After an interval, the band will play the 10 songs taken from their 1985 debut in the running order of the original release.

Reflecting on the band’s concerts in 2010, guitarist Waaktaar-Savoy said: “We played the full ‘Hunting High And Low’ album live once before and that was a great experience.

“There’s not one song on that album that we’re not looking forward to playing live. We had done quite a few versions of the songs before recording the actual album and they all contain great bits and cool ideas which will be nice to incorporate into the new show.”
