Runrig keep on running with 2012 Rewired dates
The Celtic rock legends are continuing to tour their 50 Great Songs compilation with a series of autumn 2012 UK dates, tickets on sale Wednesday 28th/ Friday 30th March
Some words or names are so much more than a collection of letters arranged to prick your ears. Some, like Runrig, become bywords for something much more; a cypher for a way of life. And that's exactly what Runrig means to fans around the world.
Formed in 1973, the original line-up has of course shifted but axis at the heart of these Scottish folk rock legends remains the founding partnership; brothers Rory and Calum MacDonald. The most recent addition to the line-up, keys man Brian Hurren, joined more than a decade ago and wasn't even born until Rory and Calum were seven years into their Runrig odyssey.
Over the years, Runrig have flirted with the UK charts, maintained a solid fan base across Europe and beyond and become synonymous with solid, reliable folk-rock with live shows that can go on for aaaages. And, in-between side projects and personnel changes, Runrig has continued to prosper and stretch its horizons, playing their first US gig in 2006. In 2010, Runrig released the box set 50 Great Songs - a selection of, well, 50 of Runrig's greatest tracks with emphasis on the period since 1998 that has seen Canadian singer-songwriter Bruce Guthro as part of the band.
Runrig kick off the autumn leg of their Rewired tour at G-Live in Guildford on 20th November, followed by dates in Ipswich, Wolverhampton and at the Manchester Apollo, before the final date announced so far in Preston on Saturday 24th November 2012.
We will have tickets for the November shows available from 9am on Friday 30th March, priced around £25.
Ahead of the autumn gigs, Runrig are playing Inverness on 25th August 2012. We have tickets available now, priced £36.
