Indie rock outfit to play 12 dates through November and December including, five nights in Manchester
The Courteeners have announced via their Facebook page details of the band's autumn UK tour including a five night run at Manchester's O2 Apollo.
The tour begins in Stoke at Victoria Hall on Thursday 26th November, followed by dates in Lincoln, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leicester, Wolverhampton and London, culminating in a five night run of shows at Manchester O2 Apollo from Tue 8–Sat 12 Dec. This unprecedented run is the first time any band has played so many consecutive nights at the iconic venue.
It caps a big year for the Manchester four-piece since the release of their fourth album Concrete Love last August, which went to number three in the album charts, and was followed up by a 25,000 person sell out gig at Heaton Park and a vaunted performance on the Other Stage at Glastonbury.
