Preview: The Proclaimers at the O2 Guildhall, Southampton


Marking the release of their tenth studio album Let’s Hear It For The Dogs, Scotland’s most famous twins are set to hit Southampton with their riotous mix of sing along anthems, smooth poignant favourites and, yes, that song.

Twins Charlie and Craig Reid have been making music as The Proclaimers for nearly 30 years now. Since releasing their first album This Is The Story in 1987, they have brought endless energy to their countless performances and have repeatedly brought the heart, soul and sound of Scotland to fans the world over.

While crowd pleasing favourites ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’, ‘I’m On My Way’ and ‘Sunshine on Leith’ are sure to be heard, the brothers told The Edge‘s Features Editor Camilla in an interview this summer that they try to never play the same set twice. We hold out hope that they’ll play some of the finest hits from the new Let’s Hear It For The Dogs; perhaps the beautifully crooned love song ‘Tuesday Afternoon’, or ‘Then Again’, which is the best, most fun song you’ll ever hear about the BBC child abuse scandal.

The Proclaimers have a huge discography to choose from, and a legacy of putting on stand out performances which fill the audience with infectious enthusiasm and passion for great music. Whatever they may play, the night promises to be one fans won’t forget any time soon.

Support for the night will be provided by Pete Williams, bassist and vocalist for band Dexys Midnight Runners.

Tickets for the Let’s Hear It For The Dogs tour are available here, with tickets for the 26th October gig still available.
