It's their first tour in seven years...

Gossip are set to play a series of special shows this summer.

The band have been off the road for seven years now, but will dust down their tour costumes to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their album 'Music For Men'.

An international success, the record's brand of dance-punk took their sound to the mainstream, something they want to celebrate on the upcoming tour.

Hitting Europe this summer, Gossip will play Glasgow, Manchester, and London, before playing Dublin's Love Sensation.

Beth Ditto commented: "It’ll be a sweaty, outrageous time for sure..."

The band added: “We can’t believe it’s been 10 years since the release of 'Music For Men'! We are beyond excited to reunite with our Gossip family and fans”.

“We’ve truly missed playing these songs and connecting with our amazing and inspiring crowds. It’ll be a sweaty, outrageous time for sure. Can’t wait to see y’all in Europe in July!”
