THE Kooks have announced a UK arena tour for November, including a date at London’s SSE Arena, Wembley.

The announcement follows the release of their new single Be Who You Are, one of two new tracks on their forthcoming Best Of… So Far album, which is released on May 19 on Virgin EMI Records.

Pre-sale for the arena tour starts at 9am on May 10, with tickets on general sale from 9am on May 12.

Demand for The Kooks is higher than it’s ever been, with a whole new generation of music lovers discovering their music. The band are currently wrapping up the UK leg of an extensive Best Of tour, which sold out within just a few days upon its announcement last year.

Following a huge sold out show at London’s Alexandra Palace on May 13, the band will head to Europe for further shows, followed by a show with Arcade Fire in Belfast in June.

Of the band’s journey so far, lead singer Luke says: “It’s been the greatest pleasure to work, travel, fight, hate and love the best and most talented people I’ve met in my life. It’s the greatest job in the world and we don’t intend to stop any time soon.”

The Kooks will play the following UK live dates in November and December 2017

23 – Leeds, First Direct Arena
24 – Nottingham, Motorpoint Arena
25 – Brighton Centre
26 – Cardiff, Motorpoint Arena
30 – Blackpool, Empress Ballroom

2 – London, The SSE Arena, Wembley

The Kooks’ Best Of… So Far album will be released on May 19 on Virgin EMI Records.
