A year on from the sell-out triumph of their December 2009 concerts in Dublin and Belfast, Irish rock legends Horslips are back with a new tour for 2010 and are coming to The Royal Theatre, Castlebar, this Sunday night, November 28.
Last December’s concert dates saw Horslips perform songs from their 10 albums and from the Rollback unplugged session to rave reviews in the media and huge feedback from audiences north and south.
The two concerts were flagged as must see and in response to that strong countrywide interest the band are enthusiastic about taking the show back on the road, this time to a wider audience. After a brush with illness during the summer which saw the cancellation of Horslips’ Live At The Marquee gig in Cork, Jim Lockhart is fighting fit and raring to go and Ray Fean will fly in from his gruelling tour schedule Stateside to sit in behind the kit. ‘It’s going to be a bit like the old days,” says guitarist John Fean – Ray’s brother. ’We’ll be reacquainting ourselves with room service in towns we used to play in our time on the road. This is a tour I’m really looking forward to.”
