Scissor Sisters with special guests Hurts
Friday 10th December 2010
- Doors Open:
Following their recent sold out UK tour and show-stopping Glastonbury performance, Scissor Sisters announce a highly anticipated arena tour for December 2010. Following their record breaking attendance figures in 2006 the distinctive foursome will be returning to the Metro Radio Arena on Friday 10th December 2010 as part of the Arena's 15th Birthday Celebrations.
The announcement of the live dates follow the success of recent album Night Work which has been declared a triumphant return by the critics and the pubic alike. From The Times to Heat to Pitchfork the critics praised Night Work whilst the public showed their enthusiasm by sending the album to the top end of the charts.
Jake Shears, Ana Matronic, Babydaddy and Del Marquis are renowned for their live shows. They have always wowed crowds in the UK from their early days playing small clubs to headlining arenas in 2007. The band made their return to the live stage last month when they played a series of live dates ahead of the release of their album. The Brixton show led The Guardian to say they "were a band built to last."
As well as performing songs from their new album Scissor Sisters are also expected to perform tracks from their self-titled debut album, which has sold over 2.5 million copies, and 2006's Ta-Dah album which sold 1.4 million copies in the UK alone.
