Scissor Sisters to follow new album with 2012 UK dates - tickets Friday 16th March
It's been eight years since the Scissor Sisters burst onto the scene in a riot of colour, filthy innuendo and staggeringly catchy pop. Floyd aficionados moaned about the cover of Comfortably Numb, the right-wing press recoiled at Jake Shears' flaunted sexuality and everyone nodded along to some of the most memorable radio hits of the decade.
The eponymous debut record turned seven-times Platinum in the UK, topping the charts and delivering five Top 20 singles. The UK media, by and large, welcomed Shears, Ana Matronic and co with open arms and these islands remain the Scissor Sisters' most fertile hunting grounds.
Follow-up album, 2006's Ta-Dah, also reached No 1 here; with the record's lead single I Don't Feel Like Dancin' giving the band their first No 1 single. In fact, it topped the charts all across Europe where clubland lapped up Scissor Sisters' infectious disco pop.
The band's fourth album, Magic Hour, is released on 28th May, preceded by the release of the second track from the record, Only the Horses, on 20th May. After a couple of years away, the Grammy and BRIT winners are set to take the airwaves by storm once again and will be giving the new material a workout with two London dates in the weeks before Magic Hour is released.
The Scissor Sisters play back-to-back gigs at the Shepherds Bush Empire on 16th and 17th May 2012. We will have tickets available for both dates when they go on sale at 9am on Friday 16th March priced £32.50.
There can be little question that these dates will sell very quickly, so get on it.
