The Manchester band, who are joined by Everything Everything and Darwin Deez on the tour, explained: “The Hurts live show is one of theatre, drama, excitement and general good times.”

Singer Theo Hutchcraft added: “We’d like to make people embrace their emotions and not be afraid and also give something that’s different from five boys next door playing the guitar, because that’s boring, and we can do that using the two of us.”
