Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Sophie Ellis-Bextor (pictured) is back! With a one-off show, and the outline of her new LP ‘Wanderlust’, produced, co-written and arranged by Ed Harcourt. The gig, which is at London’s Bush Hall on 21 Jan, will follow ‘Wanderlust’, which is due to come out the previous day. Info is here.

Sticking with live goings-on, The Killers have also announced a one-off date. Like Sophie EB’s, it’s in London, only at the Hammersmith Apollo on 6 Nov, which coincides quite slickly with the 10 Nov release of the band’s new ‘best of’ collection ‘Direct Hits’. Spooky tickets to the show will go on sale on Halloween.

Now, to a tour. A Cass McCombs tour in support of his new LP ‘Big Wheel & Others’ to be precise. Starting at Bristol’s Colston Hall on 8 Jan 2014, it’ll progress through three further stops, winding up at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London on 13 Jan. Find full listings at this URL.
