Tickets for the Coventry show will go on sale to fans at 9am on January 15, while the racecourse dates are available from 10am on January 17.
It comes ahead of the band releasing ‘Supergrass: The Strange Ones 1994-2008’ on January 24, a box set celebrating the 25th anniversary of their acclaimed debut album, ‘I Should Coco’.
Speaking to NME ahead of their comeback show at Pilton Party 2019, frontman Gaz Coombes spoke of his hope that the band’s return would “bring joy into a slightly disturbed world”.

“I remember talking to Danny about it on the phone maybe a year ago. We knew that 2020 was coming up and that would make it 25 years since the beginning and 10 years since the split. Everything aligned in a way to make it possible. The idea of getting in a room and having a play together again was something we all instinctively agreed would be a cool thing to do.
“Just to play those songs again and get in a room. That was it, really – it was no more than that. We didn’t want to look far into the distance. We just wanted to play and see what happens. It felt great.”
