When bands become successful, your chances of seeing them in a small venue are mainly restricted to waiting until they come crashing back down the popularity scale again. Or is it? As a way of generating more excitement about the Brit Awards, organisers have assembled a series of gigs featuring Brit-nominated artists (and one northern act not nominated) playing in venues the coziness of which they haven't seen for quite some time.
Normally, you'd have to see these rather popular acts at places like the O2 Academy Brixton, surrounded by three times as many people, so demand for tickets is going to be pretty high. Which is why we're warning you now.
Tickets are all priced £20 (an undisclosed proportion which goes to War Child) and are available from 9am today at Dice.fm via the links above or axs.com/britsweek.
