Speaking on the tour news, renowned front man Ian McCulloch said: “Well then, here are the dates for our 2021 U.K. tour!”

“I can’t wait to be out there with the band on all those stages in all those cities and towns, doing what I love most, playing our magical songs to our brilliant fans and, hopefully, making all our lives a little bit happier along the way”.

Kicking things off at Sheffield City Hall on May 7, Echo and the Bunnymen will play songs from many of their seminal albums, including Crocodiles, Heaven Up Here, Porcupine and Ocean Rain.

Such albums have been a primal influence on bands such as Coldplay, The Killers and The Flaming Lips.
