THE WATERBOYS have announced a welcome return to Antipodean shores this March for a series of headline shows.

Coinciding with today’s release of their eleventh and highly anticipated new album, Modern Blues, The Waterboys return for their second-ever Australia/New Zealand tour, and will head to Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland, with tickets for all shows going on sale at 10am next Friday, January 30.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the pre-sale beginning at midday, Thursday January 29. For complete details visit: www.livenation.co.nz

“People should expect the unexpected from The Waterboys,” says Mike Scott. It’s a mission statement which has inspired three decades of compelling musical shape-shifting, and one which yields thrilling results on The Waterboys’ latest album, Modern Blues. Applauded with a 4-star review by Rolling Stone, Modern Blues is released today (through Kobalt).

A freewheeling rock and roll record with a southern soul edge, Modern Blues was recorded in Nashville by a line-up including Muscle Shoals legend David Hood on bass, Austin guitar-slinger Zach Ernst and Memphis keyboard wizard Brother Paul, all of whom play in the 2015 touring line-up of the band. They join Mike Scott, Irish electric fiddle great Steve Wickham and ace drummer Ralph Salmins at a time when the relevance and popular reach of The Waterboys has never been greater.
