The band warm up for their appearance at the Ross-On-Wye festival...

THE BLUETONES are to play four UK live shows in August, to warm-up for their appearance at the ROSS-ON-WYE festival later that month.

The Bluetones, who have been out of the UK spotlight for most of this year, recently confirmed an appearance at the Ross-On-Wye Festival for August 25.

Now, as a warm-up for the date, the band will play four low-key UK shows, at: Edinburgh Liquid Rooms (August 9)

Glasgow King Tuts (10)

Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms (23)

Oxford Zodiac (24)

Ticket details will be announced in the coming days.
