Covering all angles
CAN a venue be all things to all people? Plymouth Pavilions has a pretty good crack at it again this autumn.
The new programme unveiled this week rolls from the Vaccines through a taste of Queen via a spot of Deacon Blue colour to hot-blooded schlock with Vampires Rock.
You can pop in for David Essex (November 4), Peter Andre (November 16) and the Overtones (December 20).
Alternatively, you could choose to glam up for the return of Paloma Faith (February 15) or hip-hop in the company of Rizzle Kicks (November 21).

You could get more thoughtful with guitarist and multiple-ex-frontman Paul Carrack (January 18), be sensitive to Ed Sheeran, or go local with Ben Howard (November 3) as he steps up to the big stage, big time.
There's room to Squeeze in (November 20) one of the most tuneful and lyrically clever bands of a generation, and catch their one-time keyboard fella Jools Holland, who pays his usual pre-Christmas visit, with guests including KT Tunstall on December 14. Madness rock our house on December 4.
Nostalgia is like it used to be in the fraternal company of Jake and Elwood, who bring the music of the Blues Brothers with the Black Rhino Band (October 6), One Night of Queen with Gary Mullen (December 15) and Rumours of Fleetwood Mac (a tribute to that band and that album, February 6).
Fancy a laugh? There's matey humour with John Bishop (the season opener on September 18 and 19), intelligent craziness from Jason Byrne (November 7), deadpan one-liners from the never taxing Jimmy Carr (November 24), and way-off-the-wall humour with Ross Noble (November 27).
There's much harking back with Vampires Rock (October 26) but LOUDER.
Cover boy for the new season is Sheeran. His October 22 arrival should be the highlight of the year for the sensitive soulful soloist types.
Indie rockers can get their fix of the new kings of, The Vaccines, on November 15, who are fresh from infecting the summer festival scene.
Deacon Blue roll up on October 21 to remind their fans of how old they have suddenly become – we're talking 25th anniversary tour, grandparents.
To prove that the Pavilions can do more than just be the South West's top music space, Cinderella on Ice delivers the most consecutive performances for any one show in the venue's 21-year history. The Russian ice stars arrive on Boxing Day for their 13-night run.
And there's another chance to watch Brendan Cole's hips wiggle on January 27.
In between the music, dance and comedy, Plymouth Raiders will be serving up their usual hoopla, sports fans.
