28/01/2013, Northern Scrivener: City of Culture - The Opening Concert

The most professional of the artists who tramped the stage this evening were, I believe, Neil Hannon and Damian McGinty. The latter was particularly self assured. He might not be as good a runner as either his father or his brother Emmet, but he is probably a better singer.

Number 270: Something For The Weekend by The Divine Comedy (Setanta, 1996) | GOOD MORNING BRITAIN IT
I know plenty of people who found Neil Hannon’s Noel Coward shtick, precise diction and literary references intensely annoying - I suppose you’re either the sort of person who goes for F. Scott Fitzgerald short stories set to perky guitar pop or you’re not. Fortunately I was and, while it was all ov...

“Neil Hannon was absolutely brilliant as well, the voice he had and the way he delivered it, just fantastic, as was Phil Coulter’s song at the end — it brought tears to your eyes.”

23/01/2013, Brand New Day caps an evening of high emotion - Reviews, Music & Gigs - Belfasttelegraph.co.uk

The Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon delivered a stunning, soaring performance of Sunrise, self-accompanied on a Steinway piano. By comparison, the crystalline clarity of 16-year-old Soak's Sea Creatures was touchingly unaffected, while Eurovision heroine Dana rolled back four decades with a sepia-tinted...

Chronique du concert Sons and Daughters à Derry/Londonderry.
Like Neil Hannon. Being a Divine Comedy fan, it is hard for me to be wholly impartial, but Hannon is, and always has been, the kind of artist that easily transfixes you with the drollness of his shtick and the quality of his songwriting. Merely hearing him perform the beautiful "Sunrise" makes the s...
