Members of the band will play their tracks live for the first time since Hollis' death earlier this year

Surviving members of Talk Talk are to play songs by the band live for the first time since the 1980s, when the band retired from playing live.

The gig at London's Royal Festival Hall will act as a tribute to frontman Mark Hollis who passed away in February of this year. They'll be joined by some as-yet unannounced special guests for the gig and will play songs from across their discography.

A Celebration of Talk Talk and Mark Hollis will take place on November 26. Tickets will go on sale to Southbank members on Thursday morning (August 1) while general sale tickets will be available to buy a day later. Find more information here.
