Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott to perform at The Baths Hall, Scunthorpe


Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott are set to perform at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe as part of their next UK tour – the duos’ only date in the Humber and Lincolnshire region.

Wisdom, Laughter and Lines’ is the new album from Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott. This record is the second from the duo following last year’s critically acclaimed ‘What Have We Become’, which saw them return together on record for the first time since the multi-million selling days of The Beautiful South, who released a string of successful records in the 1990s and early 2000s.

‘Wisdom, Laughter and Lines’ is a wonderful contemporary record, full of lyrical wit and humour, whilst retaining a strong social conscience that touches on the changing social landscape of Britain.

Paul comments: “Jacqui is one of the best singers I’ve worked with and is also part of my past. This new album came together easily because we work so well together. The album title ‘Wisdom, Laughter and Lines’ derives from a line in one of the songs and it sort of sums up where I am in life.”

Jacqui adds: “It’s just great to be singing again and I’m excited about playing these new songs live. We had such a good run together previously and it’s just a real pleasure to be working with him again and singing these fantastic songs.”

Paul and Jacqui perform at the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe in early November.
