It may be raining cats and dogs in London, but the sun is undoubtedly shining on the live music circuit this week! Check out our hand-picked selection of the hottest new shows across the globe – all on sale today. (April 27th)
The wait is officially over. It’s been three long years since Bloc Party last played a show on American soil, but Kele and co are back, and with new material to boot. A string of festival shows are already on the cards – Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Outside Lands – but news broke last week of an epic three night residency at Terminal 5, with support from The Drums. With a fourth LP on the way, music fans (us included) wait with baited breath to see what direction Bloc Party will take next. New Yorkers can buy their tickets this morning for the newly announced show on 7th August and find out first hand.
The Killers, Justice, The Kooks, Sigur Ros and more will descend on the Spanish capital in September for a knock-out two day festival, as DCODE returns for it’s second edition. Last time out saw The Hives, Sum 41 and Kasabian steal the show, and things can only get better with this bumper line-up set for 2012. Two-day passes go on sale today!
Hip-hop legends Cypress Hill have announced a one off UK show at the HMV Forum in Kentish Town. The group, who’ve been plugging away since 1988, are set to release a highly anticipated collaborative album with dub-step producer Rusko. What presence the new material will take on the live stage remains to be seen, but fans can certainly expect something special. This is the only British stop on a very brief European tour, so don’t miss out – grab your tickets this morning.
Motorhead, who have over 2400 past concerts listed on Songkick (and 56 upcoming shows for 2012!) will hit the UK later this year for a mammoth nationwide tour. The band celebrated 35 years on the road last year and show no signs of slowing down, as dates in London, Manchester, Glasgow and more have all been penned for November. Support comes from Anthrax. Tickets go on sale, today!
