1993 - In Your Town

93 Tour Prog Deacon Blue started 1993 with the release of their fourth album 'Whatever You Say, Say Nothing'. Two gigs at the Clapham Grand were arranged for the week the album was released, and a major tour was arranged for April. However, things started to go wrong.... By the time tour reached London again, the album had dropped out the top 40. Two more singles failed to put the album back into the charts. A tour was announced for November, but then 6 weeks ahead of the tour was postponed.

London - Clapham Grand - March 4th 1993

The In Your Town tour saw the band use a complicated set. They arranged two 'secret' gigs at the London Clapham Grand, which took place just after the release of the album. The first of these gigs is available as a bootleg, and was also reviewed by the NME.

London Brixton Academy - April 24th 1993

This was a gig I decided to go to on the spur of the moment. I was unexpectedly free on the evening of the gig, so I took a train into London, bought a ticket from a tout outside the station (the first and only time I've ever done so) and then had a really good night.
