Their last tour until at least 2018
After recently wowing 250,000 people across Europe’s arenas as the hand-picked main support act for Jeff Lynne’s ELO, the band have confirmed a run of dates including Manchester’s Club Academy before a tour finale at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
The band plan to play hits from across their catalogue, from 2006’s BRIT-nominated, Ivor Novello winning Twelve Stops And Home right up to this year’s acclaimed self-titled sixth album (praised by Mojo as “another tranche of top tunes”).
Says frontman Dan Gillespie Sells: “We’re not splitting up, but after ten incredible years of doing this non-stop, we feel like now is a good moment to take a break and spend some time concentrating on our other projects. We want to make this tour a celebration of everything we’ve achieved so far. I really can’t wait.”
The band will also headline the legendary Avalon Stage at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

12 October – Norwich, Waterfront
