Panic! At The Disco have announced that they'll be returning to the UK for a tour in May 2014. Full dates and ticket details are below. 

The band, who released their fourth album Too Weird To Live Too Rare To Die ealier this year, will be playing shows in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Dublin and Belfast.

Frontman Brendon Urie made headlines earlier this year, due to the somewhat controversial video for 'Girls/Girls/Boys'  - where he appears nude in front of a plain black background throughout - in tribute to the video for 'Untitled (How Does It Feel)' by D'Angelo.

Talking to NPR about the tracks lyrics, 'Girls love girls and boys / And love is not a choice.', Urie then spoke about the homophobia that he had experienced as a frontman - despite being married to a woman.

"I believe that you can't control who you are," he said. "It's something that I've experienced myself, that girls do love girls and boys. Girls are just more sexual in nature, much more so than guys.

"A lot of times people want to label something just to make themselves feel comfortable. They wanna call this person gay or this person straight. I have had similar experience with homosexuality, with bisexuality, and that's something I feel comfortable talking about."
