The coolest man in pop hits the UK this month for a batch of rescheduled dates taking in Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, London and Bristol. Drummer Brittany Brooks is super juiced about the tour. So are we. Are you? If not, you should be.

I Am Arrows

Former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows continues to front his ELO-esque project I Am Arrows with a run of live dates in March. We loved the band’s infectious debut album and can’t wait to hear it’s pop rock tunes when Andy hits the road.

X Factor Live

The chance to see Wagner, Matt Cardle and One Direction all in the same show? We’re there. Drummer Simon Merry has the unenviable task of anchoring an evening full of pop hits performed by stars of the latest X Factor series. Not one for music snobs, but hugely entertaining nevertheless.

New York Dolls

Pre-punk survivors New York Dolls are back this month in support of new album Dancing Backwards In High Heels. Expect hard-edged anthems, a wall-shaking show and plenty of attitude from men old enough to know better. Oh, and the wearing of sunglasses and scarves in doors.

Killing Joke

With drummer Paul Ferguson back in the fold this is a must-see set of shows from the seminal post-punk rockers. Take in one of their shows in March and April to find out just why they’re so readily name-checked by up-and-coming bands. And also where Nirvana got the riff for ‘Come As You Are’ from.

Glassjaw

A rare treat comes your way this month as influential post-hardcore stars Glassjaw finally make it to the UK. Find out if they were worth the wait at London’s HMV Forum on 30 March. We’d put money on it being very much worth the wait.
