McAlmont & Butler announce November UK headline tour (2015)

Story by Jack Foley

FOLLOWING two sell out charity concerts last year McAlmont & Butler have announced a full UK and Ireland tour for November 2015.

The dates will also see them joined by a very special backing band, including members of The Magic Numbers and a string section.

David McAlmont & Bernard Butler first formed in 1994 and released two studio albums The Sound of McAlmont & Butler in 1995 featuring the enduring hits Yes and You Do followed by 2002’s Bring it Back.

In 2014, Bernard Butler organised two special shows as McAlmont & Butler in aid of the Bobath Centre, assisting children with cerebral palsy.

The first show, originally intended for a small intimate audience, went on sale to the Union Chapel in London, selling out in minutes via social media.

A quickly announced second show 200 metres away at Islington’s Assembly Hall went as quickly.

Demon Records will release a re-mastered deluxe reissue of 1995’s The Sound Of … McAlmont & Butler to precede the tour with a long lost third album of new unreleased material penned for future release… so watch this space.

Tickets for McAlmont and Butler’s November headline tour go on sale on Friday, March 6 at 9am.

The dates are (all November 2015)

1 – Dublin, Vicar Street
2 – Glasgow, O2 ABC
3 – Manchester Ritz
5 – Birmingham Institute
6 – Bristol O2 Academy
7 – London Roundhouse
