NME Godlike genius and Q legend Ian Brown has announced details of a major UK winter tour.

He will hit the road in late November for a 16-date series of shows including the Birmingham O2 Academy on Friday, December 18.

Tickets go on sale this week and can be bought online at www.gigsandtours.com or via 0871 2200 260 or 0844 826 2826.

The shows will be the first following the release of Brown’s sixth studio album, My Way, which is due out this month.

The bulk of the album’s 12 tracks were co-written with long time collaborator Dave McCracken at London's Battery Studios, where Brown and the Stone Roses recorded their seminal debut 20 years before.

Apart from appearing as a special guest on the main stage at the Reading and Leeds festival he also recently played a show in Wolverhampton.
