Pulp add more dates to reunion tour (which starts tonight)

Pulp begin their UK reunion tour tonight in Bridlington, and as a surprise this morning the band announced a couple more shows: Manchester Castlefield Bowl on July 4 with Baxter Dury (that's a great double bill), and London's Eventim Apollo on July 28 & 29 with Lisa O'Neill. The band's tour also includes the Isle of Wight Festival, London's Finsbury Park with Wet Leg, and more. All dates are listed below.

Along with the new London and Manchester shows, Pulp also shared their new line of merch that will be available at shows, including some pretty sweet socks and official "Monday Morning" tea. For those who can't make it to a show, it's also available via the Pulp store.
