THE ZUTONS REUNITE FOR 2019 ‘WHO KILLED THE ZUTONS’ TOUR
Legendary Liverpool band The Zutons have announced a series of dates in
March/April 2019 to coincide with the 15 th anniversary of their seminal album ‘Who
Killed The Zutons’.
After quickly selling out their Liverpool show at the Olympia in April the band have
confirmed a second date at the venue on Saturday 6 th April due to high demand.
The album, which spawned the hit singles ‘Pressure Point’, ‘Remember Me’,
‘Confusion’ and ‘You Will You Won’t’, was first released in 2004 to critical acclaim, a
Mercury Prize nomination, and went on to sell over 600,000 copies (Double
Platinum) in the UK alone.
The band recorded a further two albums, ‘Tired of Hanging Around’ (including their
song ‘Valerie’, which has become one of the biggest songs of this millennium) and
their last album ‘You Can Do Anything’ in 2008.
After 8 years apart, the band reformed for a one off fund-raising show in 2016 in
celebration of their close friend, Kristian Ealey, which sparked conversations at the
time about possible new shows and new music.
Zutons frontman Dave McCabe said;
“We’ve all been off doing our own thing for a little while, and it’s only with hindsight
and a bit of space that you see how special something really is. It’s easy to take
things for granted when you’re younger, but now it’s just amazing to think of those
songs still having a place in the world, and for people to come and hear us play them
