First Call

MEL GIEDROYC AND SUE PERKINS take time out from their chatty TV show, Late Lunch, for their live tour, Back to Our Roots. In it they plan to unleash their unique mix of satirical girly humour, cocky self- derision and 1990s banter on audiences around the country. Having graduated from Channel 4's lunch-hour filler to the much vied-for 6pm slot, the popularity of these girls is soaring, so get your tickets without delay.

Venue information: 0990 748487 or, 6 Apr to 20 May

Last Call

A WEEK AFTER announcing a UK tour, only tickets for Bruce Springsteen (right) at Earl's Court remain. The lyrically gifted musician is more than deserving of his nickname The Boss and is one of the best leather- wearing musicians to come out of America. He enjoyed megastar status during the 1980s after the seminal Born in the USA, but the 1990s has seen him become more introspective with moody recordings like Human Touch and The Ghost of Tom Joad reflecting personal as well as artistic changes. His live shows are legendary and have been known to last for four hours or more.

Earl's Court, London SW5 (0171-385 1200) 19, 21 & 23 May
