As part of a five-night residency celebrating their 30th anniversary, Neil Hannon’s The Divine Comedy, performing as an eleven-piece ensemble, play their 1998 and 2001 albums in their entirety.

Combining bombast and longing, the surreal with the terrifying, Fin de Siècle is a wild ride. It also provided the band with their most enduring mainstream moment in the shape of top ten hit, ‘National Express’.

Seventh album, Regeneration, leaves their earlier orchestral jauntiness behind: the songs are still glorious, but with a stripped-back, art-rock edge. A more serious outlook that steps away from their Britpop origins.
