NvTv Presents: The Divine Comedy

Live session with Neil Hannon on piano in Belfast, filmed by Kick Out The Jams

Kick Out The JamsFollowing last year’s critically acclaimed Duckworth Lewis Method, Neil Hannon once again flexes his songwriting muscle to Olympian effect on Bang Goes The Knighthood, the tenth studio album from the slightly warped, but reassuringly recognizable world of The Divine Comedy.

Ahead of his show at the Belfast Waterfront on October 3-4, NvTv's Kick Out The Jams filmed a live session with Hannon on a piano in a church on the Ormeau Road, Belfast.

'St. Jude's Church on the Ormeau Road was a fitting venue for one of KOTJ's most enjoyable sessions to date. NI music legend Neil Hannon performed an intimate solo set for our cameras. A performance which included recent single 'Indie Disco', as well as the classic hit 'Our Mutual Friend'.'
