Foo Fighters have confirmed details of two shows in Ireland as part of their upcoming tour next summer.
The band will headline Vital Festival at Boucher Road in Belfast on Monday August 19 and Dublin's RDS Arena two days later on Wednesday, August 21. The Foos last played Ireland in 2015 when they headlined Slane Castle.
The band's current live show has been described by Rolling Stone as "explosive and euphoric… wild and combustible at the place where Dave Grohl’s love for punk and classic rock coalesce into something raging and tuneful… a show of enthusiasm that has grown over decades".
Pop superstars Little Mix return in autumn 2019 with their The LM5 Tour across the UK and Ireland.
The arena tour kicks off in Dublin on 10 October, ending in Leeds on 19 November 2018. The girls will also perform three massive nights at The O2 Arena in London as part of the run.
The shows will see Little Mix perform songs from their brand new album LM5, alongside their greatest hits including Touch, Shout Out to My Ex, Black Magic and Wings.
On November 9th 2018, Aled Jones and Russell Watson, two of the world's greatest classical voices, take to the stage together for their first joint UK and Ireland tour throughout September and October 2019, performing in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on Friday, October 18th 2019.
As two of the classical world’s vocal powerhouses, Aled and Russell have received countless prestigious awards, record-breaking sales and chart successes. Over his extraordinary 30 year career, Aled's outstanding performances have made smash-hit box office history. He is the original crossover star and has sung for the Pope and the Royal Family, received an MBE, released over 30 albums - with over 10 million album sales and counting - and has over 40 silver, gold and platinum discs. After beginning his career at the age of 12, Aled became one of the world’s most successful boy sopranos, releasing 12 hit albums in 4 years with the defining moment being ‘Walking in the Air’, the hit song from the family-favourite, Christmas animated film ‘The Snowman’.
a-ha have always set themselves challenges. In 2018, their the MTV Unplugged tour proved that their songs could be given new settings and remain as alive and as impactful as ever.
Now, pushing even further, they are doing a tour in October and November 2019 stopping in the UK that will be different from anything they have previously undertaken.
Magne Furuholmen, Morten Harket and Pål Waaktaar-Savoy will be performing in An Evening With format, with an interval. For the first half of the concert, they will play new and old, familiar and less-familiar songs. Then, after returning to the stage, they will play the 10 songs of their 1985 debut album Hunting High And Low in the running order of the original release.
Back in October 2010, a-ha had played the whole of Hunting High And Low just twice, first at Oslo’s Konserthus and then at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
The tour is timed to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the release of the original version of Take On Me – issued in the UK on 19 October 1984 to reputed sales of just 300 copies. The re-recorded Take On Me was released in Britain during April 1985 to little fanfare, and in America that May where it hit big after its striking promotional video was seen on TV. It was reissued in the UK that September and, finally, the British hit came.
