The Proclaimers are gonna be performing at theatre
Legendary Scottish pop duo, The Proclaimers, return to the region this week to perform at Milton Keynes Theatre.
Twin brothers Craig and Charlie Reid have, over the years, enjoyed huge successes across the world and will be coming to the stage on Thursday, August 13.
In April they released their 10th album, Let’s Hear It For The Dogs.
The album was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales and produced by Dave Eringa, who has previously worked with the likes of The Who and Manic Street Preachers.
Charlie Reid said: “We loved the work he’d done with the Manics and thought the Johnson & Daltrey record was brilliantly produced.

“The recording was a great experience.
“Everything went more smoothly than any other record we’ve made.
“It was great to be back at Rockfield. The band all played beautifully and we’re really proud of the album and hope that people enjoy it too.”
The Proclaimers have carved a niche for themselves where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide.
Following on from the theatre success of the musical drama featuring songs by The Proclaimers, Sunshine On Leith, the movie version was a hugely popular release in 2013.
It spent a month in the top ten generating more than £4.8m at the UK box office, making it the fifth highest grossing independent release of the year.
People going along for the concert can expect to hear the classics the band are known for, including Sunshine on Leith, (I’m Gonna Be) 500 Miles, Letter From America, I’m on My Way, Life With You, Lets Get Married and tracks from their latest record.
Doors open at 7.30pm, ticket cost £32.40 before fees.
