    Kate Bush

    Boy, were we excited when Kate Bush announced she was playing her first gigs in 35 years. But then tickets proved impossible to get (they sold out in 15 minutes) and we had a hissy fit. Still, those who did manage to get their hands on tickets will be in for an absolute stonker of a showwhen her Before The Dawn tour rolls into town this August.


    Not just one but two of our favourite childhood bands back and better than ever before, as one giant supergroup. Man, are we (secretly) jealous of anyone with a ticket to the McBusted tour, happening this spring/summer. The only one missing is Charlie from Busted (a.k.a. the fit one with the eyebrows). Come on Charlie, jump on the bandwagon, please…

    All Saints
    Never, Ever saw this coming (see what we did there?). The original cool 90s girl band (after the Spice Girls, obviously) reformed last year, and wowed the crowd at their first gig in over a decade back in March (minus their trademark combats). We cannot wait to see whether their rumoured upcoming album is really on the cards, so watch this space.
    Anastacia returns this month with her first album in five years, very aptly called “Resurrection”, following her second battle with breast cancer in 2013. What a gal. We’re seriously (in a guilty pleasures sort of way, you understand) looking forward to some more of her trademark power ballads. 
    The Kooks
    The Kooks were huge back in the mid-noughties (Naive, anyone?) but seemed to have vanished in recent years. But not for much longer, because the boys are back and touring the UK this spring. And they’ll be releasing a new album, “Listen”, come September. We always had a soft spot for curly-haired frontman Luke Pritchard so this can only be good news, as far as we’re concerned. 

    He’s rumoured to be playing at Glastonbury (please, please, please) and his surprise gigs earlier in the year saw the likes of Kate Moss and Adele in the front row. You can get in on the action by seeing the living legend on his six-date tour this month. Get in!

    And the most unexpected comeback of them all…

    Michael Jackson
    Now obviously this isn’t technically a comeback (for obvious reasons), but we were still pretty surprised to hear that Jacko will be releasing a posthumous album on 13 May, with previously unheard material. Very intriguing indeed…
