Blue - Blue announce UK tour

Blue have announced a UK tour.

The 'One Love' hitmakers will hit the road in October for a seven date arena tour of some of Britain's best venues, following on from their sold out show at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire in London on May 3.

The boys - Antony Costa, Simon Webbe, Duncan James and Lee Ryan - have reunited for their first album in ten years, 'Roulette', the first since 2003's 'Guilty', which preceded their split.

Blue teamed up with producer RedOne - who has worked with the likes of Lady Gaga and JLo - and think the finished product boasts a more mature sound, perfect for listening to in the bedroom.

Simon exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''Our voices have matured, we've matured, you can hear it on the record, there's a lot of up tempo tracks on there. Obviously there's a balance - and there's a few sex tracks on there too. You know, it's very naughty!''

The boys officially reformed in 2009, but have had little exposure in their native Britain and admit they are nervous about making a big comeback.

Asked whether they could compete with the younger generation of boybands, Simon said: ''I think there's enough room for both. I mean it's all about the music at the end of the day. You shouldn't really be watching anybody else.

''We love what those One Direction boys are doing, and we respect The Wanted as well because they haven't come from the same thing, the conveyor belt like the old boys.

''We're an international band, it's not just about the UK for us. You know, we've sold out in Italy, sold out in Germany, Scandinavia, but not really much on home soil. And this is what makes it really nerve-racking about this album.''

Blue's concert dates are as follows:

May 3 - Shepherd's Bush Empire - Sold Out

October 14 - Norwich UEA

October 15 - Manchester Academy

October 17 - O2 Academy Newcastle

October 18 - O2 Academy Leeds

October 19 - O2 Academy Glasgow

October 21 - Birmingham Institute

October 22 - Hammersmith Apollo
