The Waterboys

Legendary Irish rock blues band The Waterboys will be performing at Derby Assembly Rooms on May 17.

The Waterboys were formed in 1983 by Mike Scott and became famous for their powerful live performances and majestic alternative rock albums such as A Pagan Place and This Is The Sea, which included their biggest hit ‘The Whole Of The Moon.’

After the recruitment of Irish fiddle maestro Steve Wickham, the band created their million-selling album Fisherman’s Blues, on which Scott’s original and unusual songwriting was merged with older music - country, trad, blues and gospel - to electrifying effect. Their most recent album is An Appointment With Mr Yeats, a collection of lyrics by Ireland’s greatest poet turned into incendiary rock songs, rapturously received by critics and audiences alike.

Tickets for An Appointment With The Waterboys are now on sale at £32. Contact the box office on 01332 255800 or go to http://www.derbylive.co.uk.
