IdlesWith their last shows selling out in minutes, political post-punk Bristolian five-piece Idles is a band going places. They have previously supported the likes of Foo Fighters and The Maccabees at Alexandra Palace and this December they return as the headliners. Nominated for Breakthrough Artist at the Brit Awards, they performed a raucous Jools Holland debut which NME called "history in the making... incomparably brilliant", likening it to Arctic Monkeys and Kanye West's first appearances on the show. This live gig offers fans a chance to see a band famed as much for their frantic, unforgettable live shows as its rousing songs.

About Alexandra Palace

After a shaky start - destroyed by fire 16 days after 'The People's Palace' first opened in 1873 - Alexandra Palace re-opened again two years later becoming the place from where the BBC beamed its first broadcast in 1935. The palace title maybe a little misleading - it's charm being more shabby chic than regal. More about Alexandra Palace
