O2 Priority: The gigs you must be at

Kaiserchiefs We’ve shown you how to have the time of your life with O2 Priority Moments, but bargains with leading brands aren’t the only treats the network has for you. O2 Priority Tickets gives you early access to gig tickets at venues across the country – we’ve picked out just a few over the coming months to get your ears salivating.


Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds
O2 Apollo Manchester, 26 October
The hotly anticipated return of Noel after Oasis split in 2009 takes place in the Gallagher brothers’ hometown. Noel was always the real star of the show at Oasis live performances – expect this to be electrifying.

J Cole
Nationwide, November
American rapper and Jay Z protege is bringing his lyrical skills to venues across the country throughout November, hitting London’s Electric Ballroom first before hitting Wales, the Midlands and the North.

Whitesnake
Nationwide, December
Hope you haven’t cut your hair recently – you’ll need to be shaking as much of it around as possible as the closest thing to a real life Spinal Tap takes to the stage, axes in hand. Expect this to be epic.

Olly Murs
Nationwide, February 2012
He may not have won X-Factor, but the cheeky Essex singer still impressed Simon Cowell enough to earn himself a record deal through his label. He’s proved his worth too, with number one singles to his name. Tickets will be in big demand, but with O2 Priority, you can get in early.

Kaiser Chiefs
Nationwide, February 2012
The Leeds lads have been on hiatus for some time, but are back with a new album, and they’re performing it live across the North and Scotland. We don’t predict a riot, but we do predict that tickets to see the rocksters will be in very high demand indeed.
