Soul/R&B group Sade have announced plans for a UK tour, following a decade of absence.

The band, fronted by Sade Adu, formed in the eighties and have had stellar success with six studio albums. The most recent, Soldier Of Love, was released this past February and has been critically acclaimed, having secured a No.12 spot on the Irish album chart.

Sade are responsible for notable hits like 'Your Love Is King', 'Smooth Operator', 'The Sweetest Taboo' and 'By Your Side'.

The tour kicks off at the end of April 2011 in Paris, working through Europe until it reaches our shores.
The tour dates for the UK Soldier Of Love tour are as follows;

May 25 O2 Arena, Dublin
May 27 M.E.N. Arena, Manchester
May 29 LG Arena, Birmingham
May 31 The O2 Arena, London

Other shows which have also been announced include a 50-date North American tour during mid-late Summer 2011.

Tickets for the Dublin gig are on sale now, starting at €54.80, available from Ticketmaster.
