“We are incredibly excited to announce news of The Wild Dreams Tour and to finally get back performing to all of our fans at the UK’s and Ireland’s biggest venues,” they said.

“After the last 18 months, this tour means more to us than any that we’ve ever done before. It will be a massive celebration and will bring us closer to our fans than ever before. We’re planning some spectacular shows which will include all of our greatest hits and some special surprises.”

The group released their latest single, 'Starlight', in October. Their 12th studio album ‘Wild Dreams’ is set to be released on November 26th. The record which includes 11 brand new songs was written and recorded over an 18 month period.
