The tour will kick off in Liverpool on 15 September and head to the likes of Newcastle, Birmingham, Cardiff and London’s Royal Albert Hall.

They’ll also visit venues in Ireland, with dates planned for Dublin and Belfast, before finishing up in their native with shows in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.

It’s part of the All The Old 45s Tour which will see them dig out “the Top 10s, the favourites, the sing-a-long rarities”.

The group will perform two sets, with no support. The first half will be an intimate acoustic show, and then they’ll go electric for a trip across their hits.

Fans can expect to the hear the likes of their debut single, “Dignity”, as well as “Real Gone Kid”, “Your Town”, “Fergus Sings the Blues” and “Wages Day”.

“Yes, we intend to play all – or nearly all – the old 45s, but we also want the first half of the evening to be an intimate acoustic performance, the band gathered round the piano with acoustic guitars and whatever Dougie decides to hit,” said frontman Ricky Ross.

He added: “We’ll play some album tracks and reinterpret a few favourites from the back catalogue.”
