Never miss another 'Deacon Blue' show
25th Anniversary Tour: Deacon Blue + Red Sky July
2012 marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Deacon Blue's debut album 'Raintown'. To celebrate, the band are reuniting to record a new studio album (released September 2012 by Demon Music) and head out on a full UK tour in October.
The band have enjoyed five top five albums and 18 top 40 singles over the course of their career. Now, 25 years on, Deacon Blue's enduring success can be measured by six million album sales and an almost peerless live reputation.
Their name was inspired by a Steely Dan song, their music influenced by the artfulness of Bruce Springsteen channelled through a distinctly Scottish upbringing. The end product is Deacon Blue. Fronted by singer/songwriter Ricky Ross, Deacon Blue have enjoyed five top five albums and 18 top 40 singles over the last 25 years, achieving massive chart success in the '80s with tracks including Real Gone Kid and Fergus Sings The Blues. They have continued to release new material, with critically acclaimed albums trilogy The Hipsters (2012), A New House (2014) and Believers (2016) all reaching the UK top 20 album chart.
Deacon Blue tour dates
Red Sky July came together to make music they love with no boundaries and expectations, creating music with a hazy, folk-inflected alt-country sound combining gorgeous harmonies and classic guitar sounds. The three-piece features Shelly Poole (formerly one half of Alisha's Attic), Charity Hair (The Alice Band) and Ally McErlaine (Texas), while their recordings feature guest collaborators including twice Grammy nominated Nashville singer Beth Nielsen Chapman.
