CHART-topping dance act Nero are celebrating the release of their latest single with a UK tour, including a date next week in Sheffield - and we have TEN tickets to be won.

The duo, Joe Ray and Dan Stephens, bring their Second Reality Tour to the city’s O2 Academy on Wednesday, March 14.

One of the biggest names in dance music, their new double-A side single Must Be The Feeling  and Innocence, was released this week.

It is the fifth release to be taken from their number one album Welcome Reality and follows hit singles Reaching Out, Me & You, Guilt and their top of the pops smash Promises.

Must Be The Feeling, released on Chase & Status’ label MTA Records, pivots on an 80s sample by a Detroit disco teen diva called Carmen,  the result of Nero scouring the internet for rare boogie tracks.

Innocence, originally released in April 2010, climbed to number 16 and 11, respectively, on the Dance and Independent charts and has become a massive live favourite.

The past 121-months have been an incredible year for Nero – they are the only British dance act of 2011 to have a number one album and Promises was the first ever UK dubstep chart-topping single.

Nero were nominated for Best New Act at the prestigious Q Awards last year. 

The band played some of the UK’s biggest festivals last summer including Glastonbury, Bestival, Reading and Wireless, as well selling out their first headline UK tour in October, which included a show-stopping performance at the Electric Ballroom.

Following their headline dates, Nero supported Tinie Tempah on his Autumn arena tour and recently joined their label managers Chase & Status at the UKF: Bass Culture Event at Alexandra Palace in November.

The UK tour includes: Newcastle O2 Academy, Thursday, March 8; Leeds O2 Academy, March 9; Liverpool University, March 10; Hertfordshire The Forum, March 12;  Bristol Motion, March 13; Sheffield O2 Academy, March 14; Leicester O2 Academy, March 15; Manchester Academy, March 16; Southampton Guildhall, March 17;  Birmingham HMV Institute, March 18; Glasgow O2 ABC, March 19; Dublin Academy, March 21; Cardiff University Great Hall, March 22; Norwich UEA, March 23; London O2 Academy Brixton, March 24.
