Paul Heaton is buying drinks to celebrate his 60th birthday.

Announcing the list, he said: “Here’s a list of all 60 pubs taking part in Paul’s birthday tomorrow (Monday).

"Thanks to all the pubs and to everyone who visits them. It would be great to see photos of you all enjoying your free drinks and celebrations at each pub throughout the day.”

Earlier he wrote on Facebook: “To celebrate my 60th birthday on Monday, I’d originally intended to do another bicycle tour, visiting and performing at 60 pubs across the UK and Ireland.

"However, due to recording delays caused by the pandemic, I’ve had to shelve these plans for the time being.

"Instead, I’ve decided that the next best way to celebrate this coming of age is to handpick 60 pubs across the UK and Ireland and put a given amount of money behind the bar of each one.

"Then, 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.

"If there’s one near you please head over on Monday, show your support and raise a toast to me on my birthday!”
