Deacon Blue in Leeds: how to get tickets to the pop rockers Cities of Love tour

Scottish pop rockers Deacon Blue have announced a string of 2020 tour dates in support of their ninth studio album.

City of Love will be released on 6 March 2020, and later next year, the 'Real Gone Kid' singers will be embarking on a European tour.

Long praised for their live performances, the Cities of Love tour will see the band visit more cities in the UK and Ireland than ever before, including seven arena shows and the Royal Albert Hall in London

But most excitingly, the band will be calling into Leeds on 8 November 2020, when they play at the First Direct Arena.

"We're so looking forward to you hearing City of Love and getting out on the road, playing new songs and old songs too," said the band's Ricky Ross.

"Every time we tour now it feels like a celebration because our fans are still there and it's a delight for us. We're planning to make this the best one yet.”

City of Love sees the multi-million selling band deliver eleven brilliant new tracks tethered by a singular belief - that even in the corners of a town or a life where no light falls, hope can prevail.

How do I get tickets?

Tickets for the tour dates go on general sale at 9am on Friday 15 November, and will be available through Ticketmaster.
