It’s New Year’s Eve: the beers are flowing; you’re washing down anything that happens to make its into your palm, while the UK’s best hype man (no, it’s not Skibadee) backing a triumphantly psychedelic lad rock outfit. You are, of course, at Kasbian’s NYE bonanza. They play with support from Chase and Status and Zane Lowe.
Kasabian tickets are priced at £37.75 (£32.50 Ticket plus £5.25 Fees)
Following the success of their first Brixton Academy show earlier this year, The Levellers are back on 18 December with bezzie cohorts Dreadzone and Back To The Planet. Tickets for that are here, for £27.50 but we thoroughly recommend the pre-party from 3pm with Red Rose Empire, Gypsies and the excellent Sly and Reggie.
Tickets for the pre-show are just £5.

Ticket prices range venue by venue, but expect them to be around £20.
