‘I find it hard to put into words quite how the music of The Proclaimers makes me feel. It makes me laugh. It makes me cry. It just makes me generally euphoric … Sunshine On Leith says more to me about my life and the way I feel than anything Morrissey or Cobain ever wrote.’
Scotland’s finest Celtic soul brothers The Proclaimers, twins Craig and Charlie Reid, charmed the world with their consummate pop songs, charged with emotional honesty, political fire and wit like the euphoric I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) that took the band to the top of the Australian singles charts for four consecutive weeks.
Coming off the back of a mammoth 70-show tour of the UK, including performances at Glastonbury, T in the Park and Wychwood Festivals, The Proclaimers are heading to Sydney for their debut performance at the Sydney Opera House.
"I could have chosen any and every track from this band, probably my favourite band of all time. They write the most spectacular songs, big hearted, uncynical passionate songs." DAVID TENNANT, BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs
Expect to hear the classics I'm on My Way, Sunshine on Leith, Letter From America, and I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) as well as songs from their highly acclaimed 10th studio album Let’s Hear It For The Dogs produced by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Kylie Minogue, Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey).
The Proclaimers are renowned for their charismatic live stage shows and raucous, uplifting music. Honest, hard-working and absolutely wonderful live in concert.
"As evidenced by the cheers and dancing and singing that attend the pair's exuberant show, the Proclaimers are very much a going, roaring concern.” - THE INDEPENDENT (UK)
