GOLDFRAPP have announced a new UK tour with dates in Liverpool and Manchester.

This year has seen the sublime pop magicians cement their reputation as one of the most thrillingly inventive British live acts around.

Starting the year with unique acoustic show at London’s Union Chapel (which was, according to The Observer, “A privilege to witness”) through to spectacular main stage/headline performances at Glastonbury and Lovebox, the band have wowed audiences across the UK and Europe.

Live highlights so far include special performances at Royal Festival Hall and Royal Albert Hall complete with orchestra, choir and full band, and the Goldfrapp dancers – pole dancing lovelies and the surreal rag men – who thrilled and amused in equal measure.

Their sold-out UK tour in June culminated with an electrifying Royal Albert Hall show that saw 5,000 people joyously singing along to recent hit single Happiness.

You can see them at the University Mountford in Liverpool on October 31 and at Manchester Apollo on November 2.

Tickets priced £22.50 are available from 0151 256 5555 and 0844 477 7677 respectively and the 24-hour ticket hotline 0871 2200 260.
