THE WATERBOYS

 

In Their First Australian Tour


Performing cult classics and greatest hits plus new works from ‘An Appointment with Mr Yeats’

The Waterboys will make their first-ever visit to Australia this January.


Mike Scott confirms that the show will be “a killer set of vintage Waterboys” to please their most ardent of fans, spanning their 30-year back catalogue including classics: ‘The Whole of the Moon’, ‘Fisherman’s Blues’, ‘A Bang on the Ear’, ‘This is the Sea’ and ‘All The Things She Gave Me’, together with highlights from their new album ‘An Appointment with Mr Yeats’, celebrating the works of poet WB Yeats, which has received rave reviews in Europe.


Formed in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1983, for three decades The Waterboys have provided a thrilling conduit for the questing spirit of Mike Scott and a fluid cast of fantastic musicians. From ‘The Whole Of The Moon’, a UK hit single not once but twice, in 1985 and again in 1991, to their most recent album, the hugely acclaimed ‘An Appointment With Mr Yeats’, The Waterboys embody all that is most precious about music: power, passion, magic, transformation.


‘An Appointment With Mr Yeats’, The Waterboys’ long-awaited tenth studio album, was produced by Mike Scott and bassist Marc Arciero, and contains 14 new songs created from the lyrics of Ireland's greatest poet, WB Yeats.


The enigmatic frontman Mike Scott recently published his musical memoir, ‘Adventures Of A Waterboy’. Written between 2008 and 2010 the book is described as an “eye-opening account of Scott’s life in music; serious, funny, profound, whimsical and enigmatic, with blow-by-blow descriptions of his days in teenage garage bands, the rise of The Waterboys, his exploits with Steve Wickham and the rest of the gang in the west of Ireland, and much, much more”.
