Finbar Hoban Presents legendary Northern Ireland rockers Therapy? live at the Ruby Room at the TF Royal Hotel and Event Centre in Castlebar this October. Therapy? have also played with some of the greatest bands in the world including Metallica, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam.
The band formed in 1989 and since then they have gone to record 13 studio albums including two greatest hits records. They have also recorded what are considered to be two of the greatest Irish rock albums of all time—Nurse and Troublegum.
Therapy? are an alternative metal band from Northern Ireland. The band was formed in 1989 by guitarist–vocalist Andy Cairns from Ballyclare and drummer-vocalist Fyfe Ewing from Larne. To complete the line-up, the band recruited Larne bassist Michael McKeegan.
They decided on the name Therapy? because they thought it was short and easy to remember. In 1994 the band released the “Nowhere” single which picked up lots of radio play and went Top 20 in the UK. On the back of it the band released the album Troublegum. The album was a critical and commercial success and gave the band a chance to play even more gigs around the world.
The band picked up a Kerrang! award for Best Album, a Mercury Music Prize nomination, and a nomination for Best Rock Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Therapy? released several follow up albums and have toured the world on numerous occasions.
Tickets for their long awaited Castlebar show on Sunday October 27 are on sale now from Downtown Records Castlebar and entertainment.ie
