Tickets only went on sale on Saturday - but already demand means there will be more shows...

BLUR have added extra dates to their already announced UK tour.

The band follow up their Carling Weekend headline shows with a jaunt round the country, calling at smaller venues than the band would normally play. Since the initial batch of dates were announced, extra shows have been added in Glasgow, Wolverhampton, Manchester and London.

The shows are the band’s first

regional UK dates since the Singles Night Tour of December 1999. They did play five nights at the London Astoria in May to launch their new album ‘Think Tank’.

A new single, ‘Good Song’, will be released prior to the dates on October 6. It’s the third track to be lifted from ‘Think Tank’ after ‘Out Of Time’ and ‘Crazy Beat”s earlier chart success.

The revised dates are at:

Glasgow Barrowlands (November (20/21)

Liverpool Royal Court (24)

Wolverhampton Civic Hall (25/26)

Manchester Apollo (28/29)

London Brixton Academy (December 2/3/4)

Dublin Olympia (7/8)

Brighton Centre (11)

Bournemouth BIC (12)
