The xx have announced a full UK tour for December.

The trio, who released their much anticipated second album 'Coexist' on September 10, will play five shows at the end of this year in support of the album.

The tour begins at Brighton's Dome on December 6 and ends on December 16 when the band play London's O2 Academy Brixton. The xx will also play shows in Wolverhampton, Bristol and Newcastle as part of the tour.

Earlier this month, it emerged that the band's vocalist Oliver Sim has written a song for Beyonce. He said that he has written a track which isn't right for The xx, but which he hopes Beyonce would like to record "if he can work up the courage to ask".

Sim told Q that he went for dinner with the pop legend around the time of BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend in June. He said: "We all went for dinner. There may have been a husband of hers there. I always had a lot of things I wanted to say to her and I completely choked. Beyonce is very special. I think the super-pop thing that supposedly died with Michael Jackson is still there, with her. I saw her at Glastonbury and I may have shed a tear."

The xx will play:

Brighton Dome (December 6)
O2 Academy Newcastle (11)
Wolverhampton Civic Hall (12)
Bristol Colston Hall (14)
O2 Academy Brixton (16)


Tickets go onsale on Friday (September 21) at 9am (BST).
