With Special Guests Lightning Seeds and Hue & Cry

Lightning Seeds

Lightning Seeds are the brainchild of writer, singer, guitarist and producer Ian Broudie. Ian originally emerged from the post punk Liverpool music scene of the late seventies playing in the band Big in Japan which in turn led to him producing several bands, starting with Echo & The Bunnymen. 

In 1989 Ian as released his debut album as the Lightning Seeds Cloudcukooland featuring the hit single ‘Pure’. Second album Sense followed before the release of the seminal album Jollification in 1994 which has sold nearly 1 million copies to date. 

In 1996, the single ‘3 Lions’, recorded for the England football team’s Euro 96 campaign, topped the charts many times over. That same year Dizzy Heights and 1999’s Tilt were released to critical acclaim before Ian returned to his producer roots. Ian soon began to develop hit albums the likes of The Coral, The Zutons and many more.

Scottish pop band Hue and Cry are embarking on a special 40th Anniversary Tour in 2024 to commemorate their outstanding four-decade legacy.

Since bursting onto the music scene in the 1980s, Hue and Cry have left an indelible mark on the UK music scene with their soulful sound, infectious energy, and thought-provoking lyrics.
