Scouting For Girls announce UK tour (2010)

Scouting For Girls

Story by Jack Foley

SCOUTING For Girls have announced details of a full UK and Irish Spring tour, including a night at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

The British pop band will head out on a 22-date tour in April to coincide with the release of their second album, Everybody Wants To Be On TV, on April 12.

Frontman Roy Stride said: “Having spent the past year locked in the studio, we cannot wait to get out there and do what we do best. We are so excited about this tour – it should be our greatest yet.

“We’ve been practicing hard since Christmas and have even drafted in a new musician to create an even bigger sound live. We think the new songs sound immense and of course we’ll play plenty of the old favourites, with a few surprises too!”

Tickets have been on sale to Wolfcub members through the band’s official website, www.scoutingforgirls.co.uk since February 1, and are on general sale from 9am on February 5.

Tickets for all shows will be £22.50, and £24.50 for London.

Scouting For Girls release new single This Ain’t A Love Song on March 29 through Epic Records.
