Worthing has been confirmed as part of a select regional and seaside town tour this summer for internationally famous duo The Proclaimers.

The twin brothers will be appearing at Worthing Assembly Halls on July 2.

Craig and Charlie Reid have over the years enjoyed huge success across the globe as the sing-along raucousness of their songs and their extensive touring has enlightened and entertained fans new and old.

The Proclaimers have carved out a niche for themselves in the netherworld where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide.

In the process they have enjoyed Gold and Platinum singles and albums in UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Born in Leith in 1962, Craig and Charlie Reid grew up in Edinburgh, Cornwall and Auchtermuchty in Fife.

At home, they listened to early rock ‘n’ roll and country greats such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Merle Haggard and Hank Williams. At school they played in punk bands and formed The Proclaimers in 1983.

Among the many tracks they have recorded the most famous are “500 Miles”, “I’m Gonna Be”, “Sunshine on Leith”, “I’m On My Way” and “Letter from America”.
