Singer Ricky Ross said: “This will be the first we have toured without a new album in over five years and the announcement happens to coincide with 30 years of Deacon Blue so we’re going to make the tour a celebration of 30 years of the band.

"It’s an opportunity for us to plays songs from Raintown all the way through to Believers.”
