Chart-toppers Florence + the Machine have celebrated their third successive No 1 album by announcing a UK arena tour.

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful went straight to the top of the album charts when it was released last week.

It sold more than the rest of the Top 5 combined, and topped the chart in 24 other countries.

The record is also set to give flame-haired singer Florence Welch and her band their first No 1 US album.

The indie-rock band have announced their first full UK tour in more than three years.

September will see them embark on 12 dates, including one at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on Tuesday, September 15.

The tour will follow a big summer festival season for Florence + the Machine, who are set to play big slots at Glastonbury, Splendour In The Grass and Electric Picnic among others.

Tickets for the Newcastle show, priced from £35 plus the usual fees, go on sale from 9am on Friday from the box office or the 24-hour hotline (0844) 493 6666.
