Courteeners have announced a headline tour this December kicking off in Preston on Monday 2nd December and culminating in a huge homecoming show at Manchester Phones 4U Arena on Friday 13th December.
Courteeners toured the UK earlier this year with a huge sold out tour which was their biggest headline tour yet and included a packed out Brixton Academy show in London. The band performed at UK festivals this year including Glastonbury, T in the Park and V Festival, which were all second headline performances, and recently performed at their own sold out two night concert at Manchester's Castlefield Bowl with support from the likes of Miles Kane and The Strypes. Courteeners lead singer Liam Fray will also be heading out on a sold out acoustic tour next month.
The Manchester show of their December tour will be the third time Courteeners have headlined Manchester Phones 4U Arena in the last 4 years and follows last December's packed out show to 17,000 people. It will round off what has been a hugely successful year for Courteeners.
Courteeners released their third top ten album 'ANNA' earlier this year which followed a two year break since the band's last album 'Falcon', which charted at #6 and was the follow-up to the bands #4 debut album 'St. Jude'. They released new single 'Van Der Graaff' in May, the follow-up to 'Lose Control' which was the first single from 'ANNA', and will be announcing the release of a new single from the album soon.
