PAUL Heaton and Jacqui Abbott will play Belfast in 2016.
The duo have announced Irish Tour Dates, including shows in Cork, Dublin, Belfast and Derry in April 2016.
Their new album Wisdom, Laughter and Lines follows the critically acclaimed What Have We Become, which saw them return together on record for the first time since the multi-million selling days of The Beautiful South, who in the 1990s and early 2000s released a string of critically-acclaimed records.
Wisdom, Laughter and Lines is a wonderful contemporary record, full of lyrical wit and humour, whilst retaining a strong social conscience that touches on the changing social landscape of Britain.
Tickets for the shows on April 12 at Belfast’s Ulster Hall and April 13 at Derry’s Millenium Forum go on sale on Friday November 13 at 9am from Ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.ie
