Pulp have announced details of a one-off Christmas homecoming show.

It will be the band's first UK date since a performance at London's Royal Albert Hall in March. After reuniting last year, Pulp are currently on a brief European festival tour, which will conclude with an appearance at Fiera della Musica in Italy on Friday (July 13).

Earlier today (July 10), the reunited five-piece posted the date and venue of the Sheffield show on their Twitter page, writing:




Meanwhile, a series of cryptic messages have appeared on the band's official website. They tease: "The day that (almost) never happened... A journey back to where it all began... May the circle be unbroken - tissues optional... Sheffield 8 December 2012."

Last month (June), Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker spoke to NME and revealed that the band had yet to decide on whether to record new material. "It's a hard one. We haven't been in the studio or anything. I don't know what will happen in the future," he said.
