MUSIC: Deacon Blue’s ‘Cities of Love’ tour takes in Dublin

This is a big year for Deacon Blue.

THIS is a big year for Deacon Blue.

Their new album ‘City Of Love’ sees the multi-million selling band deliver 11 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.

Supported by a huge tour, the band will be coming to Dublin with a date in the Olympia Theatre on Tuesday, November 3.

‘City Of Love’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 No 12, giving them their highest charting album in 23 years.

This has fuelled a creative resurgence which returned the band to mainstream radio playlists, and 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 now it feels like a celebration.”
