'90s Britpop urchins Supergrass have announced their return with a career-spanning best of album and a world tour which includes two Irish shows.

The band, who enjoyed early hits with Caught by The Fuzz and Alright and went on to release six albums, will play the Olympia Theatre February 14 and the Ulster Hall, Belfast on February 17 of next year, with tickets on sale this Friday at 9am.

The Oxford band, who split up in 2010, announced their surprise comeback on Friday night with an unannounced gig at Glastonbury Pilton Party in the UK, which saw them play to a greatest hits set, including Richard III, Moving, Alright, and Caught By The Fuzz.

"Everything aligned for us to make this happen for 2020. It was the first time that we collectively felt the buzz to get back in a room together and play the songs," said Supergrass drummer Danny Coffey.

"We're extremely excited to get out there and bring a bit of Supergrass joy to all our fans... and their extended families."
