Echo & The Bunnymen pencil in Liverpool Philharmonic following first studio album in four years.
Echo & The Bunnymen are returning with their first studio album in over four years, plus a long awaited national UK headline tour.
Famed for hit singles The Cutter and The Killing Moon, along with three Gold certified albums, Echo & The Bunnymen are one of the most seminal British rock acts in modern history.
