Nottingham and Sheffield dates in September for veterans Del Amitri on latest UK tour

Veterans Del Amitri are to visit Nottingham and Sheffield venues on their major UK headline tour later this year.

Tuesday, 6th April 2021, 12:00 am
Del Amitri will visit the area twice later this year on their UK tour.

You can see them at Nottingham Royal Concert Hall on September 15 and Sheffield City Hall on September 21.

Before then, you will be able to enjoy latest album Fatal Mistakes, released on May 28.

While it has been 19 years since Del Amitri last released a studio album, their current single It’s Feelings proves that their flair for crafting melodic rock songs with lyrical bite, soulful comfort and heart-swelling uplift has only strengthened in the intervening years.

Now Del Amitri’s return gathers pace with their first full UK headline tour since the summer of 2018. Frontman Justin Currie commented: “It’s been nearly 20 years since we toured with a new album, lord knows what took us so long. The prospect of sprinkling our set with a few choices from Fatal Mistakes fills us with the sort of excitement that, for some men of our age, might call for light medication. We think the adrenaline will see us through.”For ticket details, see www.trch.co.uk or www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk

Contemporary heartland rock quintet The Byson Family will support on all dates. Throughout their first chapter, Del Amitri released a succession of hits - including Nothing Ever Happens, Always The Last To Know and Roll To Me - which became international radio staples, propelling a career that accomplished five UK Top 10 albums and six million sales.

They reunited for sold-out tours in 2014 and 2018, when core members Justin Currie (vocals/bass) and Iain Harvie (guitar) began writing songs that would form the foundations for ‘Fatal Mistakes’. The line-up is completed by Andy Alston (keys), Kris Dollimore (guitar) and Ash Soan (drums).
