Ricky Ross said, “This is a new adventure for the band. We are looking forward to bringing the full Deacon Blue live experience to these unique locations and we really hope you can join us.”
Their melodic pop-rock style gained a fervent fan base through the release of several classic albums like Raintown, When The World Knows Your Name and Fellow Hoodlums.
With jazz and soul inspired melodies, the song-writing skills of front man Ricky Ross are illustrated through the diversity of their repertoire with defining singles including Real Gone Kid, When Will You (Make My Telephone Ring)?, Chocolate Girl, Wages Day, Fergus Sings The Blues, Twist and Shout, Your Town and Dignity.
In 2012 Deacon Blue released their first album in over a decade, The Hipsters, which went Top 20 and was supported by a sold out UK tour.
