The new live dates will celebrate a decade since the release of the Leeds band's debut album, which went platinum in the UK
The Leeds five-piece will set out on the road in October to celebrate the milestone – which fell on Sunday (May 28) – with the band set to honour the success of the likes of ‘I Found Out’, ‘Romantic Type’ and ‘Take Her Back’ at the anniversary shows.
Along with those singles, all 12 tracks from ‘Wait For Me’ will be played in full on every night of the tour. The newly-announced gigs follow the special re-release of ‘Wait For Me’ on double 12″ vinyl and digital format (with both including additional B-sides and previously unheard tracks), which are both out now via Dance to the Radio.
Kicking off with a show at Manchester’s Academy on October 19, the Pigeon Detectives’ tour will continue into November before rounding off at Leeds’ O2 Academy on November 3. Support will come from Little Comets, with tickets set to go on sale at 9am on Friday (June 2) from this link.
