Fresh from a triumphant set at this year's Download Festival, The Struts have announced a return to UK shores. The Grand Union Tour finds the Derby quartet playing a series of co-headline shows with alternative rocker Barns Courtney.  

“We are really looking forward to getting back out and bringing our best show to date alongside our long-term friend and partner in rock, Barns Courtney," says Struts frontman Luke Spiller. "It truly is going to be the hottest ticket in town." 

The UK dates begin on September 28 at the O2 Academy in Leeds, and climax with a show at London's Roundhouse on October 6. The band then head to mainline Europe for 11 more shows, beginning at La Madeleine in Brussels, Belgium on October 8 and wrapping up on October 21 at Fabrique in Milan, Italy. 

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am. The Struts and Barns Courtney will also embark on a lengthy run of North American shows next month. Full dates below.
