Squeeze Way back in 1973 two chaps from South London formed a band that saw them christened the ‘The New Lennon and McCartney’. Three decades later they are still performing, now with a massive back catalogue of hits and they're on an extensive run of UK dates starting at the delectable Symphony Hall in Birmingham. So welcome to the 'new Paul and John' - Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook in full band mode as Squeeze.

Extended hiatus (or split) in the early 90s, it was the early noughties before they came back together and have toured ever since (with a hint of an album in the pipeline?) - welcome tonight The Psychedelic Furs.

Linkin Park It's a very warm night as a few thousand head towards Birmingham's Barclaycard Arena. Tonight's main (and only) artists have always kinda divided opinion; like Marmite - you love them or hate them. Their latest offering has also added to that confusion with somewhat of a backlash from the critics. The fans are here in droves, so clearly they don't feel that; so welcome tonight to Bennington, Shinoda and the rest of the chaps who make up Linkin Park, this date part of their 'One More Light' World Tour.

Depeche Mode Legendary. Inspirational. Influential. Iconic. These words are more than apt for a band that have delivered so much on multiple levels for well over three decades, and remain right at the top of their game. Bizarrely in the UK, their home turf, they have remained stuck in this "cult like" status, while across the rest of the world they are at the top of all touring artists with stadia tours. Well tonight, after a career of more that 37 years, to a sold out London Stadium with a potential gig capacity of 80,000, Depeche Mode have come home. To show us exactly what they are giving to the rest of the world on a their 'Global Spirit' Tour.
