Cities of Love Tour 2021
This show was rescheduled from 30th October 2020.
2020 was a big one for Deacon Blue. They announced a new album, City Of Love, which saw the multi-million selling band deliver eleven brilliant new tracks tethered by a singular belief – that even in the corners of a town or a life where no light falls, hope can prevail.
This has fuelled a creative resurgence which returned the band not only to mainstream radio playlists, but also back into the sort of venues befitting the stature of a chart-topping legacy boasting seven million album sales, two number one albums and fourteen hit singles.
Ricky Ross said, “We’re so looking forward to you hearing City Of Love and getting out on the road, playing new songs and old songs too. Every time we tour now it feels like a celebration because our fans are still there and it’s a delight for us. We’re planning to make this the best one yet.
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.
