An Appointment With Mr Yeats
On their long-awaited first visit to Sydney, Mike Scott and The Waterboys perform An Appointment with Mr Yeats, a tribute to poet and mystic WB Yeats, along with favourites from the band’s acclaimed 30-year career.
Scott describes Yeats’ words as “precise, elegant, and a gift to sing” and the project is the culmination of a decades-long dream to take the work of Ireland’s most revered poet and place it in a rock‘n’roll context.
Far from a polite interpretation, Scott and his bandmates breathe fire and Telecaster-driven fervour into Yeats’ poems.
Please note: no support acts.
