Badly Drawn Boy to headline at the Limelight

UK singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Badly Drawn Boy is pleased to announce a headline show at The Limelight 2, Belfast on Tuesday October 17th 2017.

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of his seminal, magical, Mercury-prize winning debut ’The Hour Of Bewilderbeast’, Badly Drawn Boy released a new deluxe version of the album on 22nd January 2016, including bonus unheard tracks and new artwork.

It was June 2000 when the Mercury Prize-winning, seminal ‘The Hour of the Bewilderbeast’, announced the arrival of the badly drawn genius of Damon Gough. It’s been a curious, wonderful, inimitable, unpredictable career so far of major prizes and minor incidents, all possibilities and magic in the air.

Since then he has released four subsequent studio albums – Have You Fed The Fish? (2002), One Plus One Is One (2004), Born In The UK (2006) and It’s What I’m Thinking Part 1: Photographing Snowflakes (2010) – and three film soundtracks, About A Boy (2002, from the film of the same name), Is There Nothing We Could Do? (2009, from the Caroline Aherne film The Fattest Man In The UK) and Being Flynn (from the 2012 film of the same name).

Badly Drawn Boy’s soundtrack to the 2002 film About A Boy, starring Hugh Grant, remains one of Badly Drawn Boy’s most critically acclaimed and successful albums (certified Gold in the UK) and spawned two singles, ‘Silent Sigh’ and ‘Something To Talk About’.
