So far it's shaping up to be a great morning for anglophiles as our loading dock is packed with new listings for the United Kingdom including dates for The Hoosiers, Taio Cruz and Duncan Lloyd.

Playing U.K. dates in October and November, new listings include October 24 in Plymouth at Plymouth Pavilions, October 27 in London at Carling Bristol Academy and two dates for Reading - October 29 at Rivermead Leisure Complex and November 5 at Sakura. The band also adds a November 16 date in Basel, Switzerland, venue TBA.
Producer / singer / songwriter Taio Cruz updates today with a tour of Britain. Dates include November 10 in Brighton at Concorde 2, November 11 in Bristol at Bristol Bierkeller, November 16 in Manchester at the University and November 19 in Manchester at Barfly.
