Story by Jack Foley

THE Feeling have announced their final tour until at least 2018.

After recently wowing 250,000 people across Europe’s arenas as the hand-picked main support act for Jeff Lynne’s ELO, the band have confirmed six October dates in Bristol, Brighton, Wolverhampton, Milton Keynes and Manchester, before a tour finale at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

The band plan to play hits from across their catalogue, from 2006’s BRIT-nominated, Ivor Novello winning Twelve Stops And Home right up to this year’s acclaimed self-titled sixth album (praised by Mojo as “another tranche of top tunes”).

Says frontman Dan Gillespie Sells: “We’re not splitting up, but after ten incredible years of doing this non-stop, we feel like now is a good moment to take a break and spend some time concentrating on our other projects. We want to make this tour a celebration of everything we’ve achieved so far. I really can’t wait.”

The band will also headline the legendary Avalon Stage at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The UK tour dates are (all October 2016)

12 – Norwich Waterfront
13 – Bristol The Fleece
14 – Brighton Concorde 2
16 – Wolverhampton Slade Rooms
17 – Milton Keynes The Stables
19 – Manchester Club Academy
20 – London Shepherd’s Bush Empire

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, June 10.
