Deacon Blue

Live Nation are excited to announce the forthcoming Deacon Blue tour which sees the band in Australia and New Zealand for the first time since their highly successful shows in 2019.

Thirty-five years since their debut single, ‘Dignity’, and millions of record sales since, Deacon Blue are digging out all their old 45s - the Top 10s, the favourites, the sing-along rarities and touring Australia and New Zealand in November and December 2023.

The band have always thrived onstage, but they’ve never played gigs quite like this. They’ll go electric for a raucous trip across their hits and play some of their favourites in an intimate acoustic section of the show.

Vocalist and songwriter Ricky Ross is raring to go on this celebration of Deacon Blue’s brilliant and loyal fans, roaring the Caledonian gospel from the South Coast to the Uplands. ‘We’ve decided to play a Greatest Hits show with a difference,’ he says.  ‘Yes, we intend to play all (or nearly all) the old 45s, but we also want to play some songs acoustically too.  We really can’t wait to come back to Australia and New Zealand, we always love visiting these amazing countries.’
