Comedian, writer and actor Patton Oswalt has spent the last decade headlining comedy clubs & theaters all over America in addition to nine seasons playing the role of Spence on CBS's hit show, King of Queens.

Written and directed by Dominic Champagne, this Cirque touring production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition. The word Varekai means "wherever" in the Romany language of the gypsies - the universal wanderers. Elements of Greek mythology spill through the narrative, as the legend of Icarus and his eagarness to touch the sun is given a brilliantly exotic twist. More info

The alt-rock heavens are opening, and an almighty deluge fast approaches in the form of a mammoth double headline tour featuring the as-until-recently-quiet heroes of melodic hard rock Incubus and fellow Californian grunge-metal champions Deftones. Yes, you heard correctly, they're teaming up and bringing along Canadian rock duo Death From Above 1979 and garage punk rockers The Bots as support. More info

Jazz rock greats are embarking on an extensive tour this summer, which includes a couple of headlining slots at Coachella, and they'll be joined by a very special support act - Elvis Costello and his band The Imposters. Coming to prominence in the 1970s, Steely Dan have one of the greatest catalogues of any still-touring rock band, and though the line-up has changed considerably over the years, founding members Walter Becker and Donald Fagen are still going strong.

The third leg (Act III: Hollywood) of J. Cole's Forest Hills Drive tour hits the States this July and August. It's all in support of last year's 2014 Forest Hills Drive album, a record which secured Cole's status among the genre's elite. Featuring the singles Apparently and G.O.M.D, the album mainly dealt with Cole's upbrining and his eventual move to New York from his childhood home in Fayetteville. More info
