MySpace continues its move into the U.K. live music sector with a new band tour this March. Following on from 2006's MyFestival event, which saw the lifestyle portal host fifty bands across five British cities, the MySpace Bleep Bleep Tour will showcase four new bands at ten cities nationwide.

Co-headlining the ten-date stretch are B-Unique's Pull Tiger Tail, the London trio widely-expected to follow in the footsteps of labelmates Kaiser Chiefs, and Ali Love. Support will be provided by London five-piece Hadouken! and Cornish power poppers I Say Marvin. The tour is co-promoted by American live music promoters GoldenVoice.

"MySpace has revolutionized the way people discover new music," said Jamie Kantrowitz, senior VP for marketing and content, Europe, in a statement. "That discovery goes hand in hand with the live experience - and with this tour we hope to host some unforgettable gigs. We're covering every major base in the U.K. and aim to reach fans of our featured artists wherever they live."

Fans will be encouraged to post reviews, photos and videos of the shows at www.myspace.com/liveintheuk. Tickets go on sale Feb. 9.
