NME’s new music portion Radar has announced a series of special live dates, in partnership with sickly “stimulation drink” Emerge. Much-lauded Anglo-Italian songstress Anna Calvi is to headline the UK-wide tour, with LA indie quintet Grouplove in support.

NME editor Krissi Murison can barely contain her sugar-induced excitement when she says that “the Radar Tour has built an amazing reputation for breaking some of the world’s most important new artists. Having seen Anna recently support Mumford & Sons at their special NME Awards show, we are really excited about her being on board to headline. I can’t wait”.

The dates will be as follows:

1 May: Portsmouth, Wedgwood Rooms
2 May: Bristol, Thekla
3 May: Nottingham, Rescue Rooms
5 May: York Fibbers
6 May: Hull University
7 May: Manchester, Academy 3
9 May: Glasgow, King Tuts
10 May: Liverpool, Academy 2
11 May: Birmingham, Academy 2
