Kylie Minogue will play a series of arena shows in the UK later this year as part of her European tour.

The Australian singer, who currently serves as a judge on The Voice, will play the gigs in the wake of her new album Kiss Me Once.

It is the first time the singer, whose hits include "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" and "Confide In Me", has played in the UK since the Anti Tour in April 2012.

The new album, which features tracks by Haim producer Ariel Rechtshaid as well as Pharrell Williams, is her first for four years.

The Independent's music critic Andy Gill gave the new record three stars, calling it "a partial success" and praising it for being more characterful than either of her previous albums X or Aphrodite.

Tickets for the Kiss Me Once tour go on sale on Friday and are available through

The shows begin in Liverpool on 24 September, calling at London, Cardiff, Nottingham, Birmingham, Dublin, Belfast, Newcastle, Glasgow and winding up in Sheffield on November 13.
