PharrellNoted hat-wearer Pharrell Williams has announced some European tour dates, including two 'gigs' in the United Kingdom.

For reasons no one can quite fathom, the 'jaunt' starts in Manchester on September 9 before going all across Europe and even­tu­ally coming back to the UK and London's O2 arena on October 9.

Someone should have perhaps told him there's a more direct route between Manchester and London, but what can you do.

Tickets go on sale on Friday.
