Three UK dates confirmed...

Phoenix have announced plans for a trio of UK shows.

Phoenix are now, unequivocally, a big deal. Recent album 'Bankrupt!' was an international hit, winning some of the finest reviews of the band's career.

Since then, the band have rarely been out of the press with a series of live shows which have unveiled a renewed sense of muscle. Sadly, Phoenix were forced to drop out of London's iTunes festival last month, but since then have arranged plans for a new set of European shows.

Taking place early next year, the dates include three UK concerts. Phoenix are set to play Glasgow venue the Barrowlands on February 10th, before hitting Manchester Academy.

The French group will then play London's O2 Academy Brixton on February 12th, ending their short stay in Blighty. Check out the video for 'Trying To Be Cool' below.

Phoenix are set to play the following shows:

10 Glasgow Barrowland
11 Manchester Academy
12 London O2 Brixton Academy
