The Proclaimers

Friday, April 19, 8 p.m. at The Ark

They would walk 500 miles. But you just have to get a little off campus to see them LIVE!

Led by the Scottish identical-twin duo of Craig and Charlie Reid, The Proclaimers signed with the Chrysalis label in 1987 and quickly carved out a niche where pop, folk, new wave, and punk collide. Their songs routinely top singles charts in the UK, and they've had some major hits stateside as well — you probably know "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)."

The Proclaimers have just released a new album, "Like Comedy," and the show is one of a select group of acoustic dates offered in the U.S. to promote the release.

Tickets

General admission is $25, reserved tickets are $32.  JP Jones opens. Doors open at 7 p.m. at The Ark (316 S. Main, Ann Arbor).
