The Divine Comedy have announced a mammoth-sized tour for 2022 in support of their new Best Of album. Tickets for the tour go on sale at 10am on Friday 10 September.

Entitled Charmed Life – The Best Of The Divine Comedy, the album brings together 24 hit singles and fan favourites from the band's three-decade career, including 'National Express', 'Something For The Weekend', 'Songs Of Love', 'Our Mutual Friend', 'A Lady Of A Certain Age', 'To The Rescue' and 'Norman And Norma'.

The album will be released on Friday 4 February, while tour begins in April. Speaking of the tour, singer Neil Hannon says, 'I am so looking forward to playing live again. The last couple of years have been a reminder of how much it means to me personally. It really is my favourite thing.

'And it seems fitting that we'll be coming back with a greatest hits set. You know, in case everyone's forgotten who I am and what we do!'
