The Proclaimers Announce 2023 Tour Dates

Tickets on general sale from Friday 21st October.

Following on from their sold out 35-date tour of the UK, Scottish pop duo The Proclaimers announce they will be returning to Australia in early 2023 for a national tour. They kick off their tour in Perth on the 24th February 2023. Tickets on general sale from Friday 21st October here .

LATEST NEWS

Friday 24th February - Perth - Perth Concert Hall Sunday 26th February - Darwin - Entertainment Centre Tuesday 28th February - Cairns - Performing Arts Centre, Cairns Thursday 2nd March - Brisbane - QPAC Concert Hall Friday 3rd March - Gold Coast - Theatre 1, HOTA Saturday 4th March - Sydney - State Theatre Tuesday 7th March - Hobart - Odeon Theatre Thursday 9th March - Melbourne - Athenaeum Theatre Friday 10th March - Melbourne - Athenaeum Theatre Saturday 11th March - Adelaide - tbc "We're really glad to be heading back to Australia. A truly great nation with audiences who've been supporting us since we first toured the country in 1989" - Craig & Charlie Reid, The Proclaimers

Twins Craig and Charlie Reid and their superb four-piece band will perform all their big hits including 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)', 'I'm On My Way', 'Sunshine on Leith', 'Letter From America' and favourites from across their entire career including songs from new album Dentures Out. September 2022 saw The Proclaimers release their 12th studio album Dentures Out, recorded at the legendary Rockfield Studios in Wales with producer Dave Eringa. James Dean Bradfield from the Manic Street Preachers guests on two songs.

Kicking off a 14-month World tour with a main stage appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival in June, followed by a series of summer festivals and regional concerts, The Proclaimers have nearly sold out all 35 dates on their upcoming UK and Ireland tour between October and December.

Strikingly individual, twin brothers Craig and Charlie Reid emerged 31 years ago with their debut album This Is The Story and Top 3 single 'Letter From America'. Since then, their enduring appeal across generations has, over the years, seen them enjoy huge success across the globe.

The Proclaimers have carved out a niche for themselves in the netherworld where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide. Their songs are timeless, capturing a gamut of human emotions, written with poignancy, emotional honesty, political fire and wit. Their songs feature at weddings, funerals and everything in-between.

Born in Leith in 1962, the brothers grew up in Edinburgh, Cornwall, and Auchtermuchty in Fife. At home, they listened to early rock n' roll and country greats such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Merle Haggard and Hank Williams. At school, they played in punk bands and formed The Proclaimers in 1983. With a fervent live following growing in Scotland, their first big break came in 1986 when they were invited to tour with The Housemartins.

In subsequent years, they have enjoyed Gold and Platinum singles and albums in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. They have even inspired a musical, the play and film Sunshine on Leith.

The Ghost inside - Searching For Solace

The Proclaimers, Hastings NZ, 2023

The Proclaimers

22nd march 2023 toitoi, hastings, new zealand..

Review by Rob Harbers . Photography by Andrew Caldwell .

In the mid-80s, 2 sets of brothers with the surname of Reid, both from Caledonian climes, appeared on the musical landscape. Both of them authentically, but in very different fashions, expressed the sound of their background. The first to emerge were Jim and William, the force behind The Jesus and Mary Chain , who in their devotion to noise and feedback conveyed the grimness of a Glaswegian upbringing.

A year or two later, there emerged from Edinburgh the Proclaimers, with twins Charlie and Craig being initially known for their heavily accented vocals, their manifesto best expressed in early single ‘Throw the R away’. It’s probably highly unlikely that Jim and William will ever conduct a wide-ranging tour of Aotearoa, but Craig and Charlie have done so several times, and are currently nearing the end of their latest sojourn, with gigs in Hamilton and Auckland still to come, closing out the trip. But tonight it was the turn of Hastings’ ToiToi to host them, and if the reception they received is anything to go by, they’ll be welcomed back anytime!

First up, it fell to The Bads to get the crowd warmed up. This duo were the subject of my first live review for this site , and after a century of reviews and 2.5 years, we’ve come full circle! Unfortunately though, due to an overly bright sound mix, tonight’s performance failed to impress as much, despite their best efforts. While the dynamics suited Brett’s expansive guitar stylings, Dianne’s vocals weren’t able to be fully appreciated in this setting – which was a bit of a shame, given their expressive purity. In any case, they likely acquired a few new fans tonight, aided by Dianne’s expression of appreciation for being able to play in this setting, given the events of the last month or two – a sentiment that was enthusiastically received.

With the predominantly silver-haired audience having wet their whistles, it was then the turn of the Brothers Reid to take their place on the stage. Once they did, it was at a flat out, balls to the wall pace – if they were going to be walking a thousand miles, they were going to get there quickly! How quickly? They performed 24 songs in their hour and a half appearance – nae feckin aboot for these lads! This carried the crowd through much unfamiliar material, giving none the chance for ennui, although sometimes at the expense of clarity – a case in point being ‘Cap In Hand’, their early questioning of the state of the union, the wry lyrics of which got a little lost in the rush.

The highlight, for me, was a beautiful rendition of ‘Sunshine On Leith’, burnishing yet further the emotional depth of the original. This led in, via ‘I Met You’ from the same album, to the two songs that everyone was there for, and I suspect for a few present were possibly about the extent of their repertoire knowledge, namely ‘I’m On My Way’ and ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’, both of which got almost everyone on their feet. This brace closed out the main set, before a two-song encore, sadly not including the one I most wanted to hear, namely the aforementioned ‘Throw The R Away’, but regardless of my disappointment, pleasing the audience in any case.

Albeit that it was displayed at an accelerated pace, the talent of the backing musicians (the ones who aren’t brothers) was clearly evident, each being given ample opportunity to shine, while complementing the songs perfectly. So all in all, a great night out, with a band on top form, performing a huge setlist, with at least one or two songs to get you on your feet – what more do you need? As mentioned earlier, two more cities are yet to host, with Tamaki Makaurau’s Powerstation featuring a second show on Friday 24th (the original on the 25th having sold out), before the final gig on the 26th at Kirikiriroa’s Globox Arena. Residents of these areas – regard this as your warning of an opportunity not to be missed, and get there!

The Scottish pop-rock duo The Proclaimers, known for their hits “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” and “Letter from America”, have recently cancelled several tour dates. This has led to speculation and questions from disappointed fans about why the Craig and Charlie Reid have pulled out of these concerts. There are a few key factors that help explain the cancellations.

Charlie Reid’s health issues

One major reason is that Charlie Reid has been suffering from health problems that have made touring difficult. Back in 2021, it was revealed that Charlie had a serious eye condition that affected his vision. He ended up having multiple operations and this prevented The Proclaimers from touring for a period of time. Though Charlie’s condition has improved, ongoing health vulnerabilities have impacted the band’s ability to handle a heavy touring schedule. Fans’ hopes for a fully energized worldwide tour have been tempered by the need to accommodate Charlie’s condition.

Craig Reid’s side projects

In addition to Charlie’s health, Craig Reid has taken on some side projects in recent years that have made extensive touring more difficult. Craig co-wrote the music and lyrics for the popular stage musical version of the movie Sunshine on Leith. The show premiered in 2007 and feature many Proclaimers songs, and Craig has remained actively involved through revisions and new productions of the musical. Between the show and other musical ventures, Craig has had less time to devote to The Proclaimers full-time. Reduced availability has forced the band to be more selective about booking long tours.

Focus on new album

The Proclaimers released their 11th studio album Dentures Out in September 2022. It is their first album of new songs in about 6 years. The duo has spoken about how they want to spend more time promoting this latest project. International touring made it hard to commit to television appearances and interviews that would support and publicize the new music. Saying no to touring allows The Proclaimers to focus on generating interest in the Dentures Out album through media coverage and smaller promotional events.

Changes in the music industry

Broader changes in the music business have also impacted The Proclaimers’ touring plans. The rise of music streaming and declines in revenue from recorded music have put more financial pressure on bands to generate income from live performances. However, the market has become saturated with constant touring from artists. Established acts like The Proclaimers have to be more selective in booking profitable concerts rather than relying on endless touring. Reducing tour stops is an adaptation to the modern music landscape.

Recent Tour Cancellations and Disappointed Fans

The Proclaimers most recently cancelled shows set for late 2022. These included dates across the UK in cities like Hull, Liverpool, Sheffield, Oxford, and Salisbury. The shows were meant to make up a portion of the band’s 2022 tour in support of their Dentures Out album. Concerts originally scheduled for Ireland and continental Europe in 2022 were also pulled.

These cancellations have elicited disappointment and complaints from loyal Proclaimers supporters who had been eagerly anticipating the band’s return to the road. Fans have taken to social media to express sadness about postponed shows in their cities. Some had booked travel and accommodations and were frustrated by what they saw as a lack of notice from The Proclaimers about the cancellations. There is a sense that constant health issues are preventing the band from meeting their touring commitments.

However, other fans have posted their support and understanding, sending good wishes to Charlie especially. They want the band to take the time needed to recover rather than push themselves too hard. This contingent of supporters has urged disappointed fans to have patience and perspective, though there are still pleas for the band to reschedule stops in the future.

How Extensive Were the Planned Shows?

Prior to the spate of cancellations, The Proclaimers originally intended to have a busy schedule of live shows in 2022 and into 2023. This included dates across Britain and trips to other parts of Europe plus Australia and New Zealand.

Below are the number of shows that had been booked in different locations before cancellations started taking place:

The Proclaimers’ calendar had them performing across the UK in fall 2022, heading to Europe in late 2022 and early 2023, then visiting Australia and New Zealand in spring 2023. This would have added up to an anticipated 59 live shows on the tour. Most of these never ended up happening.

Looking just within the UK at cities where concerts were planned but then cancelled:

So at least 7 shows in Britain were called off, amounting to a big chunk of their planned tour dates in their home country.

Do They Plan to Make Up the Cancellations?

After the initial cancellations, The Proclaimers did state that they hoped to resume touring in 2023 and play some of the cancelled shows at later dates. However, no definite timeline has been provided.

Some key factors that may determine if and when they can make up the cancelled concerts include:

– Charlie Reid’s health outlook over the next 6-12 months. If he continues to stabilize, that increases chances for more touring.

– How much Craig Reid remains occupied with Sunshine on Leith and other projects. Freeing up more time would allow more Proclaimers touring activity.

– Plans for releasing any more new music beyond Dentures Out. If they are focused on another album, that may preclude lots of touring.

– Demand for tickets when cancelled shows are rescheduled. Promoters will want some assurance of decent sales before re-booking them.

So at this point the situation remains very uncertain regarding make-up tour dates. The band and their management will be weighing all these factors before firmly committing to a new extensive touring schedule. Their priority will be making sure Charlie Reid is up for the rigors of the road.

Impact and Reaction of Music Industry

The Proclaimers’ tour cancellations have been felt through the music industry. As a veteran band still capable of selling tickets, their absence from the touring circuit for a prolonged period has had some wider effects.

Venues and promoters

Many venues and concert promoters lost significant business from the scrapped Proclaimers dates. For some smaller clubs and theaters that rely more on shows from established bands with loyal fans, the financial impacts were felt immediately. Larger promoters also had open slots to fill from the cancellations with less time to book new acts. There is hope that rescheduled Proclaimers shows may eventually make up some of the lost revenue.

Session musicians

The Proclaimers have employed additional touring musicians beyond just Craig and Charlie Reid since around 2001. These hired hands back up the duo on instruments like bass, guitar, and drums. Cancelled concerts immediately put those sidemen out of work that was lined up supporting The Proclaimers. Depending on demand for their services from other acts, losing those bookings might have meant leaner paychecks.

Studio time

With The Proclaimers urgently focusing on their Dentures Out album, there was an expectation that they would return to the studio sooner than later. More touring cancellations potentially allow them to spend more time writing and recording new music if they desire. However, studios and producers anticipating work with the band now face a delay in those bookings.

Related businesses

Hotels, restaurants, bars, shops, and other businesses situated near venues where The Proclaimers were to perform also took a hit. Concerts generate traffic and revenue for local establishments, so cancellations subtracted from expected economic activity around those sites. Road crews, transportation companies, and live music gear rental outfits connected to the concerts similarly missed out on income.

The Proclaimers’ recent spate of tour cancellations can be attributed to Charlie Reid’s ongoing health issues, Craig Reid’s busy schedule, a focus on promoting their new album, and the shifting music business landscape. Disappointed fans were heavily anticipating the now scrapped shows across the UK, Europe, and Australasia. It remains unclear when and if all the dates will be rescheduled. The cancelled concerts have negatively impacted venues, promoters, musicians, studios, and related businesses that stood to benefit from the band’s tour plans. Music supporters continue to hope that both Reid brothers will regain full strength and stability so they can return to the world stage and celebrate over three decades of their iconic songs.
