Del Amitri play the Symphony Hall 23rd July

It’s one we’ve been waiting for at Birmingham Live. Del Amitri will hit the road for the first time in over four years  when they embark on their UK Tour, beginning July 20th at Newcastle City Hall and culminating in two hometown shows at Glasgow Barrowlands.on July 28th & 29th.  Luckily in Birmingham we don’t have long to wait as they are at the Symphony Hall on the 23rd July.

The tour features original band members – Justin Currie (vocals, guitar), Iain Harvie (lead guitar), Andy Alston (keys), Kris Dollimore (guitar) and Ashley Soan (drums) – and will see Del Amitri headline Edinburgh Castle for the first time in 25 years. The band will also return to London’s Hammersmith Apollo, where they played a sold-out show in January 2014 on ‘The A To Z of Us Tour’, their first UK dates for more than a decade.

“Preparations for our Seven Cities tour in July are proceeding apace,” says frontman Justin Currie. “Costumes have been assembled from Harris tweed and jute from Dundee, dance moves rehearsed with our Brazilian choreography team while an enormous set is being fabricated on the Clyde by a crack team of papier-mâché sculptresses. The overarching concept for all this escapes us at this juncture but we’d like to reassure our fans that songs obscure and blindingly obvious will be played in no particular order, mainly on guitars.”
