Neil Hannon celebrates 30 years as The Divine Comedy, presenting a glorious selection of songs from across their career.

Marking the release of Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time, a 30th anniversary boxset of The Divine Comedy’s recordings. They perform hits and fan favourites from across their oeuvre – the songs that marked Hannon as one of the finest songwriters of his generation.

In 1990 musical history was made when a twenty-year old Neil Hannon began releasing records under the name The Divine Comedy: 30 years, twelve magnificent albums and hundreds of spellbinding shows later, Neil Hannon is considered by many to be a national treasure.

This show comes ahead of their planned 2021 five-night residency – during which Neil Hannon and The Divine Comedy will perform ten of their classic albums in full.
