By Catherine Ming | Feb 27, 2023 | News
Millennium Forum – 29th Oct 2023
Tickets on sale @ 9.30am Tues 28th Feb
The Millennium Forum has just announced the welcome return of one of the most popular bands of the past few decades. The Waterboys will return to the North West’s premier theatre on 29th October 2023 and tickets go on sale at 9.30am on Tuesday 28th February.
Few bands have as great a live reputation as The Waterboys. From their mid-1980s ‘big music’ period through the influential mix of Celtic, gospel and country on their classic Fisherman’s Blues tours, to the hundreds of brilliant shows accompanying the last decade’s run of supremely in-form albums from 2011’s. From An Appointment With Mr Yeats to this summer’s Good Luck, Seeker, The Waterboys have consistently blended tightness, inspiration and improvisation to reach heights of performance few other acts can.
Led by mercurial and brilliant Scottish guitarist/vocalist Mike Scott, the popular reach of Waterboys music has never been greater. Their songs have been performed by artists as varied as Prince, The Killers and U2, all of whom have performed their classic The Whole Of The Moon; and Fiona Apple who masterfully recorded the song last year; Ellie Goulding, who scored a Top 3 UK hit with ‘How Long Will I Love You’; indie rockers The War On Drugs, Dawes and The Mystery Jets; and classic singers Rod Stewart and Tom Jones. ‘The Whole Of The Moon’ also featured in the smash Netflix film Let It Snow and top HBO series The Affair.
Waterboys music shows no sign of fading, and the best place to experience it is played by the originators in a concert hall. Come and feel the fire!
The Waterboys perform at the Millennium Forum on 29th October 2023. Tickets go on sale at 9.30am on Tuesday 28th February. Telephone 71 264455 or visit millenniumforum.co.uk for bookings.
