Scottish band Del Amitri are embarking on their first North American tour in 25 years, in support of their first album in nearly two decades, Fatal Mistakes.
The 23-date tour kicks off March 26 in Agoura Hills, CA and wraps up in Cleveland on April 24, with shows in most major U.S. and Canadian cities in between.
The current line-up of the band features founding member and frontman Justin Currie and longtime members Iain Harvie (guitar) and Andy Alston (keyboards). They’re augmented by guitarist Kris Dollimore and drummer Ash Soan, both of whom joined in the late 1990s.
Last year the band performed a free show for Scottish NHS (National Health Service) staff. It went down on December 9 at the famed Barrowland venue in their home city of Glasgow. The gig was the band’s first in more than two years and was their thank you to the workers who were and continue to make such a massive and selfless contribution to public health during the coronavirus crisis.
Del Amitri sold millions of albums and singles during their heyday, releasing six studio albums between 1985 and 2002. They had five consecutive top ten albums in the UK, including the 1998 compilation Hatful Of Rain, and amassed an impressive array of signature hits, 15 of which made the UK top 40. They included such anthems as “Nothing Ever Happens,” “Always The Last To Know,” “Driving With The Brakes On,” and “Roll To Me.”
