Ever since Mike Scott first brought The Waterboys to public attention their career has been marked by storied departures. Staking out bold, new territory with fresh approaches and inspirational collaborators has been the defining factor of Scott’s creative flow. Now Out Of All This Blue, The Waterboys’ 12 and first double album is maybe the most brilliantly daring and accomplished reinvention of The Waterboys to date.
Formed in 1983 and with a huge back catalogue, don’t miss the Celtic folk and rock n’roll band take to our stage in April following their sell-out October show.
The relevance and popular reach of The Waterboys has never been greater. Their songs have recently been performed by artists as varied as Ellie Goulding, who scored a top 3 UK hit with “How Long Will I Love You” in 2013; Prince, who sang “The Whole Of The Moon” onstage last year; mainstream poppers Boyzone who recorded “The Whole Of The Moon” in 2014, US indie rockers The War On Drugs, who’ve played “A Pagan Place” as a staple of their live set for several years; and cool new American band Dawes who have rearranged “Fisherman’s Blues” to astonishing effect in their 2015 shows. Meanwhile “How Long Will I Love You”, “Fisherman’s Blues” and “You In The Sky” were featured in the recent hit movies About Time, Dom Hemingway and What We Did On Our Holiday.
