"We love playing the Roundhouse, we've done some of our best gigs there … so we're very excited about playing our first iTunes Festival gig there," the group said in a statement.

A host of acts have already been confirmed for the series of concerts, including Paul Simon, Foo Fighters, Glasvegas and Beady Eye.
