Scottish rockers Del Amitri have announced their first tour in more than a decade.

With a cast of original members and even the original crew, Del Amitri return from a 10-year sabbatical to wheel out every hit from every era of their lengthy career.

Justin Currie and Iain Harvie will once again be joined on stage by Andy Alston, Kris Dollimore and Ashley Soan.

It’s been 30 years since Del Amitri’s debut single, Sense Sickness.

Formed in Glasgow in 1983, Del Amitri had four Top 10 albums and a string of hit singles.

Their million-selling breakthrough album Waking Hours (1989) included the hits Nothing Ever Happens and Kiss This Thing Goodbye.

The follow-up, 1992’s Change Everything, featured hit single Always The Last To Know and reached No.2 in the albums chart.

In 1995, Twisted charted at number three and included their biggest ever single Roll To Me, which reached No.10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Del Amitri’s most recent album was 2002’s Can You Do Me Good? and the band have been on hiatus since finishing the subsequent tour.

* Del Amitri play Newcastle City Hall on January 26. Tickets are priced from £35 from www.gigsandtours.com.
