What's the bets Noel Gallagher joins the band onstage at one or two of the shows? And - hurrah! - Kate Hudson might well be cheering on her hubby...

THE BLACK CROWES have confirmed a series of UK shows for the summer.

The band, who are due to start their ‘Tour Of Brotherly Love’ with Oasis in Las Vegas this evening (May 11), will play their first UK tour in two years in July.

In addition to their previously announced Stereophonics support slots at Donington Park (July 14) and Cardiff Millennium Stadium (21), the band will play:

Wolverhampton Civic Centre (July 16)

Glasgow Barrowlands (17)

Southampton Guildhall (19)

London Brixton Academy (20)

The band have also confirmed a series of shows across Europe in support of Neil Young and AC/DC. The band’s new album, ‘Lions’ was released last Monday (May 7) via V2, and a new single, ‘Soul Singing’ is likely to coicide with the UK dates.
