Nerve Centre Bring Beautiful South Pair Back to Derry

Former Beautiful South singers, Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott, will return to Derry on Wednesday, April 13, after performing to a sellout audience at the Nerve Centre at the end of last year.  

Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 13 and are priced at £26.00.  The pair brings their Irish tour to the Millennium Forum where they’ll be performing new songs alongside classic tracks from The Beautiful South’s and The Housemartins’ back catalogues.

Back with their biggest headline tour to date and new album, Wisdom, Laughter and Lines, this record is the second from Paul and Jacqui. It follows the critically acclaimed What Have We Become, which saw them return together on record for the first time since the multi-million selling days of The Beautiful South, who in the 1990s and early 2000s released a string of critically-acclaimed records.

Paul and Jacqui worked together on The Beautiful South’s biggest hits, including ‘Rotterdam’, ‘Perfect 10’ and ‘Don’t Marry Her’.

Their new album Wisdom, Laughter and Lines is a wonderful contemporary record, full of lyrical wit and humour, whilst retaining a strong social conscience that touches on the changing social landscape of Britain. The first single from the album is ‘The Austerity of Love’ has been a massive hit for them.

Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott perform at the Millennium Forum on Wednesday, April 13.
