Aberdeen date for iconic Indie band Primal Scream

Legendary Indie rockers Primal Scream are to rock Aberdeen’s Music Hall this summer as part of a UK tour.

The influential Scots band will play the city centre venue on Friday, June 15, with special guests, and tickets for the gig go on sale this Friday (April 20) online at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall and His Majesty’s Theatre.

Aberdeen Performing Arts press manager Joyce Summers said: “Primal Scream have a legion of fans right across the North-east who will be clamouring to see them play live again.

“Not only were they one of the most influential bands on the 80s Indie pop scene, they have maintained their reputation as one of the best live acts on the music scene today.”

Originally formed in 1982 in Glasgow by Bobby Gillespie and Jim Beattie, now based in London, the band’s career did not take off until Gillespie left his position as drummer of The Jesus and Mary Chain.

They were a key part of the 80s indie pop scene, but eventually taking on more psychedelic and then garage rock influences, before incorporating a dance music element to their sound. Their 1991 album Screamadelica broke the band into the mainstream.

The current line-up includes vocalist Gillespie, guitarist Andrew Innes, keyboard player Martin Duffy and drummer Darrin Mooney and the band last played the city in 2006.
