A Perfect Circle announce huge UK shows

A Perfect Circle have announced details of a winter UK tour – including a show at the SSE Arena in Wembley. Full dates and ticket details are below.

Hitting the road in support of ‘Eat The Elephant’, their first new album in 14 years, the alt-rock supergroup will be following up their summer of UK dates with winter gigs in Glasgow, Manchester and London this December.

These shows will see Greg Edwards from Failure and Autolux filling in for guitarist James Iha in the supergroup, as he will be busy touring as part of the reunion line-up of Smashing Pumpkins.


A Perfect Circle’s full upcoming UK tour dates are below. Tickets are on sale from 10am on Wednesday April 25 and will be available here.

Tuesday 12 – MANCHESTER O2 Apollo
Wednesday 13 – LONDON O2 Academy Brixton
Thursday 14 – LONDON O2 Academy Brixton
Sunday 2 – GLASGOW O2 Academy Glasgow
Monday 3 – MANCHESTER Victoria Warehouse
Wednesday 5 – LONDON SSE Arena Wembley

The group’s last album ‘Emotive‘ was released 14 years ago and spawned the singles ‘Counting Bodies Like Sheep’, ‘Imagine’ and ‘Passive’.

Meanwhile, Smashing Pumpkins recently completed work on new material – with three EPs produced by Rick Rubin due for release next month.


The ‘classic’ line-up will then be heading out on tour, however original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky will not be taking part as a feud between her and frontman Billy Corgan continues to gather momentum.

It is hoped that Iha sitting out the A Perfect Circle winter dates means that the Pumpkins will shortly announced UK and European shows for the winter.
