The Courteeners announce UK tour

Tour includes five consecutive nights in Manchester

The Courteeners have announced a string of UK shows to take place this November and December.

The tour will include five consecutive nights at Manchester’s O2 Apollo, as well as shows in Stoke, Lincoln, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leicester, Wolverhampton and London. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Wednesday, August 26.

The band played a sold out gig at Manchester’s Heaton Park in June, with 25,000 people attending the hometown event. The event sold out in under an hour when it was announced and marked the biggest show of their career to date.
