‘He makes you laugh, but what lifts the comedy towards the divine is the fact that he also makes you think.’ Mail on Sunday Event 5*
‘Almost 27 years into their existence, The Divine Comedy remain a life-affirming joy’ Observer
‘Bittersweet ambiguity, where irony meets sincerity and levity shades into melancholy’ Times 4*
After a run of sold out acclaimed shows in 2016 and early 2017 (including three London Palladiums) and due to phenomenal demand, The Divine Comedy announce 7 further dates for this November / December including 5 in Ireland.
Since The Divine Comedy’s inception in 1989, Neil Hannon has time and again proved to be one of the UK’s best and most original songwriters. The Divine Comedy’s new album, ‘Foreverland’, was hailed as one of the albums of the year by the critics and debuted at Number 7 in the UK Chart.
Each and every single from the album was playlisted at radio and sessions included Radcliffe & Maconie, Chris Evans and Dermot O’Leary. Neil Hannon and co also managed to find time to make a star turn on Later With Jools Holland.
The Divine Comedy can also be caught live this summer, with headline slots at the Deer Shed and Cropredy festivals as well as main stage performances at Latitude and Electric Picnic. The Divine Comedy play:
