Dance legends to play ten dates in December

Orbital, who have recently returned to the fray with their first album in years, Wonky, have announced a ten date UK tour for December. Quite a while away admittedly, but then there'll no doubt be the obligatory summer festival dates (to be fair, perfect spaces for Orbital's music). And the wait will leave some time for the new record to sink in, bringing together as it does tracks that don't sound far removed at all from the duo's nineties heyday, while also featuring forays into more current concerns.

Tour dates in full run as follows. There's a whole lot of O2 Academies in there...

3rd - Bristol, O2 Academy
4th - Leicester, O2 Academy
5th - Newcastle, O2 Academy
7th - Preston, 53 Degrees
8th - Sheffield, O2 Academy
9th - Birmingham, O2 Academy
11th - Brighton, Dome
12th - Bournemouth, O2 Academy
13th - Oxford, O2 Academy
14th - Brixton, O2 Academy
