Dexys to take One Day I'm Going To Soar to London's West End for 2013 residency
Kevin Rowland's band to perform a five-night run of the album at Duke of York Theatre, tickets on sale now
One of the most warmly-received albums of 2012 was the long-awaited release from Dexys. Having dropped their Midnight Runners suffix, Kevin Rowland's cherished outfit delivered a comeback to beat all comebacks, despite (or because of) being some 27 years in the making (sort of, give or take a misunderstood solo project from Rowland himself). No-one could have been prepared for such a renaissance, perhaps not even Kevin himself.
After the release of "One Day I'm Going to Soar", Dexys went on tour with it, playing standard shows in the usual type of venue best suited to large-scale concerts and classical recitals. However, even with these sold-out performances, Rowland's brain-cogs were clearly grinding away, planning something rather special - something more theatrical.
And thus, the idea of performing the entire album in sequence, in a West End theatre, was born. Ladies and Gentlemen, be upstanding for Dexys, appearing at the Duke of York Theatre in April for a five-night residency. It makes so much sense - the recent concerts already had an element of theatre about them, so why the Hell not?
The Duke of York Theatre in St Martin's Lane should prove to be a worthy venue to witness "One Day I'm Going to Soar", plus additional Dexys classics such as "Geno" included as a sweetener. You can imagine that "She Got a Wiggle" and "I'm Always Going to Love You" will translate well on the big stage.
Tickets on sale now. The shows will take place from 15th to 20th April and will cost £26 and £41 depending on seats.
