There's only one place to be on Saturday 3rd June, 2017!
Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott are playing a special one off show at the home of the famous Hull Kingston Rovers Rugby League Club - the KC Lightstream Stadium.
Running as part of the Hull UK City Of Culture celebrations, Paul and Jacqui will be performing songs from their two Top 5 albums plus classic tracks from The Beautiful South and The Housemartins. We're thrilled to be supporting, together with the one and only Billy Bragg!
Tickets go on sale from 9.30am (UK) on Friday 25th November at gigsandtours.com
Paul and Jacqui's critically acclaimed new album Wisdom, Laughter and Lines is out now.
“Glorious hymns to life’s simple pleasures….rich acerbic lyrics set against exuberant music informed by Heaton’s encyclopaedic love of pop and soul.”
“…a timeless, catchy pop album shot through with (the Alan Bennett of pop) Heaton’s razor-sharp Northern wit.”
“…a smart, eclectic and outgoing album – the pair’s vocal chemistry matched by Heaton’s tart, funny, sharply observed lyrics. There’s testifying rock’n’reggae, gospel, epic sad-eyed kitchen sink balladry, pub dub and Northern soul sass. Smiles all round.” 4*
