ALTERNATIVE rock legends Skunk Anansie have announced a 25th anniversary tour – with three dates in June.

The band, whose hits include Weak and Charlie Big Potato, famously headlined the Glastonbury Festival in 1999 before going their separate ways in 2001.

They reformed in 2008 and have now announced a run of shows as the Somerset festival prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

While the majority of dates are in October and November, three are in June – 17, 19 and 20.

The festival runs from June 24 to 28 at Worthy Farm, Pilton.

Meanwhile, stadium rockers Kings of Leon – who topped the bill on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury in 2008 – have also announced a series of summer UK shows.

The band, known around the globe for hits such as Sex On Fire and Use Somebody, will play London’s Finsbury Park on June 28 (the Sunday of Glastonbury), before shows in Newcastle and Leeds on July 7 and 8 respectively.
