The Divine Comedy, Brighton Dome, Brighton - 16th October 2019

Waited so long to see Divine Comedy again
2016 was the last time. This was very special to me as I just became 65 years old and my two grown up daughters were with me. We have followed the band since 2002 and they have improved so much with age! A thoroughly enjoyable night. I wish I could roll the clock back 24 hours and see the band again tonight!

Dearly beloved band The Divine Comedy are celebrated for their witty ditties and pastiche on Europop.

The band is well known for their hit singles which include the misleading menace of Something For The Weekend, the pneumatic beat of Generation Sex, the ultimate unrequited love ballad The Frog Princes and National Express which is an ironic ode to the NHS.

Neil Hannon first started The Divine Comedy in 1989. The tongue-in-cheek tunes saw some success in France with the first three albums Fanfare For The Comic Muse, Liberation and Promenade but had yet to score a hit elsewhere.

However, with Britpop in full flow, the 1996 release of Casanova with its satirical charm chimed perfectly with the irony and humorous temperament of the time and saw The Divine Comedy become a household name.
Fortune has continued to smile on Hammond as he has explored his talents with a total of eleven studio albums and enjoyed many other creative outlets.

Foreverland is the name of the new and highly anticipated album by The Divine Comedy to be released in September of this year. In typical fashion for Hammond and co., the record’s range of cultural references is vast as they sing songs about everything from Catherine The Great to The Foreign Legion.

it's about meeting your soul mate and living happily ever after... and then what comes after happily ever after. Get ready for the most historically inaccurate hit of the summer” - Neil Hammond

Although this is Hammond’s first record release since Bang Goes The Knighthood in 2010 he has been far from idle. He has composed a choral work for the newly renovated organ at the Royal Festival Hall titled To Our Fathers In Distress, has supervised the adaptation of his musical Swallows and Amazons to the West End stage and has co-written an album for the cricket crazed poetic pop band The Duckworth Lewis.

The Divine Comedy tickets will go on sale through Gigantic on Friday 5th of May at 09:00.

See Neil Hammond and his band when they play this November at O2 Institute Birmingham, Colston Hall at Bristol, Eventim Apollo in London and O2 Academy Bournemouth.

As concert tickets are always limited it is best to book early to avoid disappointment.
