Following their ecstatically received, sold out performances in Belfast & Dublin this past June, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott have announced details of extensive Irish tour dates this Autumn.
They play Derry’s Nerve Centre on 26th October, Belfast’s Ulster Hall on 27th October before visiting Dublin on 28th October along with other Irish dates.
‘What Have We Become’ is the new album from Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott. Paul & Jacqui return together on record for the first time since the multi-million selling days of The Beautiful South, who in the 1990s and early 2000s released a string of critically-acclaimed records.
‘What Have We Become’ is a wonderful contemporary record, full of lyrical wit and humour, whilst retaining a strong social conscience that touches on the changing social landscape of Britain (‘One Man’s England’, ‘When I Get Back To Blighty’), stereotypes in music (‘I Am Not A Muse’), whilst ‘The Snowman’ and ‘Some Dancing To Do’ deal with issues of loss.
