Scottish duo, The Proclaimers, are returning to Australia in May for a national tour with shows in Toowoomba, Brisbane, Caloundra, Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne, Geelong, Adelaide and Perth.

It has been 32 years since Scotland’s finest Celtic soul brothers, Craig and Charlie Reid, aka The Proclaimers, emerged in our musical psyche. Since then, their enduring appeal across generations has carved a niche for themselves where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide as the emotional honesty, political fire, wit and sing-along raucousness of their songs and their extensive touring has enlightened and entertained fans around the World.

2018 saw The Proclaimers record their 11th studio album at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales in April with producer Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Roger Daltrey, Kylie Minogue) at the helm. Angry Cyclist, released in August 2018, became the band’s 8th UK Top 40 album debuting in the UK Official Album charts at 17 and at number 3 in the UK Official Independent Album Charts.

The Proclaimers performed 61 times on the 2018 leg of their Angry Cyclist tour including 5 UK festivals, 13 concerts in Canada and 43 sold out UK shows, playing in front of over 250,000 fans during the run. 5,400 minutes of Craig and Charlie, along with band members Stevie, Garry John, Zac and Clive, performing on stage!

“They effortlessly took this audience from heartache to joy without breaking a sweat. Completely unpretentious and with none of the fancy trappings of some stage shows, the brothers let their music and vocal range shine through” – Nottingham Post

It’s been 3 years since The Proclaimers last came ‘down under’ and they’re looking forward to returning, “We’ve been coming to Australia since late ’80s and have loved being there every time. We hope the audiences will enjoy the new songs and the old” said Charlie and Craig.

Craig and Charlie have reached a rarefied status: after three decades they are as innovative as ever and with every album and show played, The Proclaimers continue to garner new fans. Their songs are timeless: with their catchy tunes and stirring harmonies they capture the full gamut of human emotions.

Expect to hear all the classics – Let’s Get Married, Sunshine on Leith, Letter From America and I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) along songs from their recently released, highly acclaimed, Angry Cyclist, album.

Fans are reminded to only buy tickets from the official ticket agents listed below so as to avoid “reselling” sites such as Viagogo who typically advertise heavily online and often mislead consumers into paying much higher prices than necessary.

All shows are All Ages and tickets are on sale NOW and already selling fast.
