Divine Comedy in Letchworth
National pop treasures The Divine Comedy will be playing a free gig in Letchworth on Bank Holiday Monday.
Neil Hannon, who penned the funny, insightful and wistful British anthems National Express, Something For The Weekend and Becoming More Like Alfie, will be popping along to David’s Music on May 31 to play songs from his new album Bang Goes The Knighthood, released the same day.
After the much-acclaimed cricket concept album The Duckworth Lewis Method released last year, he returns to the eccentric, slightly warped world of characters that infuse his songs.
Talking about At The Indie Disco, the first single from his tenth album, Neil said: “I thought I was writing a catchy little pop song for kids. Then a friend said it really took them back to their dim and distant youth. Turns out I’m a social historian.”
As well as new material, Neil has promised to perform old favourites as well.
