These are much smaller shows than fans are used to.

The trio of shows follows the announcement of a comeback single, called 'King', and a new album.

The new album, 'Dance Fever', will be their fifth.

Put these dates in your diary, as the band will be playing Newcastle’s O2 City Hall (April 15), Blackburn’s King George’s Hall (16) and London’s Theatre Royal (19).

The band “will play music from the new album for the first time, along with some favourites from previous albums”.

These gigs will be their first UK live appearances since 2019.

Want to go? You can access a pre-sale for tickets tomorrow (March 16) at 9am by pre-ordering ‘Dance Fever’ from F+TM’s official website.

Be quick though, you have to order before 8pm tonight (March 15).

If you don't make it, then tickets go on general sale this Thursday (March 17) at 9am GMT.

You can buy them here.

Buying a ticket will help charities too, as one pound from each ticket sold will be donated to Choose Love.

The organisation supports refugees and displaced people globally.

Three tracks have been released from 'Dance Fever' so far, including the aforementioned ‘King’, ‘Heaven Is Here’ and most recently ‘My Love’.

Florence Welch has called the album “a fairytale in 14 songs”.

The album was recorded in London throughout the pandemic as Welch anticipated the return of clubs, live music and dancing at festivals.

As well as these intimate shows, the band will play a series of festivals in Europe over the summer.
