Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2015 by Tickets There

11949424_866958103372923_6726998859918511235_nDue to unexpected circumstances, the Deathcrusher 2015 show (featuring Carcass, Obituary, Napalm Death, Voivod & Herod) will now move from The Olympia Theatre to Vicar Street. Tickets were temporarily off sale while the move was being confirmed but are back on sale now.

Original tickets are valid for the new show. Seating will be un-reserved but additional seats have been booked for current ticketholders to ensure there’s more than enough space for groups going together to find blocks for themselves).

To be fair, Vicar street will be an ever better venue for this show. Bigger bar, bigger (or wider) standing area in front of the stage and savage sound. Can’t wait!

Thin Lizzy Line-up Announce Hiatus and Name Change for New Album

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by Tickets There

We were slow for this news, but it must be said. The current line-up of Thin Lizzy have announced they will cease touring under the Lizzy name at the end of this year. Once the band complete their European tour in December, they will officially drop the Thin Lizzy name and announce a new one next year. The band have recently been discussing a new Lizzy album but have now decided to release it with a fresh start.

Despite the name drop, frontman Ricky Warwick did state that this does not necessarily mean the end of Thin Lizzy outright and the line-up may tour as Lizzy again in the future. For now the band want to focus on their new record that they feel is strong enough to win over Lizzy fans and make former singer and all round Irish legend – Phil Lynott, proud.

Details will follow on Tickets There when the band announce further plans. In the meantime, catch Thin Lizzy when they play the last two Irish dates for a while,

The Riptide Movement – Still Keepin’ On

Dear bands everywhere – this is how it’s done!

The Riptide Movement are a band familiar to us all and well they should be. Along with a limited number of names (not starting any wars here), TRM are the epitome of hard work, performance and energy. They are a credit to the Irish music scene and spend every second they can promoting their band, making themselves sharper, song writing, rehearing, exploring new avenues of self-promotion, making videos and constantly pushing themselves higher and higher up the chain. When they do a tour, it’s not two shows, its thirty.  If they don’t have a gig – they busk. When they’re not busking they’re working behind the scenes – constantly and that work is now paying off.

The band are currently in India representing Ireland at the Rendezvous festival in New Delhi, which they’re capturing for Hot Press as their 2012 ‘Most Unusual Gig of the Year’ spot. When they get back, they start the task of promoting new single, ‘Without You’ from their second album, Keep On Keepin’ On that came out earlier this year. The promotion tour will take them around Ireland (including headlining shows at The Olympia, Roisin Dubh, The Forum and Dolan’s Warehouse) before they jet off to Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Prague, Vienna and Amsterdam.  Irish dates can be found below and you can expect to see a review of their new single…..very soon.

Oct. 27th – The Slate, Cork.

Nov. 2nd – The Roisin Dubh, Galway

Nov. 10th – The Olympia, Dublin *Almost Sold-Out

Nov. 17th – The Forum, Waterford

Nov. 24th – Dolans Warehouse, Limerick

Nov. 30th – The Palace, Navan

Congrats to the Riptide and please – Keep on setting the bar for others. If all bands worked as hard as you, there’d be a lot less X-Factor in the world.
