Jarvis Cocker - Pulp To Tour?

Jarvis Cocker has suggested Pulp will tour again.

The Britpop group - who reunited last year after splitting in 2002 - took to the stage as London's Royal Albert Hall on Saturday (31.03.12) as part of the annual Teenage Cancer Trust charity concert series and the frontman hinted they will be back on the road for further live dates in the near future.

After asking the crowd to hold aloft lights they were given as they entered the venue during 'This Is Hardcore', he later quipped: ''I'd like to hire you all for our next tour because I like what you did with the lights. I'd take you all on, there'll be application forms on the way out.''

As well as performing a selection of their biggest hits - including 'Do You Remember The First Time?', 'Common People' and 'Disco 2000' - Pulp also treated the crowds to a string of rareties, including 1983 single 'My Lighthouse'.

Jarvis explained about how the song featured his sister Saskia and her school friend Jill Talbot on backing vocals, before inviting them out to sing on the track.

As the crowd applauded, he joked: ''Dunno what you're clapping for, nobody bought it.''

Other guests who joined the band on stage included support act Cat's Eyes orchestral ensemble and the group's former guitarist Richard Hawley, who came on to perform 'Like A Friend' and remained for the rest of the set.
