Folk rock icons Lindisfarne have announced that they’ll head out on tour later this year across the UK and Ireland.

They’ve lined up a total of 34 shows throughout the course of 2020, kicking off at the Grand Pavilion in Porthcawl on March 20 and wrapping up with their Newcastle Christmas shows at the City Hall on December 18 and 19.

And while 2020 marks Lindisfarne’s 50th anniversary, the tour will also celebrate the life and legacy of founding member Alan Hull, who died 25 years ago after suffering a heart attack at the age of 50. 

The current Lindisfarne lineup features original member Rod Clements, Steve Daggett, Paul Thompson, Ian Thomson and Alan Hull's son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm.

Tickets for the tour are on sale now through the official band website. Find a full list of tour dates below
