Following two sell out charity concerts last year; McAlmont & Butler have announced a full UK and Ireland tour for November 2015 where they will be joined by a very special backing band including members of The Magic Numbers and a string section.

David McAlmont - Voice
Bernard Butler - Guitar

In addition The Magic Numbers will start the night with a stripped back set as our special guests.
David McAlmont & Bernard Butler first formed in 1994 and released two studio albums “The Sound of McAlmont & Butler” in 1995 featuring the enduring hits “Yes” and “You Do” followed by 2002’s “Bring it Back”.
In 2014 Bernard Butler organised two special shows as McAlmont & Butler in aid of the Bobath Centre, assisting children with cerebral palsy. The first show, originally intended for a small intimate audience, went on sale to the Union Chapel in London, selling out in minutes via social media. A quickly announced second show 200 metres away at Islington’s Assembly Hall went as quickly. The shows were a triumphant success lauded by fans and critics alike with The Guardian awarding 4 stars and was a joyous celebration of McAlmont and Butler’s new and old songs.
Demon Records will release a re-mastered deluxe reissue of 1995’s “The Sound Of … McAlmont & Butler” to precede the tour with a long lost third album of new unreleased material penned for future release…so watch this space.
