Says Mark: ‘My songs are made to be performed live. I love the whole process of writing them alone and then recording them with the band, but ultimately the best part is playing them to an audience live. I enjoy the whole circus, travelling from town to town and interacting with this group of players is a total pleasure. I’m really looking forward to it.’

The UK dates in May are:

18th – Leeds, First Direct Arena
19th – Newcastle, Metro Radio Arena
21st – London, Royal Albert Hall
22nd – London, Royal Albert Hall
26th – Glasgow, SSE Hydro
28th – London, O2 Arena
29th – Manchester, Arena
30th – Birmingham, Genting Arena, soon to be renamed Resorts World Arena

Tickets for the two new shows go on sale at 9am on Friday 8th February 2019.
