The Klaxons have declared that their upcoming live dates that kick off this weekend will be their last headline tour. Full dates and ticket details are below. 

The nu-rave heroes turned dance-rock stars are set to embark on UK jaunt that kicks off in Norwich tomorrow (Saturday 25 October), but fans might want to make sure they catch them at all costs, as it could be their last chance judging by this tweet:

The key phrase 'headline tour' suggests that the band still may be willing to play festivals and such, but time will tell.

"We've been the only band to play every single stage, minus the main stage," said singer and keyboardist James Righton in an interview with Gigwise at Reading 2014. "In a heavier world, there are certain bands like Biffy or Foo Fighters that can do V Festival but also Download."

Simon Taylor-Davis added : "I do think we're an incredibly confusing band. I think we've tried to cover too many things in too short a space. We've made a rock record with Ross Robinson, arguably the king of nu-metal - he's made records by Blood Brothers, At The Drive In, Limp Bizkit. We made a pop record with Gorgon City with Erol Alkan on it, and we made our first record with a great indie producer. I think we're perhaps confused a lot of people."

James added: "Some people probably love certain things that we do, and probably hate other things - we're kind of a Marmite kind of bands for people. I don't know of many bands that have gone through as many drastic changes in sounds as we have."

The band's latest album, Love Frequencies, was released earlier this summer. Their full live dates are below. For tickets and more information, visit here
