Change of Venue.

Due to popular demand, The Divine Comedy will now appear in Sage One. All ticket holders will be contacted in due course to arrange a transfer to the new venue.


With their eagerly anticipated eleventh album ‘Foreverland’ due for release September 2nd, The Divine Comedy have announced 18 UK & Irish dates (alongside a full European tour) this October and early in 2017.

Since The Divine Comedy’s inception in 1989, Neil Hannon has time and again proved to be one of the UK’s best and most original songwriters. New album ‘Foreverland’ exemplifies this, with references to everything from Catherine The Great to the French Foreign Legion. Neil says of the new record, ‘it’s about meeting your soul mate and living happily ever after… and then what comes after happily ever after. Get ready for the most historically inaccurate hit of the summer’.

While not releasing a record since 2010’s ‘Bang Goes The Knighthood’, Neil Hannon has certainly kept himself busy. He co-wrote a second album for acclaimed cricket-themed project, The Duckworth Lewis Method, composed a choral work for the Royal Festival Hall’s newly renovated organ entitled ‘To Our Fathers In Distress’, and oversaw the transfer of his musical, Swallows And Amazons, to the West End stage.
