Carter USM announce new gigs for November

Band go back on decision to quit playing live

Carter USM will play two live dates in November.

The duo will perform at the Birmingham Carling Academy on November 21 and at London’s Brixton Carling Academy on November 22.

The band played two gigs at the end of 2007, claiming that they would be the last live shows they would ever play. However, the band say that the response they have received from fans since caused them to book further dates.

The band asked members of their mailing list whether they wanted the band to play further dates, and claim that 97 per cent replied saying they did.

Tickets for the two shows go on sale at 9am (GMT on Friday (February 29).
