Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbot: Utilita Arena


Head over to the Utilita Arena to celebrate Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott's new studio album ‘Manchester Calling’, due on the 6th March 2020. ‘Manchester Calling’ boasts all the hallmarks of Heaton’s beautifully bittersweet songwriting – effortlessly catchy melodies allied with an everyman’s biting exasperation at the modern world alongside some truly heartfelt love songs.

Produced by long time collaborator John Williams who produced both Housemartins albums and the previous three Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott albums - What Have We Become, Wisdom, Laughter & Lines, and Crooked Calypso  - the record was recorded at Blueprint Studios in Salford, Manchester. Paul Heaton’s lyrics were written in various locations in North Holland and Belgium while the music was composed in a hotel in Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria and in Limburg An Der Lahn in Germany.

To coincide with the album release Paul, Jacqui and the band will be embarking on a tour of the UK in April & May including Utilita Arena Newcastle Saturday 18th April 2020.

Make sure catch Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbot at the Utilita Arena!
