One of the many perks of studying and living in London is that when your favourite music artists tour the UK, they almost always stop off in the capital. As Britain’s most vibrant city, it’s no surprise that musicians want to experience its unique atmosphere first hand.
Pure Student Living has put together a list of five big and small concerts that are worth checking out this autumn.
Angel Olsen – Monday 1st September and Thursday 25th September at the Electric Ballroom, Camden Town (£14.50)
The Electric Ballroom in Camden is one of Angel Olsen's stops for the tour of her new album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness. The Chicago singer-songwriter's previous material is largely stripped-down folk, while her new album incorporates a garage rock sound.
This should sound great in such an intimate venue, and her back catalogue is strong and varied enough to provide attendees with their money's worth.
Allah-Las – Wednesday 24th September at Oval Space, Bethnal Green (£12.50)
Californian four-piece Allah-Las have been described by critics as a 'garage surf rock' band, and have been compared to sixties acts such as the Animals, the Doors and the Zombies.
They have a cult following which has gradually built up since the release of their self-titled debut album in 2012.
Allah-Las' second album comes out just a few days before the Oval Space gig, so fans will enjoy all of their best material. At £12.50, it's a great way to spend a Wednesday night in September.
Kylie Minogue – Monday 29th September at the O2 (from £50)
Since she released her first album in 1988, Kylie Minogue has been one of the world's favourite pop stars. She released her 12th studio album, Kiss Me Once, earlier this year.
She will perform songs from the new album and her enormous back catalogue at the O2, which is bound to be an entertaining night given her reputation as a true performer.
Pharrell – Thursday 9th October at the O2 (from £90)
Multiple Grammy-winner Pharrell is set to visit London at the start of October to promote his much-awaited second solo album, G I R L.
It's his first solo tour in eight years, so you can bet the O2 will have an electric atmosphere on the night. The O2 is a big venue to fill, but if any R&B artist has the fan base to do so, it's Pharrell.
Jamie T – Friday 14th November at Alexandra Palace (£22.50)
After five years of no new material, Londoner Jamie T's highly anticipated new album is set for release in October, which he will promote with a 10-show UK tour.
He's saving the capital until last, where he'll play a huge show at Alexandra Palace – one of London's most-loved and established entertainment venues.
