Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott announce Olympia Theatre date


Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott - Olympia Theatre, Dublin - 28 October

Following their sold out Dublin gig in June, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott announce an Olympia Theatre performance on 28th October 2014, as part of their Irish tour.

 “What Have We Become” is the new album from Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott.

The artists are very happy to work together, as they say:

Paul Heaton: “Working with Jacqui again was like going into your garage and discovering a beautiful, covered up Rolls Royce that hadn’t been started in years. Jacqui is one of the best singers I’ve worked with and is also part of my past. It was only a matter of time before I asked her.”

“I always wrote songs with Jacqui in mind. Even before I met her I pictured a voice that could carry the songs into people’s hearts in a particular way. When I first heard her sing I almost laughed because it was SO right for the songs.”

Jacqui Abbott: “It’s just great to be singing again after such a long time, especially with Paul. 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”
