Hawkwind have announced that they’ve expanded their upcoming orchestral tour.

They previously confirmed they’d play at the London Palladium on November 4 under the In Search Of Utopia – Infinity And Beyond banner with an orchestra.

The score for the shows will be produced by Mike Batt, with the run now taking in dates in Leeds, Salford, Gateshead, Bath and Birmingham, with an extra show at London’s Palladium also confirmed.

Tickets will go on general sale on Friday, February 2. Find a full list of Hawkwind’s shows below.
