TRAVIS will play Inverness on November 18 and Aberdeen on November 19 as part of a series of Scottish dates.

In Inverness, the Ironworks announced the date saying: "We are delighted to welcome Travis back to the Ironworks this November. After their incredible headlining appearance at Belladrum Festival last year we know this is going to be be one of the hottest tickets of the year.

Travis formed in Glasgow in 1990, though their current line-up dates from 1994.

The band has released six studio albums: Good Feeling (1997), The Man Who (1999), The Invisible Band (2001), 12 Memories (2003), The Boy With No Name (2007) and Ode To J. Smith (2008), all making the Top 20.

Their seventh – Where You Stand – will be released next month.

Travis have twice been awarded best band at the BRIT Awards, and are often credited as having paved the way for bands such as Coldplay and Keane.

Coldplay's Chris Martin has called himself "a poor man's Fran Healy", while saying that Travis "invented" Coldplay "and lots of others".

The band named themselves after the Harry Dean Stanton character Travis Henderson from the film Paris, Texas.

Last year before their set at Belladrum, Fran Healy revealed that the upcoming album had come from sessions in London, Berlin, Brighton, New York and Glasgow, with the band also going on to a studio in Norway to record it.

Tickets for the Inverness gig go on sale from the venue on Saturday at 9am.

Tickets for the Aberden Music Hall gig on Tuesday, November 19 also go on sale on online at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty's Theatre.
