Hue and Cry
It is with great regret that South Beach Sessions along with all of the artistes booked to perform have agreed that the necessary course of action is to postpone the events planned for Troon Concert Hall between 10th to 12th September and roll them over to September 2022. We have discussed all of the issues with the bands and it is with great disappointment but unanimity that given the situation postponement was the only decision available.
The weekend planned for Troon Concert Hall featured Hue and Cry, Donnie Munro, Big Country, The Skids and JJ Gilmour and all artists have agree to move their performance to the new dates in 2022.
The organisers confirmed the cancellation today (Wednesday 25th August) and added the following statement,
“It has become increasingly clear that the difficulties in organising events – particularly indoor ones - are still with us. It has become clear that many of our regular concert goers were just not ready to buy a ticket for an enclosed venue and when we take into account the number of logistical issues relating to staff, supplies and even security it has lead to the difficult decision that postponement was the best course of action.”
“All tickets are covered by South Beach Sessions’ “Rock n Rollover Guarantee” meaning that tickets will be valid for the re-arranged 2022 dates. We would ask that ticket holders consider holding onto their tickets for next year but we understand that this may not be possible for everyone and refunds will be offered. All ticket monies are secured by Skiddle, our ticket retailer – your funds are safe!”

South Beach Sessions are delighted to welcome the wonderful Hue and Cry back to Troon Concert Hall following a superb show on their last visit in December 2019.
This is a stunning opener to an amazing weekend of live music at Troon Concert Hall which features three days and nights, two stages and features some of Scotland's most iconic acts including, as well as Hue and Cry, The Skids, Big Country, Donnie Munro and JJ Gilmour with more to be announced!
This will be South Beach Sessions first post COVID event and we plan to make it a special one. However we are only releasing 400 standing tickets in the first sale due to potential restrictions - it isn't just a sales pitch but we expect these 400 to go quickly. We may release more alter but we cannot guarantee that.
Hue and Cry
Brothers Patrick and Gregory Kane formed Hue and Cry in 1983 and the duo made a huge impact in the late 80’s with the albums ‘Seduced and Abandoned’ and ‘Remote’ as well as massive hit singles such as ‘Labour of Love.’ Albums like ‘Stars Crash Down’ and ‘Jazz Not Jazz’ ensured Hue and Cry’s continued triumph in the 1990’s, whilst the release of the hugely applauded ‘Open Soul’ in 2008 brought them firmly back into the limelight. The release of their seasonal album 'Xmasday' (2009) and live album 'Bitter Suite Again' (2010), preceded the release of ‘Hot Wire’ (2012) which received rave reviews. To date Hue and Cry have sold in excess of two million records worldwide.
2014 signalled the 25th anniversary of the seminal Hue and Cry album ‘Remote’, released to not only huge acclaim but to multi-platinum success, spawning the singles ‘Ordinary Angel’, ‘Violently’ and ‘Looking for Linda’. To mark this Hue and Cry released ‘Remote: Major to Minor’ a multi-media celebration of ‘Remote’ which comes as a limited edition 48 paged book containing four discs, including a re-worked and re-imagined version of the original album. In 2015 the brothers returned to the live scene with both their stripped format and full live band. 2015 also marked the centenary of Frank Sinatra’s birth, an artist whose career has been a huge influence on Pat and Greg’s musical style. To celebrate they recorded ‘September Songs’ a covers album dedicated to the original ‘Chairman of the Board’. 2016 was a busy year for the band, especially on the live scene with performances throughout the UK. The duo embarked on a winter tour with Paul Young and were invited to join Bros singer Matt Goss on two dates of his solo Christmas Tour. To end the year on a high the band were special guests as part of BBC One Scotland’s live television broadcast for Hogmanay.
In 2017 the band released their long awaited twelfth studio album Pocketful Of Stones to critical acclaim, gaining 4/5 stars in both the Sunday Express and The Scotsman. 2018 continued to be a very busy year for Hue and Cry who played headline shows and festivals throughout the UK and Ireland, including a British tour with fellow legendary band The Christians. The band show no signs of slowing down in 2019 with live shows up and down the country and a new album in the works.
Hue and Cry have garnered a wealth of publicity throughout their career and most recently with notable TV, Radio and Press outlets such as Lorraine (ITV); The Wright Stuff (Channel 5); Vintage TV; The Quay Sessions (BBC Scotland); Robert Elms (BBC London); Phil Williams (BBC Radio 5 Live); The Herald, The Daily Record, Record Collector, Classic Pop; Mail On Sunday and Songwriting Magazine.
The band have sold tens of thousands of concert tickets worldwide, as well as performing alongside some of the greatest artists in music history, appearing with U2, James Brown, Madonna, Al Green and Van Morrison to name but a few. The duo was recognised by their peers when they were presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Scottish Music Awards.
