London Gigs Diary: 22-28 July 2013



anthony and the johnsonsThis week sees Thom Yorke-led supergroup Atoms For Peace take up a three-night residency at the Roundhouse – the band’s first live outings in London. If you missed out on tickets, you can watch the show by buying individual tracks or the entire gig, via Soundhalo – surely the first of many such ventures.

Expect big things over at the Royal Opera House later in the week, as Anthony And The Johnsons join forces with the Britten Sinfonia for the first London performance of Swanlights.

Following a Glastonbury set that was heavy on new material, Smashing Pumpkins will again be airing new tracks at Wembley Arena on Monday, with support from Ash, while Wu-Tang Clan will call into Brixton Academy on Friday, as part of their 20th anniversary tour.
