The Vines set for UK return
The Vines are to make their long awaited live return to the UK with their first shows in two years.

The Aussie rockers, who haven't performed on British shores since singer Craig Nicholls was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in 2004, have been confirmed for the NME/Radio 1 stage at the Carling Weekend Reading and Leeds Festivals on August 25-26 - the band's first appearance at the three day event since 2002.

Prior to that, the band will be appearing for a warm up date at Nottingham's Rescue Rooms on August 24 before they wrap up their whirlwind jaunt at the London Forum on August 29.

As previously reported, the band recently made their first festival appearance in 18 months at Byron Bay's Splendour On The Grass last Saturday (July 22) after making their live return at Sydney's Annandale Hotel last week.

The Vines will play:

Nottingham Rescue Rooms (August 24)
Carling Weekend: Reading Festival (25)
Saturday August 26th Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival (26)
London Forum (29)

Tickets for their UK shows are on sale now. For availability go to NME.COM/Gigs.

The Vines release new single 'Don't Listen To The Radio' on September 25.
