The Irish Village presents THE PROCLAIMERS Live in Dubai on Thursday 25 April 2019.
Following early success on the strength of their blend of pop and politics, the brothers Reid – Charlie and Craig– have reached the rarefied status that few have been able to achieve: with nearly three decades of career longevity, they are as innovative as ever.
With every album and show played, they’ve garnered new fans, all the while consistently replenishing one of the most precious resources in music – thoughtful pop albums.
The breadth of the brothers’ talent is evidenced with their acoustic EP, a reimagining of three of the songs on 2007’s Life With You, plus a cover of the Kings of Leon’s 17.
The rest of the EP takes on some of the band’s most politicised material, dealing with the British honors system, political responsibility and the unending wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Reid’s continued spirit of political consciousness blended with ear-catching pop hooks is present on Notes and Rhymes, according to Craig, their most sombre yet.
Written over the shortest amount of time of any of their albums, Notes and Rhymes serves as an up-to-the-minute examination of their feelings on both music and politics.
The Proclaimers have been eagerly enjoying returning to the road, where they’ve been honing their skills for decades.
Thursday 25 April 2019 from 9pm until 11pm.
