The Divine Comedy announce Edinburgh gig

The Divine Comedy have announced seven further dates for their winter UK tour – including a visit to Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on Wednesday, 22 November.

Since The Divine Comedy’s inception in 1989, Neil Hannon has time and again proved to be one of the UK’s best and most original songwriters.

The Divine Comedy’s new album, Foreverland, was hailed as one of the albums of the year by the critics and debuted at Number 7 in the UK Chart.

 Each and every single from the album was playlisted at radio and sessions included Radcliffe & Maconie, Chris Evans and Dermot O’Leary.

Hannon and co also managed to find time to make a star turn on Later With Jools Holland.

 The Divine Comedy can also be caught live this summer, with headline slots at the Deer Shed and Cropredy festivals as well as main stage performances at Latitude and Electric Picnic.
