Deacon Blue to play Inverness Leisure Centre in October, 2020.
It may well be almost a year away but it will be highly anticipated: Deacon Blue will return to Inverness on Friday 30th October 2020 and to the scene of their 2014 performance at Inverness Leisure, or the ILC Arena as it was referred to 5 years ago. 2020 is set to be a big year for Deacon Blue, a year that includes a tour on the back of their forthcoming album release ‘City of Love’.
The new album, CITY OF LOVE, which sees 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. Long praised for their live performances, CITIES OF LOVE will see the band visit more cities in the UK and Ireland than ever before, including seven arena shows and the Royal Albert Hall in London.
CITY OF LOVE (to be released March 6th and available to pre-order now from www.deaconblue.com) is the fourth release of a prolific seven-year period for Deacon Blue. Their last three albums returned the band to the Top 20 of the UK album charts, the most recent posting at number 12, giving them their highest charting album in 23 years. 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 14 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 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.”
