Dynamic Pricing Info
ARC’s policy is to set ticket prices based on demand, like budget airlines, which means we set a price when the event goes on sale and then sometimes put the price up or down depending on how the show is selling. Usually, the price will increase as we get closer to the event, so it is advantageous to book in advance, although sometimes we will put special offers on and reduce the price. Our website will always show the current ticket price.
ARC’s theatre and dance performances are priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at ARC, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.
All money collected will help ARC pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash on the door or by card at the Box Office.
After a superb performance here at ARC in 2019, the legendary pop duo return to ARC with a stripped back set. Expect all the hits and more for a show full of soulful emotion.
Brothers Patrick and Gregory Kane formed Hue and Cry in 1983 and the duo made a huge impact in the late 80’s with the albums ‘Seduced and Abandoned’ and ‘Remote’ as well as massive hit singles such as ‘Labour of Love.’ Albums like ‘Stars Crash Down’ and ‘Jazz Not Jazz’ ensured Hue and Cry’s continued triumph in the 1990’s, whilst the release of the hugely applauded ‘Open Soul’ in 2008 brought them firmly back into the limelight. The release of their seasonal album ‘Xmasday’ (2009), was followed by live album ‘Bitter Suite Again’ (2010), and 2012’s ‘Hot Wire’. 2017 saw the band release their twelfth studio album, ‘Pocketful Of Stones’ to rave reviews from the press. To date Hue and Cry have sold in excess of two million records worldwide.
2014 signalled the 25th anniversary of the seminal Hue and Cry album ‘Remote’, released to not only huge acclaim but to multi-platinum success, spawning the singles ‘Ordinary Angel’, ‘Violently’ and ‘Looking for Linda’. To mark this Hue and Cry released ‘Remote: Major to Minor’ a multi-media celebration of ‘Remote’ which comes as a limited edition 48 paged book containing four discs, including a re-worked and re-imagined version of the original album. In 2015 the brothers returned to the live scene with both their stripped format and full live band. 2015 also marked the centenary of Frank Sinatra’s birth, an artist whose career has been a huge influence on Pat and Greg’s musical style. To celebrate they recorded ‘September Songs’ a covers album dedicated to the original ‘Chairman of the Board’. 2016 was a busy year for the band, especially on the live scene with performances throughout the UK. The duo embarked on a winter tour with Paul Young and were invited to join Bros singer Matt Goss on two dates of his solo Christmas Tour. To end the year on a high the band were special guests as part of BBC One Scotland’s live television broadcast for Hogmanay. In 2017 the band released their long awaited twelfth studio album Pocketful Of Stones to critical acclaim, gaining 4/5 stars in both the Sunday Express and The Scotsman. 2018 was a very busy year for Hue and Cry who played headline shows and festivals throughout the UK and Ireland, including a British tour with fellow legendary band The Christians.
Hue and Cry have continued their stellar form into 2019, selling out their ‘Summer Nights at the Bandstand’ show at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Bandstand within 48 hours. As well as playing live shows up and down the country. The guys are currently in the studio working on a brand new album.
Hue and Cry have garnered a wealth of publicity throughout their career and most recently with notable TV, Radio and Press outlets such as Lorraine (ITV); The Wright Stuff (Channel 5); Vintage TV; The Quay Sessions (BBC Scotland); Robert Elms (BBC London); Phil Williams (BBC Radio 5 Live); The Herald, The Daily Record, Record Collector, Classic Pop; Mail On Sunday and Songwriting Magazine.
The band have sold tens of thousands of concert tickets worldwide, as well as performing alongside some of the greatest artists in music history, appearing with U2, James Brown, Madonna, Al Green and Van Morrison to name but a few. The duo was recognised by their peers when they were presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Scottish Music Awards.
