Fisherman’s Friends are returning to York Barbican in 2021.
Britain’s ‘oldest boy band’ – with a combined age of 401 (and three-quarters) – have emerged from lockdown to embark on a new UK tour Unlocked & Unleashed in 2021.
After a previous sell-out concert at York Barbican they are retuning to the venue on Friday, 10 September 2021.
The story of the original Cornish ‘buoy band’ is known around the world thanks to the 2019 film that shares their name, and starred Daniel Mays, James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton, Noel Clarke and with cameo appearances from the group.
“We can’t wait to show the rest of the country what they’ve been missing – singing live is in our blood, almost as much as the sea,” says bass player, Jon Cleave.
Despite the global pandemic, Fisherman’s Friends have kept their fans entertained by posting weekly songs and poems on their YouTube series ‘Mares Tales & Mackerel Scales’.
They have also performed at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebration, played Glastonbury, and been the subject of an ITV documentary.
Tickets for Fisherman’s Friends: Unlocked & Unleashed go on sale Friday 16 October at 10am. For more information pleas visit the York Barbican website.
