Via the band’s press release, sic because of the Brits:
Pulp have decided to get together and play some concerts next summer.

Yes, that means they’ll be playing your favourites.
Info on tickets is still forthcoming, but Pulp is pointing fans toward http://pulppeople.com/, which features a slideshow of gear photographs and a series of questions, including “Is this the best news you’ve heard all year?”, “Is this a surprise?”, “Is this a publicity stunt?”, “Is this really necessary?” and “Is this a chance to see the last truly important pop group this country ever produced?” Yes, yes, yes, etc.
