The band will perform at The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe on Sunday October 16.

Since The Divine Comedy’s inception in 1989, Neil Hannon has time and again proved to be one of the UK’s best and most original songwriters. New album 'Foreverland' exemplifies this, with references to everything from Catherine The Great to the French Foreign Legion.

Neil says of the new record: "It's about meeting your soul mate and living happily ever after... and then what comes after happily ever after. Get ready for the most historically inaccurate hit of the summer."

While not releasing a record since 2010's 'Bang Goes The Knighthood', Neil Hannon has certainly kept himself busy. He co-wrote a second album for acclaimed cricket-themed project, The Duckworth Lewis Method, composed a choral work for the Royal Festival Hall's newly renovated organ entitled 'To Our Fathers In Distress' and oversaw the transfer of his musical, Swallows And Amazons, to the West End stage.

Tickets, priced £30 each (booking fee may apply), go on sale at 10am on Friday morning. They will be available from The Box Office or call 0844 8542776. Calls cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge. Please note this concert is all-seated.
