Echo and the Bunnymen are looking to perform full-on performances of their past albums Crocodiles and Heaven Up Here in 2010 while on tour.
The purveyors of gloomy post-punk are touring right now in support of their new album The Fountain, and will be in 2010, but would like to add shows dedicated to just those albums. Maybe they're petitioning for a slot in All Tomorrow's Parties Don't Look Back series?
"I want to do our first two albums back-to-back. It's a master class for anyone who's ever been in a band that isn't quite as good as the band I'm in. These albums are the blueprints for being in a cool rock band," Ian McCulloch told Spinner.
The band just released a live 2008 performance from London, titled Live At The Royal Albert Hall. The show was originally split into two sets: one as a sort of greatest hits, with songs spanning their career, and the second set in which they reproduced their 1984 release Ocean Rain with the help of a 16-piece orchestra.
