The Riptide Movement – Still Keepin’ On

Posted in General Tickets There Blog, Gig Listing, IRISH NOISE!, Music, Music Video, New Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2012 by Tickets There

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.

Congratulations to The Riptide Movement and The Fallen Drakes

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, News with tags , , , , , , on May 20, 2011 by Tickets There

Tickets There would like to wish The Riptide Movement and The Fallen Drakes on landing support slots for Bon Jovi’s two RDS shows in June. The Rip’s will be support the Jov on June 29th and The Drakes will be taking the stage with Bonny on the 30th.

Both bands are former Tickets There MySpace Review subjects and we like to think that it’s fully thanks to us that both bands have managed to carve an incredible reputation on the Irish music scene over the last year. If it wasn’t for TT the whole world would fall apart and this proves it.

If you’re one of those folks that comes here for the so called ‘facts’, then in reality both bands are getting ahead because of their powerful performances and excellent music. We wish them luck in this excellent opportunity to show up the stylings of former Ally Mc Beal cast members and Def Leppard rip-off artists with their incredible energy and talent. Hopefully the thousands of natives in attendance will take note that you don’t have to look across an ocean for decent tuneage.
