TINA May steps up to the mic tomorrow night and begins her tribute to the French songstress and legend that is Edith Piaf.

Tina’s hypnotic stage presence, combined of course with some truly great vocal capabilities has led to awards and acclaim for the lady who does a sterling job of capturing Piaf’s essence.

Will she play Je Ne Regrette Rien?

Is David Cameron Tory?

Tickets are sixteen quid.

A day later and Real Diamond present a feast of fabulous from the American singer-songwriter who has offered up many a parcel of musical gold.

Most artists spend a lifetime hoping to craft a timeless classic, but Diamond spits them out one after another – Sweet Caroline, Forever in Blue Jeans, Hello, Love on the Rocks and America, and so on and so forth.

What an an amazing soundtrack.

Anyway, Real Diamonds will spill the goods from 8pm.

Tickets are £19.50.

GO! remembers seeing Thunder at the Monsters of Rock Festival many years ago, but after a couple of splits they are back in the saddle and hard at work again.

They’ve some history with the town too, and supported the beardy-best that is ZZ Top back at the start of the nineties, at the National Bowl.

On Sunday night, the Wavendon venue welcomes frontman Danny Bowes and guitarist Ben Matthews to the stage. The show will offer an opportunity to hear stripped down versions of their classic rock numbers (Backstreet Symphony and Love Walked In ringing any bells?) and they’ll share stories from their time in ‘the biz’.

“If you’re thinking of coming, please take note, it’s just a silly show with two old twits mucking about for a night.

“Don’t say you weren’t warned...” they say. Tickets are £17.50.

The Doric String Quartet, who have a particular penchant for music by Haydn, appear on Wednesday night at 8pm, but those of you who can’t get enought classical class might like to make tracks to the venue to be seated by 7pm when you can enjoy a free pre-concert talk.

While that is ongoing over in the Jim Marshall auditorium, on Stage 2 Danny Bryant’s Redeye Band will be holding court.

In the last decade, this chap has played more than 2000 shows around the world.

Don’t call this fret-feeler slack!

Tickets are £10 in advance, £12 on the night, and showtime is slightly later for this one, at 8.45pm.

Go book seats on MK 280800.
