Kevin Rowland’s reactivated Dexys Midnight Runners — now going by the shortened band name Dexys — will celebrate the release of One Day I’m Going to Soar, the band’s first album in 27 years, by performing it in its entirety at a pair of “theatrical shows” in Glasgow and Dublin this May, the group tweeted today.
The concerts are set for May 6 at the Cottier Theatre in Glasgow and May 8 at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London, and will find the band “perform(ing) the new album in its entirety, in sequence, followed by a few Dexys favourites.” The band adds: “We are planning a theatrical show – hence the seated venues. Look good, we will.”
Dexys tour dates:
May 6: Cottier Theatre, Glasgow, UK
May 8: O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, London, UK
