Band to revisit debut album

Evergreen Britpop group The Bluetones have been forced to add extra tour dates due to astonishing fan demand.

Believe it or not, but at one time The Bluetones were one of the biggest acts in the UK. Capable of knocking Oasis off the top spot in the albums chart, the band's brand of breezy 60s influenced pop spawned numerous hit singles including indie disco classic 'Marblehead Johnson'.

The band recently re-released their 1996 debut album 'Expecting To Fly', and took off around the country for a series of very special live dates. A nostalgia based event, perhaps, but they're only giving the people what they want.

The tour was a huge success and included one of the last ever gigs to take place at the London Astoria. During the show sing er Mark Morriss joked about doing more shows based on classic albums. "We're really into this classic album lark," he joked with the crowd. "Next time we might try 'The Dark Side Of The Moon'!"

The Bluetones will play:

February
28 Brighton Concorde 2

March
1 Oxford Zodiac
2 Cardiff The Point
4 Glasgow QMU
6 London ULU
7 Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall
8 Lancester Sugarhouse
