One of the most influential British bands in modern history, Echo & The Bunnymen, have today announced a 16-date UK tour for May 2021 - including a Birmingham date.

The tour will celebrate the songs that have brought the group 20 top-20 hits and nine top-20 albums during a 40-year career.

Frontman Ian McCulloch said: “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.”

Echo & The Bunnymen will play O2 Academy, Birmingham, on Saturday 8 May 2021. Tickets go on sale at 9.30am on Friday 26 June here.
