ROCK'n'roll legend Joe Brown is back at the Alban Arena on Sunday by popular demand.

One of the country’s best-loved, enduring and most acclaimed musicians, Joe and his band will be putting on a two-hour concert.

He marked his 50th year as a professional entertainer in 2008 and three years later, he is still going strong.

The concert begins at 7.30pm and tickets at £22.50 and £20.50 are available from the Arena box office on 01727 844488 or go to www.alban-arena.co.uk

Dan Clark, star of BBC sitcom How Not to Live Your Life, stops off at the Arena on Monday, April 18, as part of his first UK stand-up tour since 2007.

Best known for his portrayal of loveable rogue Don Danbury in the hit BBC 3 sitcom which is now in its third series, he also starred as Johnny Two Hats in The Mighty Boosh.

On stage since the age of 19, Dan previously performed for four years in sketch group Electric Eel which led to their own TV series for Channel Four, The Estate Agents.

The group performed for the last time together in 2003 and Dan returned as a solo artist to Edinburgh in 2005 and 2006 before his tour across the UK in 2007.

The new show will explore some of the modern issues around men – their lack of interpersonal skills and how dating has changed with the rise of the internet.

He will also take a look at the neurosis of modern man, how he dates women and looks for love in an age of social networking.

The show, which starts at 8pm will feature several of Dan’s quirky comedy songs along with tongue-in-cheek humour.

Tickets are £15.

Following on from the success of his last tour Different Class, Irish comedy star Ed Byrne is back on the road with his new show Crowd Pleaser which can be seen at the Arena from next Thursday, April 21, to Saturday, April 23.

He will cast his curmudgeonly eye over such issues as being a nerd, owning a cat, meeting your heroes or becoming a dad.

Joining him on on stage at 8pm each night will be fellow Irish funny man Karl Spain.

Since he was last on tour Ed has hosted Live at the Apollo as well as being a regular panellist on Mock the Week and Have I Got News for You.

He has also appeared in Miranda Hart’s Christmas Unwrapped and has recently been seen “roasting” Davina for Channel 4.

A particular highlight for Ed was taking part in Celebrity Mastermind and he is also a regular contributor to comedy and music shows on Radio 2 and Radio 4.

Tickets are £20.
