The Waterboys return with their spectacular two-part show, featuring the already classic seven-piece line-up they debuted in 2018.
The band will take the stage early as no support act will be featured and will play a long and generous set in two halves.
Centred as always around the guitar and vocals of Mike Scott, The Waterboys feature electric fiddle maestro Steve Wickham, Memphis soul man Brother Paul on keyboards; Aongus “funkiest man in Ireland” Ralston on bass; Jess Kav and Zeenie Summers on backing vocals and and top British drummer Ralph Salmins.
About Steve Wickham DJ Chris Evans said: “I’ve had Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page on my show but the best guitar solo we’ve ever had was played on this man’s fiddle.”
They promise an incendiary set comprising brilliant new material and the best of their recent and vintage work. The band’s last three albums ‘Out Of All This Blue’ (2017), ‘Modern Blues’ (2015) and ‘An Appointment With Mr Yeats’ (2011) re-established them as one of the crucial bands currently working out of these islands.
Many of their songs including ‘Fisherman’s Blues’, ‘The Whole Of The Moon’ and ‘How Long Will I Love You’ have become modern classics and they remain one of the most unmissable live acts in the world.
