Scissor Sisters

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING their recent sold out UK tour and show-stopping Glastonbury performance, Scissor Sisters have announced an arena tour for December 2010.

The announcement of the live dates follow the success of recent album Night Work, which has been declared a triumphant return by the critics and the pubic alike.

From The Times to Heat to Pitchfork the critics praised Night Work while the public showed their enthusiasm by sending the album to the the top end of the charts.

Jake Shears, Ana Matronic, Babydaddy and Del Marquis are renowned for their live shows. They have always wowed crowds in the UK from their early days playing small clubs to headlining arenas in 2007.

The band made their return to the live stage last month when they played a series of live dates ahead of the release of their album. The Brixton show led The Guardian to say they “were a band built to last”.

As well as performing songs from their new album Scissor Sisters are also expected to perform tracks from their self-titled debut album, which has sold over 2.5 million copies, and 2006’s Ta-Dah album, which sold 1.4 million copies in the UK alone.

The full list of dates are (all December 2010):

3 – Birmingham LG Arena
6 – Cardiff Arena
8 – Glasgow SECC
10 – Newcastle Arena
11 – Manchester MEN Arena
12 – Brighton Centre
14 – Nottingham Arena
15 – London 02 Arena

Tickets are £30 and £32.50 in London and they go on sale on Friday, July 9 at 10am.
