DEXYS - Lighthouse Poole, Wednesday 29 May

Sunday, May 5, 2024

Excitement is building as Lighthouse Poole prepares to welcome pop-soul legends Dexys to our Concert Hall on Wednesday 29 May.


Following the release of their highly anticipated new album The Feminine Divine last year, Dexys are back on the road with a new tour that includes Lighthouse for their first show in Poole since 1982’s The Bridge tour in support of their landmark sophomore album, Too-Rye -Ay album.


With more than a billion streams worldwide, three top 10 albums in the UK, two number one singles, a Brit Award and a multi-platinum selling album with Too-Rye-Ay (as Dexys Midnight Runners), Dexys are as vital and exciting today as ever.


After taking some time out to refocus his energy, band leader Kevin Rowland came back to music with a fresh perspective and new-found positivity and The Feminine Divine marks a new chapter in a book that just keeps getting better and better.


The record’s first half is full of music hall-esque swagger, much of it written with original Dexys trombonist Big Jim Paterson (a non-touring band member). The second side of the record is like nothing Dexys have done before. A saucy, synth-heavy cabaret, written in collaboration with Sean Read and Mike Timothy, it’s steamy, fizzing and sultry, at times doom-laden and heavy and at other times raunchy and funky.


A heady mix indeed.


The Feminine Divine is the fifth Dexys album of original material and was debuted in dramatic fashion, from beginning to finale, alongside a selection of classics and hits, last year on a short tour of the UK.
