The Jesus And Mary Chain to perform Psychocandy in its entirety live

The Jesus And Mary Chain are set to perform their 1985 debut album Psychocandy at three UK shows this November.

The gigs will take place in anticipation of the album's 30th anniversary, with the band kicking off the trio of concerts at London's Troxy on November 19, following it with shows at Manchester Academy on November 20 and Glasgow Barrowlands on November 21. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday May 16.

The band's last UK appearances took place at London's Roundhouse and Forum in 2008. Speaking about the impending 30th anniversary of Psychocandy, Jim Reid said: "Psychocandy was meant to be a kick in the teeth to all of those who stood in our way at the time, which was practically the whole music industry. In 1985 there were a great many people who predicted no more than a six month life span for The Mary Chain. To celebrate the approaching 30th anniversary of the album, we would like to perform it in its entirety. We will also perform key songs from that period that did not feature on the album."

The Jesus And Mary Chain will play:

London The Troxy (November 19)
Manchester Academy (20)
Glasgow Barrowlands (21)
