The Slow Readers Club have confirmed a run of headline shows for December

The tour includes two hometown shows in Manchester.

Manchester four-piece The Slow Readers Club have announced a run of headline shows for December.

The band will perform nights in London, Wolverhampton, Manchester – where they’ll play two hometown shows – and Glasgow.

“We wanted to end the year with something special and The Ritz is one of those venues for us,” explains singer Aaron Starkie. “We’re aware that our last home town show at Gorilla sold out in 3 minutes and we didn’t want to potentially try people’s patience when buying tickets with another intimate show, even though the atmosphere was off the scale.

“Two nights at the Ritz still allows for that intimacy and atmosphere but also means there are more tickets available so it just made complete sense to us. We know it will be amazing and we can’t wait. The London show is a half the size of the last one, so we’re expecting that to be a bit mental, similar to Gorilla earlier in the year. We love those kind of gigs… Also we might throw in a couple of new tracks.”

The details are:

17 The Dome, London
18 Slade Rooms, Wolverhampton
19 The Ritz, Manchester
20 The Ritz, Manchester
21 The Garage, Glasgow

Tickets go on sale from 10am on Friday 14th June.
