Texas have announced their first live show after a break of more than two years.

Following a short hiatus, in which frontwoman Sharleen Spiteri focused on her solo career, the group - famous for hits like I Don't Want A Lover, Say What You Want and In Our Lifetime - will reunite to perform at Westonbirt Arboretum on July 17.

"I love forests, they are a national treasure - we can't wait to perform all our hits at Westonbirt Arboretum this summer," Sharleen said.

A new Texas album is planned for release this year.

Status Quo have also announced a forest date. The legendary rockers will play Thetford Forest on June 9.

Frontman Francis Rossi said: "Forestry Commission Live Music is a fantastic annual event that has become a statutory part of the UK's live music calendar. We love to bag a trip to the woods each year.

"We are pleased to make Thetford part of our touring plans for 2011 particularly as we had a great gig performing to a capacity crowd last time we were there."

Tickets for both gigs will be available from 9am on February 11 from the Forestry Commission box office.
