's a Japan earthquake fundraiser happening that'll be right up your street. See Gallagher & Co, plus Primal Scream, Paul Weller, Richard Ashcroft and more at Brixton Academy on 3 April. Tickets to this will get snapped up.
  • Good grief, Rihanna has added another show at The O2, taking the number of gigs she'll be playing there to nine. Ticket touts must be tearing their hair out, but that's good if you've not booked up yet. The 22 December date should be everything you expect from a big name arena show. Get tickets here.
  • Paul Simon heads to the Hammersmith Apollo on 28 June as part of a European tour in support of his new album. With such an extensive, varied back catalogue to draw on, the singer-songwriter's bound to wheel out some classics, and also promises to air 'songs he has not performed live in many years'. Get tickets from here.
  • Liverpudlians Echo and the Bunnymen are still going strong, even more than 30 years on from the band's original incarnation. As is the fashion now, they'll be playing the 1984 album 'Ocean Rain' in full at the Palladium on 26 September. Expect Ian McCulloch's voice to be as powerful and recognisable as ever at the heart of the Bunnymen's dark, strident sound. Tickets available from here.

Also booking: Tinie Tempah at Wembley Arena, Howling Bells at The Scala and The Horrors at York Hall.
