They play London’s prestigious Wembley Arena on Saturday 17th December 2011.     Tickets for the show are priced at £23.50 and go on sale at 9am on May 27th via www.whitelies.com/tickets     The Wembley show marks a significant jump for the band who have already enjoyed a very fruitful 12 months. Last year saw them play U.K and European stadium support slots with Muse and U.S. arena shows alongside Kings Of Leon.     In the first few months of this year the band have played U.S. and U.K. headline tours (including two sold-out nights at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire and a New York Terminal 5 show) and made high-profile Stateside TV appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.      The next three months sees them appear at most of the major Summer festivals and once again play main support on the Kings of Leon U.K. and European stadium tour.     Their current list of U.K. dates is as follows:     MAY  28th                        Slane                                    Slane Castle *  30th                        Coventry                        Ricoh Arena *     JUNE  17th                        Sunderland                        Stadium of Light *  18th                        Llanelli                                    Beach Break Live  19th                        Manchester                        Lancashire C.C.C *  22nd                        London                                    Hyde Park *  23rd                        London                                    Hyde Park *   25th                        Pilton                                    Glastonbury Festival (Other Stage)      JULY  7th                        Coventry                        Kasbah  8th                        Balado                                    T in the Park                          13th                        London                                    The Roundhouse (i-Tunes Festival)     AUGUST  26th                        Reading                        Reading Festival (NME / Radio 1 Stage)  27th                        Leeds                                    Leeds Festival (NME / Radio 1 Stage)     DECEMBER  17th                        London                                    Wembley Arena
