Christmas 2016: Must-see concerts in London

Whether your old man’s a fan of jazz or your girlfriend’s a Chili Peppers fanatic, we’ve got you covered. What better way to heal a nation than dancing the night away under flashing strobe lights? DJ Zinc can’t think of one. Scroll down and have a gander, or risk missing out.
