SCOTS singing stars The Proclaimers have lined up an autumn date at York’s Grand Opera House on October 22.
It’s 26 years since The Proclaimers released their first album This Is The Story.
Strikingly individual, twin brothers Craig and Charlie Reid have over the years enjoyed huge success across the globe as the emotional honesty, political fire, wit and sing-along raucousness of their songs and their extensive touring has enlightened and entertained fans new and old.
The Proclaimers have carved out a niche for themselves in the netherworld where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide .
In the process they have enjoyed Gold and Platinum singles and albums in UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
The last few years has see The Proclaimers grace main stages at the likes of V Festival, T In The Park, Isle Of Wight Festival, Womad and Glastonbury in-between regular touring across the globe. Craig and Charlie have reached the rarefied status that few have been able to achieve: with nearly three decades of career longevity, they are as innovative as ever and with every album and show played, they’ve garnered new fans, all the while consistently replenishing one of the most precious resources in music – thoughtful pop albums.
This spring sees the release of their new album movie version of the hugely successful, award winning musical drama, Sunshine On Leith featuring songs by The Proclaimers set to be filmed by Glasgow based production company Black Camel.
Expect to hear all the classics Sunshine On Leith, I’m Gona Be 500 Miles, Letter From America, I’m On My Way, King Of The Road, Lets Get Married and more.
