AS THE Ting Tings prepare to embark on their fully sold out UK tour this Saturday, the band have announced a whole new set of shows in 2009.

As demand for the Autumn tour exceeded all expectations, The Tings Tings are to play a further seven dates early next year, kicking off at the Glasgow Academy at the end of February and culminating in a triumphant show at Brixton Academy on March 6, 2009.

The Salford-based duo recently won the Best UK Video for Shut Up And Let Me Go at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, in addition to being invited to play at the ceremony in LA a couple of weeks ago.

Tickets go on general release on Friday, September 19 at 10am. The dates are (all February and March 2009):

25 – Glasgow Academy
26 – Manchester Apollo

1 – Leeds Academy
2 – Wolverhampton Civic Hall
3 – Portsmouth Guildhall
5 – Swindon Oasis Centre
6 – London Brixton Academy

The Ting Tings’ new single, Be The One, is released on October 13, 2008.
