Echo And The Bunnymen: Ocean Rain Uk Tour 2011

Echo And The Bunnymen Ocean Rain UK Tour
 
“I’ve  lost and I’ve gained and while I was thinking. You cut off my hands when I wanted to twist. If you know how to dance to Boney Maroney he’s doing the ballet on both of his wrists” (My Kingdom. Ocean Rain 1984)
          
Echo & the Bunnymen are to perform their classic album “Ocean Rain” across the country this autumn. 
In celebration of the band’s 30th anniversary two years ago performing Ocean Rain in its entirety they undoubtedly captured just how influential and highly regarded the band are. They played sold out shows to rapturous audiences at London’s historic Royal Albert Hall and Radio City Music Hall in New York, plus a homecoming gig at Liverpool Echo Arena.
Released in 1984, Ocean Rain was Echo & the Bunnymen’s fourth album and is widely considered to be their masterpiece. It mesmerised Bunnymen fans and broke them to a much wider audience on the strength of such towering songs as “Silver”, “Seven Seas” and the unforgettable “The Killing Moon.” 
What’s so special about this show is that “Ocean Rain” is to be played, in its entirety accompanied by strings.
