Neil Hannon

The Divine Comedy present their new album at Palau de la Música

The Millennium Festival is bringing Neil Hannon and his group to Barcelona.

After six years without new releases, The Divine Comedy have made Foreverland, which was released last September and which the band is now touring around Europe. Barcelona’s Millennium Festival, which has been bringing great names to Barcelona for 18 years now, is bringing Neil Hannon and his band to the city’s Palau de la Música on Wednesday 8 February.

The new album shows that the band is still in good shape, featuring twelve tracks including songs like Catherine the Great, How Can You Leave Me on my Own and To the Rescue that are set to become new classics for the group. Combining romanticism and irony, the album takes on themes like eternal love and happiness, together with Hannon’s characteristic literary and historical references.

The concert will also be a great opportunity to reacquaint yourself with 25 years of the band’s history, marked by classic chamber pop albums like Promenade, Casanova, Regeneration and Bang Goes The Knighthood and songs like Something for the Weekend, National Express, A Lady of a Certain Age and At the Indie Disco.
