The Courteeners announce two hometown December shows – ticket details
Liam Fray and the boys will play two winter gigs in Manchester
The band, who are currently working on the follow-up to their 2010 second album 'Falcon', will play Manchester's O2 Apollo on December 8 and 9.
The Courteeners played a huge hometown show in Manchester's Evening News Arena in December last year, but have opted for "the more intimate surroundings of the Apollo", according to their official Facebook page Facebook.com/thecourteeners.
The band have enjoyed a relatively low-key year thus far, playing only a handful of headline shows along with appearances at Isle Of Wight Festival and V Festival. They are expected to release the follow-up to 'Falcon' next year.
Tickets go onsale on Friday (September 9) at 9am (BST). To check the availability of The Courteeners tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
