Scottish rockers The Beta Band are bidding farewell to their fans with a final UK tour - after eight years together.

The BROKE/WON foursome, comprising of Steve Mason, RICHARD GREENTREE, JOHN MacLEAN and ROBIN JONES, announced last month (02AUG04) they were going their separate ways on a high, after their last album HEROES TO ZEROS gave them their best-selling disc ever earlier this year (04).

The band blamed their lack of commercial success on the split, despite three of their albums receiving widespread critical acclaim.

The tour will start in their Scottish hometown, Glasgow, on 12 November (04). They will then move on to 14 other British venues before wrapping their tour at London's Shepherds Bush Empire on 29 November.
