Bridget Jones's Diary in Concert @ Bridgewater Hall Tuesday 6th November Not technically a gig, but is it? I don't really know if it fits in this category, but there'll be a full orchestra playing while the film is showing so I'm going to say that yes - it is a gig. A classical gig. Played to everyone's favourite chick flick. Buy Tickets   Lewis Capaldi @ Albert Hall Tuesday 6th November Singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi is returning to Manchester this week with a big show at the beautiful Albert Hall. Since leaving college, Lewis has embarked on a rather rollercoaster journey, with some massive stats on his debut self-release 'Bruises' and more recently getting long-listed for the BBC Sound of 2018. Buy Tickets   Killing Joke @ Manchester Academy Wednesday 7th November This lot have been going for around 40 years now and not even a mild case of angina, or serious bouts of Werther's Original sucking is going to get in the way of them rocking the roof off Manchester Academy this week. Buy Tickets   Bugzy Malone @ Mayfield Thursday 8th November Legendary Grime artist Bugzy Malone is coming home to Manchester with his huge ‘B.INSPIRED’ UK tour and two nights at Manchester’s Mayfield Depot this week. Should be a massive one! Buy Tickets   Sigrid @ Albert Hall Thursday 8th November Pretty much appearing out of nowhere last year like a Scandinavian apparition, Sigrid has smashed it in 2018, with a string of hits and a long list of ticked off gigs around the world. Well, she's in town this week and there's still the odd ticket flying around. Be quick though! Buy Tickets   Slayer @ Manchester Arena Friday 9th November Another bit of heavy rock and roll for you now as Slayer enter the doors of Manchester Arena to play in front of a massive crowd of people wearing black t-shirts and doing this - 🤘 - with their hands. They've got about 30 years of tunes to blast out, so prepare for a long one. Buy Tickets   The Real Thing @ The Lowry Saturday 10th November Singers of probably one of the greatest songs known to man, The Real Thing are the Liverpudlian band responsible for 'You to Me Are Everything' - pretty much the most perfect song ever and my typical go-to at karaoke establishments. They’re at The Lowry this weekend baby! Buy Tickets
