The Pigeon Detectives have announced a 10th anniversary tour celebrating the release of platinum selling debut album Wait For Me.  The tour opens at Manchester Academy.

Formed in 2002 The Pigeon Detectives are Matt Bowman on lead vocals, Oliver Main and Ryan Wilson on guitars, Dave Best on Bass, and Jimmi Naylor on drums. The band enjoyed a meteoric rise starting in Leeds where they released their first single in 2005 with Leeds label Dance to the Radio, then growing into the UK Music scene rapidly with ‘Wait for Me’ which celebrates it’s 10th Birthday in May 2017.

Within a year of release singles from the album such as ‘Take her Back’, ‘I’m Not Sorry’ and ‘I Found Out’ had dominated the national airwaves.

The run of 14 UK shows will see The Pigeon Detectives performing Wait For Me in full and is accompanied by a special double 12” vinyl re-release of the album with B-Sides and previously unheard tracks, as well as a digital re-release of the album and all its B-sides.

Speaking about the re-release and tour singer Matt Bowman said: “We will forever be grateful for the opportunities and adventures that our debut album provided us with. For anyone that’s ever been to see us live, you know the connection we have with our fanbase is a special one. So we thought what better way to pay homage to the album on its 10th birthday than to take it on tour and play it in FULL for the first time ever!”
