Family pop group The Corrs have announced dates for a tour after returning to the stage following a 10 year hiatus.

The Irish band played London's Hyde Park on Sunday and have quickly followed it up with plans to play eight concerts next year across the UK and Ireland.

Promoters revealed lead singer Andrea, sisters Sharon and Caroline and brother Jim will kick off the revival in Birmingham on January 19 followed by shows in Cardiff, Liverpool, London and Manchester before heading to Glasgow and then home to Ireland for a show in Dublin and the last night in Belfast.

The group, from Dundalk, Co Louth, have sold more than 30 million albums since their 1995 debut Forgiven Not Forgotten.

Their return to the stage coincides with the release of a new album White Light on November 27 which is their first since 2004.
