Post-punk band Magazine are to reform for a couple of gigs in their native UK, for the first time in 28 years.

The Howard Devoto-led band have not played together since 1980, but will play the London Forum and Manchester Apollo next February.

The three founding members will be joined by an as-yet-unnamed guitarist, who will stand in for the late John McGeoch.

For the moment, the only planned reunion gigs are for the UK - but watch this space.
