Sunday 1st December - Manchester Arena
Monday 2nd December - Glasgow The Hydro Arena
Tuesday 3rd December - Birmingham NIA
Thursday 5th December - London Wembley Arena
Friday 6th December - Cardiff Motorpoint Arena
Exclusive presale and VIP packages are available from 9am on Wednesday 19th June with general on sale starting 9am on Friday 21st June. Tickets for the shows cost o25 and are available online at www.ticketmaster.co.uk or www.livenation.co.uk
Matt Tuck, vocalist/guitars, said: "The boys and I are excited to announce that we will be once again crushing arenas all over the UK this December. In 2010 we got our first taste of headlining arenas and it was mind blowing, this time around it's gonna be louder, crazier and we'll be bringing more pyro than ever!! Make sure you get your tickets and be part of THE tour of 2013, see ya there, ROCK!"
The UK tour will also see Bullet supported by two of the hottest properties in UK rock, Asking Alexandria and Young Guns.
Asking Alexandria said: "It's been a dream of ours to tour arenas around the UK for a long time and the fact that it's happening with a bunch of cool guys that like to drink as much as we do is fucking brilliant. Rock on, drink on, game on!"
Young Guns said: "We're honoured to have been asked to support Bullet For My Valentine on their upcoming UK arena run. Having just spent 2 months with them in the USA we know firsthand how great they are live and we're excited to see them bring it on stages as big as these are. As for us, these are going to be some of the largest shows we've ever played and we can't wait to get out there! We'll be fresh out of the studio and desperate to get back out there again, so see you all in December!"
Temper Temper was once again another huge international hit for Bullet For My Valentine, charting at #11 in the UK as well as #13 in America, plus Top 10 placings in Germany, Australia, Japan, Canada, Switzerland, Austria and Finland.
