Lightyear announce June reunion tour

Lightyear have announced a six-date reunion UK tour for June.

The punk seven-piece will be celebrating their 15 year career at shows in Bristol, Nottingham, Newcastle, Manchester, Brighton and London on a tour supported by Big Cheese magazine. Commenting on the shows, vocalist Chas Palmer-Williams said: "We know this might raise a few chuckles. It's been 15 years since Lightyear began. We started it simply to have fun. We stopped it because it became not fun. We wanted to stay friends, but we ended up not even seeing each other really. We want to hang out with each other again, so we are doing six dates in June! It would be wicked to see old and new friends."

Tickets are on sale now, with full details as follows:
