Scottish Supergroup Love and Money start UK Tour at The Met

The Met welcomes Love and Money on Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 September at 8pm.

Following their triumphant Celtic Connections sell out show at The Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow, one of the biggest and best bands ever to have come out of Scotland, Love and Money, featuring Met favourite James Grant will perform a short tour of the UK starting right here in Bury.

This follows the Scotsman\’s ranking of their 1991 third album, Dogs in the Traffic, at No. 30 in the all-time top 100 albums, and last April\’s re-release of their second, 1988\’s 250,000-selling Strange Kind of Love. \”I\’ve always tried to make music that you can keep going back to and keep finding things within it,\” said frontman and songwriter James Grant in a recent interview, a comment abundantly borne out by Love and Money\’s mercurial, edgily literate amalgam of soul, rock, jazz, funk, blues and country.

Expect a set chock full of classic songs like Winter, Lips Like Ether, Last Ship On The River, Jocelyn Square, Halleluiah Man and Strange Kind Of Love.

Tickets are £22 seated or £20 standing. For more information and to book phone The Met on 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
