Rachel from the band notes: “It’s not often you get the chance to tour again so quickly – especially not in the same country. It’s great that fans who couldn’t get tickets for this tour get another chance to see us cos usually you’d have to wait for ages until the next tour. It’s great that there isn’t a huge gap between the two – we’re already in shape.”
