An evening with Ian McCulloch – from Echo and the Bunnymen – is being hosted by The Pad Presents later this month.
Formed in Liverpool in 1978, Echo and the Bunnymen grew to become one of the UK’s most popular indie rock bands from the UK along with the likes of The Smiths, New Order and Teardrop Explodes.
As the Bunnymen, they clocked up some of the finest albums of the 1980s including Porcupine, Heaven Up Here and the iconic Ocean Rain.
A return in the 1990s saw a rebirth of the band with another hit ablum, Evergreen. Along the way the band trailed a string of classic singles such as The Cutter, Seven Seas, Bring on the Dancing Horses, The Killing Moon, Lips Like Sugar and Nothing Lasts Forever.
As part of a low key tour, iconic front man Ian McCulloch will be giving a rare solo performance at Bedford Corn Exchange in a fully seated semi acoustic show and will feature stripped down versions of classic Bunnymen tracks as well as songs from his own solo catalogue, such as Candleland and Ghost Stories.
This is a one-off chance to experience the sounds of a true icon of British indie music.
You can hear from Ian McCulloch when he arrives in Bedford on Friday, March 20, with the doors opening at 7.30pm.
The show will be fully seated and will feature a guest support.
Tickets are £18.50 in advance and on sale from www.thepadpresents.com and www.bedfordcornexchange.co.uk
