The Coronas have announced they will be touring Dublin venues as they bring their Long Way Home Festival to their hometown this Christmas.

The Dublin Christmas Tour will see the quartet playing the Sound House on December 4, Whelan's on December 6, The Academy on December 8, The Olympia Theatre on December 12 and Vicar Street on December 23.

Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday, September 13, at 9:00am.

The festival has seen the band playing around Ireland, showcasing new material alongside tracks from their back catalogue and with local acts in support.  

"No matter how busy we've been or even when we lived abroad, Dublin at Christmas has always been home for us," The Coronas said.

"This year we want to do something slightly different: we want to play the venues where we honed our sound as a young band, together with some great Dublin venues that we've never gotten [sic] to play before.

"We can't wait to come home."
