Ticket Alert: Kasabian, Evanescence, Joss Stone And More

You'll need something to look forward to in the autumn, once the Olympic circus has left town. So why not check out the gigs on sale this week?

Kasabian have slotted a date at O2 Academy Brixton in between their various festival shows this summer. Expect a quick sell-out for the gig, which takes place on 20 August. Tickets £30 + bf.

Gothic rock group Evanescence have some seriously loyal fans. And they'll no doubt flock to Wembley Arena on 9 November when flamboyant front woman Amy Lee takes to the stage with the rest of her band. Tickets £30 + bf.

Having played two Brixton dates in June, Jack Black's Tenacious D have decided to visit HMV Hammersmith Apollo in the autumn. They'll be supporting their third album, the appallingly-named Rize of the Fenix. Catch them there on 24 October. Tickets £35 + bf.

Last year's release of Joss Stone's fifth album, LP1, was somewhat overshadowed when the singer found herself at the centre of a sinister news story. She's back this year with a new CD of covers, and will play O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on 5 September. Tickets £25 + bf.

Five-piece US pop-punkers Motion City Soundtrack play beneath the arches at Heaven on 17 September. The band's latest material has a poppier sound and has received mixed reviews. See how it translates to a live setting for £15 + bf.

Finally, if you're at a loose end this evening, get your skates on and you might still be able to get tickets on the door for Charlotte Gainsbourg at Somerset House.

Also booking this week: Sebastien Tellier, INME and Lynryd Skynyrd.
