Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears is so grateful for the financial support his parents have given the band, he has invited them to spend a week touring with them.

The Shears family helped to fund the band's debut - paying for recording studios and musical instruments - and now the COMFORTABLY NUMB singer wants to make it up to them.

He says, "My parents are coming out. They're following us around for a week.

"My parents have been so ecstatic and happy, so it's been paying them back in other ways. They're coming to the Royal Albert Hall show."
