Muse have confirmed a number of UK stadium dates for 2013.

The band, who released new album 'The 2nd Law' in October, will play four shows in the UK, starting in Coventry on May 22 before two shows at London's Emirates Stadium, home to Arsenal FC, on May 25 and 26. The short jaunt will end in Manchester on June 1.

Tickets for all dates go on sale on Friday, November 23 at 9.30am. Muse will play:

Coventry, Ricoh Arena - May 22
London, Emirates Stadium - (25, 26)
Manchester, Etihad Stadium - June 1


Speaking about the band's current world tour, which has already passed through UK arenas, singer Matt Bellamy told CBS Local, "I think it's going to be our best tour so far. It’s like our version of [Pink Floyd’s 1979 double album and tour] 'The Wall'."

The ambitious production includes an upside down pyramid structure, which is full of video screens. "Throughout the gig, it gradually comes down and consumes the band. So we end up eaten up by this pyramid thing, which is all very symbolic, of course. We blast out of it and escape."
