Paul Heaton is putting cash behind the bar at 60 UK pubs today

Here’s where to find them in Leeds

In honour of his 60th birthday, musician Paul Heaton has revealed he’ll be putting cash behind the bar at 60 UK and Irish pubs today.

Prior to the pandemic, he’d planned to celebrate his sixtieth by performing at 60 different pubs as part of a bicycle tour – but was forced to make a new plan, after Covid caused significant recording delays.

Currently in Ireland touring with his fellow Beautiful South bandmate Jacqui Abbott, he’s been forced to rejig his plans – and he’s come up with something sure to make him very popular.

In a move that has already seen the former Housemartins frontman branded a ‘legend’ by fans, the artist, who lived in Sheffield as a child and formed his famous band in Hull, East Yorkshire, has revealed he’ll instead be popping money behind the tills today, Monday 9 May, so that fans can enjoy a drink on him.

According to a list on Paul Heaton’s Facebook page, fans can find money behind the tills at The Original Oak in Headingley, Leeds, Lord Nelson and Riverside Kelham in Sheffield, and Ye Olde Blue Bell, The Whalebone and The Grafton in Hull.

Paul Heaton made the announcement in a Facebook post, shared over the weekend.

He wrote:  “Both regulars and yourselves can enjoy a birthday drink on me (until the money runs out, or the bar runs dry!).

“The hope is to bring people together on the day, whilst recognising that many folk who bought my records or showed me support over the years, could do with a wee party, as we come out of Covid and hit potential financial struggles.

“I’ll announce the full list of pubs and locations tomorrow, so if there’s one near you please head over on Monday, show your support and raise a toast to me on my birthday!”
