Following the announcement of new album 'Manchester Calling' to be released next March, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbottt return to Castlefield Bowl, Manchester for a show on Saturday 4th July 2020.
As with the previous live shows, Paul & Jacqui have requested that the ticket price for this show is £30.
Tickets will go on sale at 9.30am on Friday 15th November.
Says Paul: “I've lived in Manchester for 17 years now and recording an album here for the first time, was looking forward to cycling to work. That was never possible as Manchester is now being turned into a business centre for the rich, which I can't stand. If there's a theme to the record, it's anti growth, anti greed, against the continuous tearing down of old buildings and sticking up soulless offices, and the disappearance of local accents on TV, along with the creeping spread of Americanese. So, some curmudgeonly moans, plus some hopefully uplifting love songs. Originally it was set up to be a double LP like 'London Calling' but alas the double album has also become a victim of time"
Says Jacqui: ““I’m so pleased and excited about the new album, it was wonderful to work on new songs and even more so that we did double what we have done for the last few records. It’ll be a joy to see others react to something we took such pleasure out of making”
