Fearne Cotton and Zane Lowe take to the road this October for Radio 1's Student Tour

BBC Radio 1's Fearne Cotton and Zane Lowe are set to visit four university towns and cities across the UK in October to broadcast their shows live from each location and meet up with some of the biggest music acts of the moment who are touring the country* – Mark Ronson, 30 Seconds To Mars, Chase & Status and Klaxons.
