Courtney Love is headed to the UK for a number of gigs.
The former Hole frontwoman is set to perform eight solo shows in May, with special guest White Miles supporting her.
The 49-year-old announced the dates on Facebook, writing: "UK, Thanks for your patience! Here we go!!!"
The tour will kick off with two shows at London's Shepherds Bush Empire on May 11 and 12, followed by gigs in Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol before closing in Nottingham on May 20.
The live dates mark Courtney's first British shows since 2010.
The singer-actress has reportedly recorded eight songs for her new solo album, tentatively titled Died Blonde - her first solo material since 2004's America's Sweetheart.
She has also previously hinted there could be a Hole reunion in 2014, after she posted photos of herself with the group's lead guitarist Eric Erlandson on Facebook and Twitter, with the caption: "And this just happened... 2014 going to be a very interesting year."
