Shine a light: Marina and the Diamonds announces UK & Ireland Neon Nature tour

DIY’s April cover star has confirmed plans for a ten-date headline run later this year.

Marina and the Diamonds has announced her first set of UK and Ireland live shows since her tiny DIY Presents… appearance at Hackney’s Oslo earlier this year.

Our April cover star has spent the better half of 2015 on the road over in the US, but now she’s planning to bring her full Neon Nature tour back to her home turf when she heads out on the road this November and December. She’ll plan ten shows, including stops in Bournemouth, Manchester, Newcastle, Cardiff and Dublin. The tour will then draw to a close to London’s Palladium, on 6th December.

Tickets for the ‘FROOT’ star’s tour go on sale this Friday (10th July) at 9am. Marina has also promised that an array of European shows are due to follow…

Her UK and Ireland touring plans are as follows.

20 Corn Exchange, Cambridge
21 O2 Academy, Bournemouth
23 The Ritz, Manchester
24 O2 Academy, Newcastle
25 O2 ABC, Glasgow
27 The Institute, Birmingham
28 Great Hall, Cardiff

01 The Limelight, Belfast
02 Academy, Dublin
06 Palladium, London
