Echo & The Bunnymen last went on tour in September this year, where they played their classic 1984 album ‘Ocean Rain’ with a full orchestra. The album contains their hit song ‘The Killing Moon’, which frontman Ian McCulloch described as “the greatest song ever written”: “For me ‘The Killing Moon’ is more than just a song.

“It’s a psalm, almost hymnal. It’s about everything, from birth to death to eternity and God – whatever that is – and the eternal battle between fate and the human will. It contains the answer to the meaning of life. It’s my ‘To be or not to be…’”

They also played at Cruel World Festival this May, where they played alongside Billy Idol, Adam Ant, The Human League, Gary Numan and Gang Of Four and headliners Iggy Pop and Siouxsie Sioux.
