NME Radar Tour 2009: bands, dates and ticket details revealed
Golden Silvers will headline this year's NME Radar Tour.

The Londoners will joined on our new talent showcase by Marina And The Diamonds, Local Natives and Yes Giantess for the 15-date tour, which kicks off in September.

The bands follow in the footsteps of acts like La Roux, who headlined the April leg of the tour this year.

"It's got that element of old school rock'n'roll about it…like Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis when they used to tour together," declared Golden Silvers' Gwilym Gold of this year's line-up. "And everyone's waiting to find out who's going to kill it on the night!"

He added: "I hope it's gonna be quite social. I've heard a bit of Local Natives and they're almost a harmony band, aren't they? We do a lot of harmonies too, so maybe we should harmonise together?"

The tour will call at the following dates:

Oxford O2 Academy (September 26)
Sheffield University Foundry (27)
Manchester Academy 3 (28)
York The Duchess (30)
Glasgow Oran Mor (October 1)
Newcastle Northumbria University (3)
Stoke Sugarmill (4)
Liverpool University Stanley Theatre (5)
Portsmouth Wedgwood Rooms (7)
