They will play through two decades of hits

Paul Buchahan, vocalist with The Blue Nile, has confirmed a handful of UK shows, on which he will be accompanied by former bandmate Robert Bell and a new backing band.

The whereabouts of the trio’s third member Paul Moore is unclear.

Billed as singing “the songs of The Blue Nile” the shows will showcase the band’s electro pop and ambient folk catalogue as well as new solo material.

Stretchin across 25 years, The Blue Nile have released a mere four albums:”A Walk Across The Rooftops” in 1984; “Hats” in 1989, “Peace At Last” in 1996, and 2004’s “High.”

The atmospheric pop songs and velvety vocals of the Blue Nile have amassed quite a celebrity fanbase over the last 20 years, with Peter Gabriel and Rod Stewart both counting themselves in as fans.

Paul Buchanan says of his songs, they have “always been a documentary of the imagination.”

Paul Buchanan flies solo-ish at the following venues this month:

London Theatre Royal Drury Lane (November 19)
Dublin Vicar Street (21 & 22)
Aberdeen Music Hall (24)
Edinburgh Usher Hall (25 & 26)
Perth Concert Hall (27)
