This week is a bumper bonanza of concert announcements of acts I like coming to Belfast in 2018. My bank account is going to take a beating ……. and then I have two family birthdays this week as well.

I’ve already got a Noel Gallagher ticket on presale, now i’m getting primed to get tickets for Stereophonics and Paloma Faith. Wish me luck.

Here’s some charts to get you in the mood.

Also, Monday is Phil Oakey’s birthday on Monday. I’m having a bit of a Human League thing at the moment, mainly due to the Top Of The Pops repeats on BBC Four. Sometimes it’s easy to forget how good a band is.

I’m really regretting not seeing The Human League when they’ve been to Belfast in recent years.

2. The Human League – Tell Me When
3. The Human League – Don’t You Want Me?
