You’ve seen the hordes of overexcited fans queuing up for an eternity to snare these hotcake tickets, now the highly-anticipated event is finally due to hit town!

I’m sure you’ve all heard of legendary guitarist Eric Clapton coming to town, but don’t miss out on catching equally impressive guitarist Tommy Emmanuel as he rocks our shores this Sunday (check out expert contributor Patrick Chng’s other recommendations on live gigs in October).
