THE LEMONHEADS are rumoured to be playing their first shows together in seven years.

According to various website sources, Evan Dando's legendary grunge-pop band have reformed to play a series of dates in South America this May - their first shows since they split up shortly after playing Reading Festival in 1997.

"After more than seven years in hiatus one of the most influential rock bands of the early nineties, The Lemonheads, recently announced a string of dates in South America!! As far as we know these are the only confirmed Lemonheads shows to date," reports Punk.BZ website.

However Evan Dando's UK press office said they had not heard the news and could only confirm that Dando would play a string of solo shows in the US beginning later this month.
