The Proclaimers live at Edinburgh Castle

Saturday 19th July with special guests

2007 was an
incredible year for The Proclaimers. They enjoyed a UK Number One with the
Comic Relief release of ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)’, their ‘Best Of’ went
Platinum and they followed this up with the album ‘Life With You’, which saw
them enjoy some of the greatest critical and commercial success of their
careers. The album went Silver by the end of the year and is still going
strong. They kicked off last summer with a string of triumphant festival
appearances and then undertook their biggest and most successful ever ever UK
tour,which included selling more gig tickets in Scotland than any other single
act in 2007, over 45000 tickets for 19 sell out shows.

2008 will see
The Proclaimers gigging extensively in Europe, USA and Canada and then return
to conclude the tour with this spectacular concert in Edinburgh, after this
show they will spend the rest of the year off the road, writing new material,
hoping to be back out live in the second half of 2009.

Craig and
Charlie Reid said “Edinburgh has always been one of the most important cities
in the early development of The Proclaimers are we are delighted to be playing
this truly unique venue, we are greatly looking for to this show and hopefully
some decent weather”.

Mark Mackie,
Director of Castle Concerts earlier today said “We are especially delighted
this year to have The Proclaimers ending their most successful world tour at
this iconic venue”.

A spokesperson
for Historic Scotland said, “Historic Scotland are delighted to welcome Castle
Concerts back to the esplanade. Every year, the combination of the castle
backdrop and the concerts create that magical, once in a lifetime venue for the
bands to play and the audiences to enjoy”.
