Rounding up the latest gig news…

BRITs-nominated artist John Grant will run a last lap in honour of his solo LP of 2013, ‘Pale Green Ghosts’, playing a number of UK shows in June. The dates, which fit in around Grant’s summer festival appearances, range from 22 Jun at Stratford Upon Avon’s Royal Shakespeare Theatre, to the Brighton Dome on 27 Jun. Go to his touring page for full listings.

Now to the latest from Macaulay Culkin’s pizza-based Velvet Underground tribute band, Pizza Underground (pictured). Culkin and co are taking a pizza the live action (sorry) via a sprinkling of UK dates, the first of which is on 21 May at Concrete in London, the bunker underneath the Pizza East eatery. You could not make this up if you wanted to. The other shows are on 1 Jun at the Adelphi Club in Hull and on 4 Jun at Gloucester Guildhall. Peace out.

James Blake collaborator Chance The Rapper is to take his ‘Acid Rap’ mixtape and other hits to London in July. Coinciding with his showing at this year’s Wireless Festival, the one-off gig is at The Forum on 15 Jul. Head to for details.
