The last 5 years of Deacon Blue have seen a creative surge, and the band’s renaissance, with three new albums released in quick succession, 2016’s studio album ‘Believers’ became their highest charting album in 23 years. ‘To Be Here Someday’ is a tour that celebrates the band’s entire career, and will see them play some of their biggest ever shows.
They return to London’s iconic Hammersmith Apollo for the first time in 10 years, and the tour includes three arena shows at Liverpool’s Echo Arena, the BHGE Arena in Aberdeen and, with what is set to be an electrifying end to the tour, The SSE Hydro in the band’s home town of Glasgow.
Ricky Ross says: “This will be the first we have toured without a new album in over five years and the announcement happens to coincide with 30 years of Deacon Blue so we’re going to make the tour a celebration of 30 years of the band. It’s an opportunity for us to plays songs from Raintown all the way through to Believers.”
The tours title ‘To Be Here Someday’ is a line from their iconic single ‘Dignity’ and encapsulates the band’s hopes, their passion and joy in being able to share with their fans the biggest songs from throughout their career. As has become a feature of their live shows they will present a set list that will change night by night but will always be full of classic Deacon Blue.
