Deborah Bone was childhood friends with Jarvis Cocker and had just won an MBE for her work in mental health.
We knew the band were playing the two Coachella dates in April but now two more American and a Spanish date have been slotted into their schedule.
Pulp have so far been ambigious about the long term future of their reunion - the fact that it was continuing into 2012 was only confirmed at the start of the year by a tweet saying "you think this is over?"
So now we have five confirmed live dates for the band:
11 April 2012 Radio City Music Hall New York, NY, USA
13 April 2012 Coachella Indio, CA, USA
17 April 2012 Warfield San Francisco, CA, USA
20 April 2012 Coachella Indio, CA, USA
4 May 2012 SOS Festival Murcia, Spain
