7 TO SEE What's Hot This Week; Comedy ARMSTRONG & MILLER Friday September 24 Wolverhampton Civic Hall 0870 320 7000 FOLLOWING the Success of BBC One's Armstrong & Miller Show, Ben Miller and Alexander Armstrong Hit the Civic Stage with a Brand New Live Show


classical ANDR[ETH] RIEU Thursday September 23, LG Arena. 0844 338 8000 HE is the biggest touring classical artist in the world - but with a down to earth touch.

Having topped the Billboard Hot Tour rankings with his sold-out World Stadium Tour in 2009, Dutch violinist and conductor Andr Rieu brings his spectacular production to the UK for the first time.

Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra, Choir and soloists, appear at Birmingham's showpiece arena on Thursday.

A musical phenomenon, Andr Rieu is unlike anything else in the entertainment world. Music fans can expect the experience of a lifetime when they attend the only classical concerts where the audience jump to their feet and dance in the aisles.

A romantic Strauss waltz might be followed by a hot samba; a symphony by some cool jazz.

Having already created an international revival in waltz music with his spellbinding musical extravaganzas, Rieu very quickly won the hearts of the British public with the release of his album Forever Vienna.

It smashed chart records by reaching No 2 in the UK pop charts, as well as going straight in at No 1 of the classical chart.

Conducting the Johann Strauss Orchestra with his violin bow - just like the composer himself - Rieu's onstage charisma and rock star demeanour make his live shows simply irresistible.

At heart he's a fan himself, and believes concerts are to be enjoyed rather than admired. This, remember, is the only classical musician of note to appear in Aussie soap Neighbours.

But before you call the flying Dutchman any names, be warned that he speaks Dutch, English, German, French, Italian and Spanish!

pop MGMT Thursday September 23, 02 Academy, Birmingham. 0844 477 2000 THE oracular spectacular MGMT jet in from New York for a gig on the back of their sophomore set, Congratulations. Be amazed as Andrew Wells VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser leap from psychedelic pop to alternative rock and all stations in between.
