The Bluetones are set to play debut album 'Expecting To Fly' live in full again due to fan demand.

The band mounted a successful tour before Christmas where they played the 1996 UK Number One record and associated tracks live, including one of the final gigs at the London Astoria.

Now the band have confirmed they are hitting the road to do it again.

During the London show, frontman Mark Morriss joked with the crowd they were up for more shows based around famous records.

"We're really into this classic album lark," he said onstage. "Next time we might try 'The Dark Side Of The Moon'!"

The Bluetones will play:

Brighton Concorde 2 (February 28)
Oxford Zodiac (March 1)
Cardiff The Point (2)
Glasgow QMU (4)
London ULU (6)
Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall (7)
Lancaster Sugarhouse (8)
