Folk rock legends The Waterboys are pleased to announce their biggest Belfast headline show to date at Custom House Square, Belfast on Sunday 18th August 2024.
The Waterboys have been led by Scottish singer, songwriter and guitarist Mike Scott since the mid 1980s and have evolved through countless line-ups, winning a fearsome concert reputation along the way. Their best-known songs include The Whole Of The Moon, How Long Will I Love You, This Is The Sea and Fisherman’s Blues. Indisputably one of the best live bands in the world, the 2024 version of The Waterboys features double keyboard players Brother Paul from Memphis and James Hallawell from London, and is grounded by killer Irish rhythm section Aongus Ralston (bass) and Eamon Ferris (drums). They reconfigure music from all stages of the band’s career, from the early “big music” and the roots-inspired Fisherman’s Blues era, to the run of in-form genre-fluid records that have poured out since 2015’s swaggering Modern Blues, taking in soul, funk, country-rock and any other kinds of music they care to play. Expect drama, improvisation, musical fireworks and Waterboys classics.
