IRELAND’S FAVOURITE pop-rock band The Coronas have just announced that they will play the Róisín Dubh on Thursday February 12 at 8pm and tickets go on sale on Friday at 9am.
The band, whose last visit to the city saw them play the Galway International Arts Festival Big Top, and who now fill large venues in Britain, are treating Galwegians to an up close and personal, intimate show in the Dominick Street venue. On the night, they will play music from their latest album The Long Way, which includes the single ‘Just Like That’:
Undoubtedly they will also play old favourites like ‘Grace, Don’t Wait!’, ‘San Diego Song’, and ‘Heroes Or Ghosts’, which the audience will no doubt be singing along to. What is it like for The Coronas to have hundreds of people singing one of their own songs back at them?
“As a songwriter it’s unbelievable,” guitarist Dave McPhillips told me when I interviewed the band on a previous occasion. “People ask ‘Are you not sick of singing 'San Diego Song’?’ and we would if it didn’t get the reaction it does. The buzz of having the crowd singing the song will never get old.”
Tickets will be available from www.roisindubh.net, the Ticket Desk at OMG Zhivago, Shop Street, and The Róisín Dubh.
