Mott The Hoople to reform for UK tour
The great Mott The Hoople will perform a five date tour in November with Verden Allen, Ian Hunter, Mick Ralphs and Overend Watts all on board.
Martin Chambers, from The Pretenders, will stand in for drummer Dale Griffin, who is suffering from ill health.
The five dates will take place at Birmingham Symphony Hall, Glasgow Clyde Auditorium, Newcastle City Hall, Manchester O2 Apollo and The O2 in London.
The band, formed in 1969, reformed to celebrate their legacy in 2009 with a series of high profile live dates to mark their 40th anniversary.
