Scissor Sisters do the Night Work for June 2010 UK/ Ireland tour

Posted: 13th May 2010

The disco-glam rock revivalists of the noughties re-emerge this summer with a brand new album and a matching UK tour.

After a three-year break, during which they recorded then shelved, scrapped then dug out again what is to become their third studio album, entitled 'Night Work' (originally slated for March'10 but now officially announced for 28th June), the NYC quintet (amicably separated from original drummer and percussionist, Paddy Boom) , will embark on the 'Night Work' tour in June. They will kick off in Glasgow on the 16th, via Dublin on the 20th, followed with two dates at London's Brixton Academy on 22nd and 23rd, Birmingham on the 25th and Manchester on the 28th. The flamboyant troupe will also make appearances at the Glastonbury and Itunes festivals, respectively on 26th June and 1st July.

'Night Work' has been described as "supersexual and sleazy" by frontman, Jake Shears, which we can gather from the suggestive promo poster… As long they do make us feel like dancing, eh! The first single 'Fire with Fire' is to be released on 21st June and you can check out a sampler via their myspace site (

Tickets for the UK leg of the 'Night Work' tour go on sale this Friday, 14th May at 10AM, and cost £30 regionally, £32.50 in London. Tickets for Dublin's Olympia theatre are now on sale, costing €44.20.
