Deacon Blue Announce Summer 2014 Forest Live Dates

Deacon Blue have announced concerts as part of the Forestry Commission's Forest Live music series. Performing in spectacular woodland locations around the country the gigs will be their only headline shows in England this Summer.
 
Deacon Blue are one of the most respected of all Scottish bands. Their melodic pop-rock style gained a fervent fan base through the release of several classic albums like 'Raintown', 'When The World Knows Your Name' and 'Fellow Hoodlums'. With jazz and soul inspired melodies, the song-writing skills of front man Ricky Ross are illustrated through the diversity of their repertoire with defining singles including 'Real Gone Kid', 'When Will You (Make My Telephone Ring)?', 'Chocolate Girl', 'Wages Day', 'Fergus Sings The Blues', 'Twist and Shout', 'Your Town' and 'Dignity'. In 2012 Deacon Blue released their first album in over a decade, The Hipsters, which went Top 20 and was supported by a sold out UK tour.
 
Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission bringing music to new audiences without commercial branding or sponsorship. Income from the concerts is spent on improving the woodland for both people and wildlife.

Commenting on the Forest Live dates, Ricky Ross said, "This is a new adventure for the band. We are looking forward to bringing the full Deacon Blue live experience to these unique locations and we really hope you can join us."

Deacon Blue plus guests will be performing:
 
Saturday 28 June: Dalby Forest, Nr Pickering, N Yorks
Sunday 13 July: Thetford Forest, Nr Brandon, Suffolk
Saturday 19 July: Westonbirt Arboretum, Nr Tetbury, Glos
 
Tickets £40.70 (including booking fee) go on sale from 9.00am Friday 28 February from 03000 680400
