Kanye West has announced a handful of UK gigs, set to take place as part of his "Glow In The Dark" worldwide tour.

Although support for the UK dates have not yet been announced, the tour has previously seen high-profile artists join West on the road, including Gnarls Barkley and Rihanna.

Kanye West will perform at:

London O2 Arena (November 12)
Newcastle Arena (13)
Birmingham NEC (15)
Glasgow SECC (16)
Manchester MEN (17)

Tickets for the tour go on sale at 9am (BST) on August 29.
