Scissor Sisters announce tour of UK and America
The New York group are to perform shows in both the UK and US, with the American performances set to kick off first.
Their DJ Sammy Jo will provide the warm up during the stateside concerts, although it is yet to be announced who will be playing with them when they hit the UK.
Vocalist Jake Shears told their website: "It's going to be our best tour ever and we can't wait to see our fans! It's been too long".
American fans can catch the performances in August and September, giving the band plenty of opportunity to perfect their material from the new album Night Work before they hit the UK in December.
The first show will take place in Birmingham on December 3rd before taking in cities including Cardiff and Manchester, finishing in London on December 15th.
