Echo & The Bunnymen have just announced they are to play a special 30th Anniversary show with in Liverpool this November.

Playing with a full orchestra, the Bunnymen will reprise the entire of their Ocean Rain album as well as showcasing songs from their forthcoming new album.

The show takes place in their hometown at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on November 27, marking 30 years to the day from when they played their debut gig at the city’s Erics venue.

Bunnymen frontman Ian McCulloch explains “Because of the overwhelming response to our Royal Albert Hall ‘Ocean Rain’ show in September – which sold out – I decided that we should take it around the world – New York, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, Moscow amongst other cities. Obviously, my home city, the place I love and live in had to be there.”

Tickets will go on sale this Friday (April 4) at 9am.
