See The Boomtown Rats live at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin this Dec 6th 2015

See The Boomtown Rats live at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin this Dec 6th 2015 One of the greatest bands of Irish rock music history is without a doubt The Boomtown Rats. Be there when they take to the stage for their 40th anniversary show on Sunday 06 December 2015 at the Olympia Theatre. Hire a bus for you and your family and music loving friends and come to Dublin for a truly unforgettable experience. This Irish new wave band was founded in 1975 in Dún Laoghaire by locals Bob Geldof (vocals), Garry Roberts (lead guitar), Johnnie Fingers (keyboard), Pete Briquette (bass), Gerry Cott (guitar) and Simon Crowe (drums) and initially called “The Nightlife Thugs” but soon changed their name. Only a year later their growing fame rewarded them with a contract with London label Ensign Records, and their songs climbed into the charts both in Europe and North America. Boomtown Rats – first Irish band to reach #1 in the UK Their following albums only bested their previous successes, and they became the first Irish band to reach #1 in the UK, and their classic hit “I Don’t Like Mondays” reached the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1979. In 1981 Gerry Cott left the band, and their following albums failed to reach the popularity of their predecessors. In 1986 the band split up, and after some short lived collaborations between 2008-2011 the band reunited in 2013, and is now touring the country again.

Van Morrison – Van The Man Over the years he took interest to more instruments and, in addition to guitar and vocals, starting playing the harmonica, saxophone, keyboards, drums, tambourine and ukulele. His music is influenced by many different artists from his youth, and an array of genres such as blues, jazz, gospel, folk, country, celtic, soul and rock.
