The Courteeners have announced a full UK winter tour, including a gig at Liverpool’s Echo Arena.

Liam Fray returns to Liverpool for the first time since his solo gig last year, this time with the backing of his full band who are reportedly working on a sixth studio album, a follow up to Mapping The Rendezvous in 2016.

The Manchester band will be supported at all but one date by Scottish sensation Gerry Cinnamon, who blew away Liverpool O2 Academy earlier this year.

Also on the bill is GIT Award One To Watch Zuzu, who recently supported Blossoms and Peace marking her rise out of Merseyside.
