Idlewild announced their intimate show in the Scottish village of Ullapool. This place is well known as the recorded parts of their third album, ‘The Remote Part’ which was released in 2001. The show will be treated as the 20th-anniversary show of their ‘The Remote Part’ album.
The band has decided to perform all the tracks from the album. Alongside they are planning to play the other songs from their back catalogue. The event will take place next September and tickets will be available soon for sale.
The musical band shared a statement that stated, “‘The Remote Part’ was largely all written in a cottage in Inchnamaph, Sutherland, just north of Ullapool. It is a record all about finding your own place in the world, and the wide-open highland landscape and sense of space and emptiness provided much of the inspiration and context for this collection of songs that went on to become the band’s most well-known.”
They also wrote, “To celebrate the 20th anniversary of ‘The Remote Part’, we’re delighted to be traveling north to play a show (almost) where all the songs initially came to life.” The Scottish indie veterans had originally intended to make the tour in 2020 to celebrate their 25 years together. But they were forced to postpone due to the coronavirus pandemic.
