Its impressive Alegria production will take place at the O2 Arena London and Wembley Arena during July, while it will return to British shores for dates in Newcastle, Leeds, Liverpool and Nottingham.
Tickets for the shows become available at 09.00 GMT on Friday, December 7th, and demand is expected to be high, with the president of touring for Live Nation describing Cirque du Soleil as "a global phenomenon".
Phil Bowdery also said that the show, which features such stunts as the Aerial High Bars and the Fire-Knife Dance, was the "ultimate in live entertainment", adding that the company was "thrilled to have it tour in even more UK arenas in 2013".
To date, Cirque du Soleil has been witnessed by more than ten million people around the world since it premiered in 1994.
