Chart-topping duo, formerly of The Beautiful South
Paul Heaton is one of the UK's most successful songwriters with well over 15 million album sales under his belt. He first came to public attention in the early '80s as the frontman of Hull-based indie-pop band The Housemartins, who are best known for their third single Happy Hour and their No.1 acapella cover of The Isley Brothers' Caravan Of Love.
In 1988 Heaton formed The Beautiful South, which released 10 hugely successful albums – from 1989's Welcome To The Beautiful South to 2006's Superbi. Jacqui Abbott was lead vocalist for some time in The Beautiful South and she sang many of their signature hits including Rotterdam, Don't Marry Her and Dream A Little Dream.
Heaton released his first solo album, Fat Chance, in 2001, and went on to release two further solo albums: 2008's The Cross-Eyed Rambler and 2010's Acid Country.
In 2011, Heaton wrote a musical called The 8th based on the seven deadly sins and asked Abbott to sing one of the parts. They went on to release three top five-charting albums as a duo: 2014's What Have We Become, 2015's Wisdom, Laughter And Lines and 2017's Crooked Calypso.
Heaton put together a career-spanning collection of his music in 2018 – from The Housemartins and The Beautiful South to his solo and duo work – titled The Last King Of Pop.
In early 2020, Heaton and Abbott collaborated once again and unveiled their fourth studio album, Manchester Calling. Boasting beautifully bittersweet songwriting and themes of anti-growth and anti-greed, it scored the pair their first No.1 position on the official UK albums chart.
To support the new album, Heaton and Abbott confirmed a performance at Manchester's Castlefield Bowl as part of Sounds Of The City in July 2021, plus they rescheduled dates for their UK headline tour to October 2021.
