Rounding up the latest gig news…

Goldfrapp told the world of their ‘Tales Of Us’ 2014 tour the other day, which shares its name with the LP they released on another day earlier this year. Starting 26 Mar at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall, the run encompasses nine shows all told, the last at the Sage Gateshead on 7 Apr. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, via this Tumblr page which also has the full listings.

Nina Persson (pictured), part-time singer with The Cardigans, will give her forthcoming first solo LP ‘Animal Heart’ a promotional boost by playing live all over Europe in 2014. Following a line of live dates on the continent, she’ll stop at London’s Scala on 5 Mar, and again on the following night at The Button Factory in Dublin. Get tickets here, and see the clip for the LP’s title single here:

All-American rap star Childish Gambino, real name Donald Glover, has set an apparently ‘select’ pair of headline dates in Feb 2014. The first is at The Gorilla in Manchester on 5 Feb, and the other is on 6 Feb at Koko in London. Both will form part of the post-release fanfare for Gambino/Glover’s sophomore long player ‘Because The Internet’. Tickets into both will be available from Friday.

And lastly, soul man Nick Waterhouse is to do his oh-so-smooth live thing c/o a gig at (provided it’s still standing) London’s Oslo on 10 Apr 2014. Waterhouse has an album, ‘Holly’, out on 3 Mar 2014, of course, so play a sample of what that’ll sound like now in YouTube clip-form:
