Echo & The Bunnymen to perfom ‘Ocean Rain’ at Radio City

Band plot show with orchestra at legendary New York venue

Echo And The Bunnymen have unveiled plans to perform their classic album ‘Ocean Rain’ at a special show at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

The show, which will take place October 1, will see the band joined by a 10-piece live orchestra for the performance, and will be conducted by musical director Rupert Christie, who recently helmed the live performances of Lou Reed’s ‘Berlin’.

The band are currently in the studio working on their 10th album with producer John McLaughlin. The album is entitled ‘The Fountain’ with a release date to be announced and will be preceded by the single ‘I Think I Need It Too’, out in the UK in August.


‘Ocean Rain’ was released in 1984, and re-released 20 years later.
