The best tickets on sale this week for gigs, plays and more
As pandemic restrictions ease and venues tentatively open their doors, bands big and small are announcing gigs. This week we've seen a series of intimate socially-distanced performances planned for the coming months, as well as full-capacity worldwide tours for 2022. We're looking forward to joining a teeming crowd for some amazing live music very soon, and we hope you are too. Here are the best tickets on general sale this week.
St. Vincent is set to hit the UK and Ireland in July 2022, with a handful of dates slated for Dublin, Edinburgh and London. The tour comes in support of her latest album Daddy's Home, her first explicitly autobiographical work to date which discusses her father's release from prison.

Comedy of Errors
The Royal Shakespeare Company are set to perform the early Shakespearean classic The Comedy of Errors at the Barbican in a six-week run throughout winter 2021.
