ECHO & The Bunnymen have announced a 16-date UK tour for May 2021.

The tour, which opens at Sheffield City Hall on Friday, May 7, will celebrate the songs that have brought the group twenty top 20 hits and nine top 20 albums so far during their incredible 40-year career.

Frontman Ian McCulloch said: “Well then, here are the dates for our 2021 UK tour! I can’t wait to be out there with the band on all those stages in all those cities and towns, doing what I love most, playing our magical songs to our brilliant fans and, hopefully, making all our lives a little bit happier along the way.”

The band’s seminal albums Crocodiles, Heaven Up Here, Porcupine and Ocean Rain have been a major influence for acts such as Coldplay, The Killers and The Flaming Lips, whilst later albums Evergreen and What Are You Going To Do With Your Life? and Siberia & Meteorites demonstrate what an amazing body of work the band have.

Their latest album, The Stars & The Oceans & The Moon, was released in Autumn 2018 with Q Magazine calling it “magical”.

Tickets go on sale at 9.30am on Friday, June 26.
