Del Amitri have announced a tour of the UK; the celebrated Glaswegian band’s first run of dates since 2014. The July 2018 tour includes original band members, Justin Currie (vocals, guitar), Iain Harvie (lead guitar), Andy Alston (keys), Kris Dollimore (guitar) and Ashley Soan (drums, and will see Del Amitri headline Edinburgh Castle for the first time in twenty five years. The band will also return to London’s Hammersmith Apollo, where they played a sold-out show in January 2014 on The A To Z Of Us Tour, their first UK dates for more than a decade.

“25 years ago we played Edinburgh Castle to the biggest headline audience we’d ever been in front of,” says Justin Currie. “I wore a kilt and my bass didn’t work for the first two minutes during which we played the opening riff of The Ones That You Love Lead You Nowhere over and over again. We never recovered. This is our chance to make up for it. I won’t be wearing a kilt…”

“From Nothing Ever Happens to Jesus Saves there is a catalogue of Del Amitri songs that seem even more relevant now than when we wrote them,” adds Iain Harvie. “In this new millennium where everything changes and everything stays the same in an increasingly disorientating gyre of social and personal atomisation, the chance to lean against the bar and play our songs again to audiences around the UK just seems like something too right.”
