Best tickets to buy this week: 21 October

Featuring Coldplay, Ride, Warpaint and more

Some weeks there are a thousand-and-one events to buy tickets for, like a carnival with an endless supply of rides. But then there are times like this, when smaller acts know to keep their traps shut while a single behemoth of a band hoovers up ticketing sales like a Dyson on steroids.

This week falls into the latter category, as soft rock titans Coldplay announce their first tour in more than three years. Apart from that, we've got shoegaze legends, trip hop powerhouses and psych rock superstars announcing events for you to enjoy.

Remember – these tickets will sell out fast, so grab them ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Coldplay

Coldplay have announced a huge world tour with a handful of UK dates in support of their new album Music Of The Spheres. The album has stormed the charts since its release last Friday and shows that Chris Martin and co haven't lost their knack for crafting pitch perfect pop hits. The lads have a reputation for unleashing an awe-inspiring spectacle during their sets, and we'd amazed if this tour didn't continue in the spirit of their maximalist fantasia.

Tickets for Coldplay's UK tour dates go on general sale at 10am on Friday 22 October. Click here for performance dates and tickets.

Ride

Shoegaze cult favourites Ride have announced a tour of the UK to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their classic album Nowhere. Ride have always been a forward-looking band more interested in plugging their new release than ploughing old furrows, so this rare surge of nostalgia will be a treat for fans and newcomers alike.

Tickets for Ride's 30th anniversary tour go on sale at 10am on Friday 22 October. Click here for performance dates and tickets.

Morcheeba

Laid back electronica duo Morcheeba have announced a handful of UK tour dates for December, which they're dubbing the Blackest Blue tour after the name of their tenth studio album. The band, now a duo, have always been the most chilled out exponents of 90s trip hop, sunnier than their peers Portishead and Massive Attack but with the same air of cool detachment, and this tour promises much of the same. So get tickets, pull up a pew and relax to their inviting electronic sounds.

Tickets for Morcheeba's UK tour are on sale now. Click here for performance dates and tickets.

Warpaint

Hip LA psych rockers Warpaint have announced a series of UK tour dates for May 2022. Although they're yet to announce a new album, we'll be amazed if the band haven't released fresh material before then. Either way, hits like 'Billie Holiday', 'New Song', 'Elephants' and 'Undertow' make them well worth seeing.

Tickets for Warpaint go on sale at 10am on Friday 22 October. Click here for performance dates and tickets.
