Del Amitri at Newcastle City Hall

About

Del Amitri will return in 2018 for a UK tour, the celebrated Glaswegian band’s first run of dates since 2014. The July 2018 tour includes original band members - Justin Currie (vocals, guitar), Iain Harvie (lead guitar), Andy Alston (keys), Kris Dollimore (guitar) and Ashley Soan (drums).

25 years ago we played Edinburgh Castle to the biggest headline audience we’d ever been in front of,” says Justin Currie. “I wore a kilt and my bass didn’t work for the first two minutes during which we played the opening riff of ‘The Ones That You Love Lead You Nowhere’ over and over again. We never recovered. This is our chance to make up for it. I won’t be wearing a kilt…”

From ‘Nothing Ever Happens’ to ‘Jesus Saves’ there is a catalogue of Del Amitri songs that seem even more relevant now than when we wrote them,” adds Iain Harvie. “In this new millennium where everything changes and everything stays the same in an increasingly disorientating gyre of social and personal atomisation, the chance to lean against the bar and play our songs again to audiences around the UK just seems like something too right.”

Tickets on general sale Thursday 23 November from 9am and are available from the Theatre Royal Box Office.

Formed in Glasgow in 1983, during their distinguished career Del Amitri released four Top 10 albums and a string of memorable hit singles. Their million-selling breakthrough album Waking Hour (1989) included the hits Nothing Ever Happens and Kiss This Thing Goodbye. The follow-up, 1992’s Change Everything, featured the massive radio single Always The Last To Know and reached No.2 in the albums chart, only being held off the top slot by the might of The Bodyguard soundtrack. 1995’s Twisted charted at No.3 and included their biggest ever single Roll To Me, which reached No.10 on the Billboard Hot 100. After promoting their fourth album, 2002’s Can You Do Me Good?, Del Amitri went on an indefinite hiatus until 2014, when they reunited for The A to Z of Us Tour.
