A very exciting moment for Tickets There as our favorite Irish band of all time, TURN have announced they are officially rehearsing again and preparing to play Electric Picnic this year. Lead singer and guitarist Oliver Cole posted the following message on his facebook page confirming the news in the last hour,
Well it’s true. Gavin, Ian, Ciaran and myself have been rehearsing with Turn for electric picnic this year.
We play the Cosby tent at 5.30 on Saturday.
It’s gonna be awesome. It sounds so good. Expect a greatest hits set. It’s good to rock
The legendary Kell’s rockers formed in the late nineties and went on to produce a number of hit singles, several EP’s and three critically acclaimed albums before calling it a day in 2006. Now they’re coming back – as a foursome. Founding members, Oliver Cole, Gavin Fox and Ian Melady are all confirmed to take part, as is 2005 era bassist, Ciaran Kavanagh,also playing an unconfirmed role in the reunion.
So far only an appearance at the Picnic has been confirmed, but in subsequent comments to the post, Oliver stated ‘there could be a couple more …()… Will keep everyone abreast of goings on’.
Are you excited? Hell yeah you are and this is going to make it even better – Ollie has also confirmed it’ll be a full on greatest hits set for the show so all you EP heads make sure you’re there on Saturday and see one of the best live bands we’ve ever produced, ply their trade as it should be – in front of thousands.
