DEACON Blue has announced an October date with Inverness as part of its Cities Of Love tour next year.

Deacon Blue will perform at Inverness Leisure on Friday, October 30 next year as part of the new album tour.

Deacon Blue also announce the new album, City Of Love, which sees the multi-million selling band deliver 11 new tracks tethered by a singular belief – that even in the corners of a town or a life where no light falls, hope can prevail.

Long praised for their live performances, Cities Of Love will see the band visit more cities in the UK and Ireland than ever before, including seven arena shows and the Royal Albert Hall in London.

City Of Love will be released on March 6 – and is available to pre-order now from www.deaconblue.com – and it is the fourth release in a prolific seven-year period for Deacon Blue.

Their last three albums returned the band to the Top 20 of the UK album charts, the most recent posting at number 12, giving them their highest charting album in 23 years.

This has fuelled a creative resurgence which returned the band not only to mainstream radio playlists, but also back into the sort of venues befitting the stature of a chart-topping legacy boasting seven million album sales, two number one albums and 14 hit singles.

Ricky Ross said: "We're so looking forward to you hearing City of Love and getting out on the road, playing new songs and old songs too. Every time we tour it feels like a celebration because our fans are still there and it's a delight for us. We're planning to make this the best one yet.”
