Kraftwerk fans rushed to buy tickets to their upcoming UK tour today, with many commenting on 'the irony' of being asked to prove they're not a robot. The band announced their 11 UK dates earlier week, where they'll take their full 3D spectacular on the road in their first full tour of the UK since 2004. Tickets sold out within hours, even minutes for some venues, as fans took to Twitter to react to the rush. Renowned for their characters as 'robots' taken from their single of the same name, many fans found it amusing and ironic in being asked to prove that they were 'not robots' in passing the automated checks on ticket-buying pages: There is a delicious irony in having to repeatedly confirm that you aren't a robot while trying to buy Kraftwerk tickets.— Madame Ecosse (@emmalouisenicol) September 30, 2016 Whilst attempting to buy tickets for @Kraftwerk I had to prove I WASN'T a robot. That can't be right surely?? #Kraftwerk #WeAreTheRobots pic.twitter.com/6GuqO71OqT— Richard Marks (@RichardMlive) September 30, 2016 That Ticketmaster website asking me questions so as to prove I'm not a robot is annoyingThe irony wasn't lost on meWhen buying Kraftwerk pic.twitter.com/D0m7A78v7V— Nigel (@Fac586) September 30, 2016 When you're trying to get Kraftwerk tickets but Ticketmaster insist on killing your vibe. pic.twitter.com/ictEP0KhmN— Aakash Naik (@kashnaik) September 30, 2016 #IAmNotARobot #kraftwerk— Lorna (@LornaTh86177505) September 30, 2016 I almost missed out on Kraftwerk tickets because I refused to type in "I am not a ROBOT". #kraftwerk— Donny Keane (@DonnyKeane) September 30, 2016 Trying to buy tickets for #Kraftwerk and the Ticketmaster website keeps asking me to confirm that I'm not a robot.

Kings Of Leon have released the third song from their forthcoming album 'WALLS'. 'Around The World' was first previewed when the band played it live on BBC2's Later With Jools Holland. The studio version follows exactly a week after the title track from 'WALLS' was shared. The first single was 'Waste A Moment', which was released on September 9 and marked the Tennessee band's first new music since their previous album 'Mechanical Bull' in 2013. 'WALLS' is out on October 14. Its title is short for 'We Are Love Like Songs', keeping up the band's tradition of having five-syllable titles for all seven of their albums. The band play the fourth show since 'WALLS' was announced when they perform tomorrow (October 1) at Live Out Monterrey festival in Mexico alongside Foals, Chvrches, Twenty One Pilots and Jake Bugg. Other than their performance on Later, they have yet to play any UK shows for the new album. 'WALLS' is the band's first album to be produced by Markus Dravs, best known for his work with Coldplay and Arcade Fire. Singer Caleb Followill told NME the band are in despair at the US Presidential election, calling it "a fucking trainwreck." Followill said: "Donald Trump is going to win Tennessee, because Tennessee is a Republican state, so it doesn't matter what you do or who you vote for. But it's definitely a very funny situation going on."

The girlband were performing at the Auditorio Banamex in Monterrey, Mexico last night (Thursday 29 September) when the gig was interrupted. Footage shows the fan rushing Brooke and grabbing her before being halted and pulled away by a bouncer as she fell the floor.

Cabbage have announced new EP 'Uber Capitalist Death Trade'. Out today (September 30), the four-song EP features 'Free Steven Avery', their song about the prisoner from Making A Murderer, which also has the chorus "Death to Donald Trump". 'Uber Capitalist Death Trade' follows the band's support slot on Blossoms' tour, which saw them play London Forum last night. Their set ended with 'Free Steven Avery' as shirtless singers Lee Broadbent and Joe Martin gave each other piggybacks across the stage. In a statement, Cabbage said of the EP: "Exhibit A. 'Uber Capitalist Death Trade' is the first of its set. It pays homage to the tragedy of British soldiers being brainwashed and utilised, then either killed or spat out by the same vicious machine it salutes. It pays tribute to human nature being unforgiving and the pain of the vacuous socially cleansed cities versus the ghostly fallen towns of Britain. It prays to the gargantuan presence that is the United States Of Freedom and it begs to be punished by the sweet sweet pseudo tales of Manchester. Read a book, steal from a billionaire, listen to Cabbage. Exhibit A.” 'Uber Capitalist Death Trade' is released on The Coral singer James Skelly's record label Skeleton Key, the label Blossoms released their early singles on. The full tracklisting is: 'Uber Capitalist Death Trade'; 'Fickle'; 'Tell Me Lies About Manchester'; 'Free Steven Avery'. It's the five-piece's second EP, following 'Le Choux', which spawned the single 'Dinner Lady' released on The Charlatans singer Tim Burgess' record label O Genesis. Cabbage will play: Leicester Cookie (October 14) Oxford Bullingdon (15) Hull New Adelphi Club (20) Doncaster Social Bar (21) Preston Ferret (22) Bournemouth 60 Million Postcards (27) Manchester Ruby Lounge (28) Coventry Kasbah (29) Derby Venue (November 3) Liverpool Magnet (4) Bolton Blind Tiger (5) Reading Purple Turtle (10) Brighton Green Store Door (11) Plymouth Underground (12) Glasgow Stereo (17) Stockton-on-Tees Ku (18) Stoke Sugarmill (19)

There are as yet no live shows announced for 'A Seat At The Table'. Her most recent UK show was at Glastonbury in 2013. The tracklisting of 'A Seat At The Table' is: 'Rise' 'Weary' 'The Glory Is In You (Interlude)' 'Cranes In The Sky' 'Dad Was Mad (Interlude)' 'Mad' (Featuring Lil Wayne) 'Don't You Wait' 'Tina Taught Me' (Interlude) 'Don't Touch My Hair' (Featuring Sampha) 'This Moment' (Interlude) 'Where Do We Go' 'For Us By Us' (Interlude) 'FUBU' (Featuring The-Dream and BJ The Chicago Kid) 'Borderline (An Ode To Self Care)' (Featuring Q-Tip) 'I Got So Much Magic, You Can Have It' (Interlude, Featuring Kelly Rowland and Nia Andrews) 'Junie' 'No Limits' (Interlude) 'Don't Wish Me Well' 'Pedestals' (Interlude) 'Scales' (Featuring Kelela) 'The Chosen Ones'
