Support: Hannah White
Ricky Ross, songwriter and lead singer of Deacon Blue, one of Scotland’s best-loved and most successful bands, returns to the stage this autumn with his solo tour in support of his brand new album, Short Stories Vol. 2.
With Ricky at the piano, he will be presenting songs from across his entire career and sharing stories from his forthcoming autobiography Walking Back Home.
Ricky Ross formed Deacon Blue in Glasgow and 2022 sees the 35th anniversary of the release of their debut album Raintown. A string of bestsellers followed it, leading to over seven million album sales and hits including ‘Real Gone Kid’, ‘Dignity’ and ‘I’ll Never Fall In Love Again’.
Ricky Ross said: ‘I’ve always been interested in telling stories. Most of the stories have become songs but some stories take a little longer. A couple of years ago I started to write down some longer memories which didn’t fit as snugly into verses or choruses. I hope people might enjoy the stories as much as I have enjoyed writing them down.’
