Just watched Glasto gig on iPlayer.Wow! How I wish I had been there! Fab day and the band seemed to enjoy it immensely.Mike was as sartorially elegant as always and Steve seemed to play better than ever-if that is possible! The band are so good, it is impossible to compare them to anyone else.I'm sure they got new fans today, although some of the younger ones didn't quite know how to react to singing about this 'sh**hole..'!! Maybe they thought he was referring to Glastonbury itself, although he did explain the song before getting them to sing along.But heyho! It was an excellent gig and I am SO glad the fans managed to get BBC to cover it !!
Thanks guys for all the great music, past, present and future xxxx

Hi Mike,
We are coming to see you at the Canterbury gig in November and would love it if you played the Song of Wandering Aengus and November Tale. Love them both and the hairs stand up on the back of the neck each time I hear them played.
See you there
Adrian

THANK YOU!

Thanks to all of you who signed the fan petition requesting BBC coverage and broadcast of The Waterboys set this year at Glastonbury Festival. Thanks to your efforts the BBC has agreed to film and stream the performance, but there are still no guarantees that it will be aired as part of their television coverage.

The petition will be open for further comment to the BBC until Monday 22 June when it will be delivered requesting that the BBC include the Waterboys in their Glastonbury television coverage.

You can sign and comment at

Last night This is the Sea came into my head. I'm deaf now but, wonderfully, remember the brilliance of that song.

I wrote about it here. http://donna-tellmeastory.blogspot.com/2015/06/this-is-sea.html

Thank you!

Mike Scott: We came late to your music. We were overwhelmed by the superb show you put on May 19, 2015 at U Vic auditorium. The superb album "Modern Blues" was exuberantly and faithfully presented and the older material was equally excellent. This was one of the most memorable shows we have ever attended. The lyrics, melodies and impact make this the album of 2015. No question!

Just discovered the Waterboys this year...the Wilmington show was outsgtanding (I was embarrassed to see so many empty seats). Have turned by friends on to the music and they are now hooked too. At 61 there is always the opportunity to discover new music. May try to get to London for the December show!

I knew my first Waterboys concert was going to be great and it was even better than that. The greatness of Mike Scott is evident in his writing, singing, and playing, as well as those top-notch musicians around him. One other thing was the sound mix was perfect.

Brilliant show at the Aladdin Theater, Portland. After 30 years of missing each other, finally got to see the band (although almost got to see them in Glasgow last year on my first trip back to UK in 16 years). Love the new album. Only one complaint: no "The Pan Within"? Ah well, maybe next time...

Wow, loved your show at the Showbox in Seattle. So much energy! And so great to be that close to the band. "Don't bang the drum" was exceptional. For the last two weeks all I've listened to is Modern Blues so I was oh-so familiar with the lyrics, 'November Tale' and 'Long Strange Golden Road', stuck out for me. Love the chorus." Keep the river on your right and the highway at your shoulder". Thanks mates! Great show, my daughters first Waterboys experience and she's hooked. Can't wait for next US tour! Keep coming back!!!!

Seattle show was fantastic, crowd was too. 'I can see Elvis' came late but great !!
Love the tune. Heard it in '13 in Van, Seattle and Portland and it so stuck w/ me. Have the mates at work whistling it : ).
My dawters gone 2 of past 3 yrs to Ireland at xmas w/ her Dublin bf and all I asked was for her to see/video the H2Oboys there as they often play.

Great show last night at the Arvada Center. Despite a cool night the guys heated it up on stage. First time I've seen the Waterboys - and certainly not the last. Great mix of tracks from the new record, which is terrific, and old classics. Got a little misty eyed with "Fisherman's Blues."

Dave Heard, Canada

A tight, lyrical, fast, furious & mystical blues album! The mercurial Waterboys never fail to impress their growing fan base. For 30 years you have been a must see live act. It would be very cool if Mike hung around the southern US long enough to record a follow up album called, "Post-modern Blues." I can't get enough! Please get back to Vancouver soon!. dh

I saw the Waterboys a year ago in Boulder Colorado, It was one of the most incredible shows I have ever seen. The Waterboys rocked the house and I can't wait to see them tonight!

I saw you guys in Seattle at the Showbox a couple nights ago! I was blown away! I have to say though, while I loved your setlist, I was disappointed that you didn't play "This Is The Sea"! This song has been really significant in my life for many reasons. A family member of mine went through some difficult times, and as a 'pick me up' gift, I transcribed the lyrics in the most attractive handwriting I could muster on a blue watercolor background. My family member had it framed and has it on their wall. I also started a facebook page related to marine biology (my profession) and named it "This Is The Sea" after the song. Loved the performance, loved everything, I'm just making a small request that the next time you come in to town you might play this song for little ol' me. I know you have a huge repertoire to choose from and it must be difficult to pick from your amazing career. I loved the show, and I'll definitely be seeing you again next time you're in town!

I missed the show in San Diego on the 15th, so rode up to Ventura the following day. I'm 29 but have seen Dylan, Kristofferson, Elton John, Cohen...

May 16 at the Majestic in Ventura was the best show I've ever seen! No joke and I'll leave it at that. Cheers! Sandera

Their set last night was awesome! They teased us so long by withholding Fisherman's Blues. All the tunes were great in worth the wait. Kudos! Great band!

Still somewhat blissed out from the Victoria show 36 hours ago. We are among the folks who travelled some distanceŁ to see the band, and we loved every minute. We have realised that Mike's music makes up pretty much half of what we listen to. He is the only chap we know carrying an electric guitar who sings about the things we care about. We have wished we could see him live for years. Live in Princes Street Bandstand would be nice, but live in a room where one can see and hear the band was downright special. Thanks to Mike and today's Waterboys for a lovely evening!

Thank you for your excellent performance last night in Victoria!. I prefer to see live shows without listening to the recordings first and I feel so fortunate to have been introduced to modern blues in such an amazing acoustic auditorium. I only wish we were a more enthusiastic audience!!

My experience at the show was like what the UK Telegraph described your new album as, "likely to induce a state of rapture"...I loved the duet version of "Don't bang the drum" and when you rocked "We will not be lovers" it was overwhelming!! The venue had us seated and fighting the the urge to leap up and rock out provoked an intense emotional response complete with leaking eyes! I will never forgive myself for sitting on my butt! Believe me, my spirit was whirling and transformed. Thank you so much.

Was at the show in Pittsburgh. Best show I have seen in a long time. The band sounded great and everyone there truly enjoyed the evening. It was magic... Love the new album. Can't stop listening to it. Please come back to Pittsburgh next time your in the States.
