‘Undertones’ BAF tickets go on sale Friday

Tickets for The Undertones highly anticipated concert at Boyle Arts Festival will go on sale at 10am on this Friday, April 14th at 10am.

The band will perform in St. Joseph’s Hall, Boyle on Friday, July 21st and tickets can be purchased exclusively from the Boyle Arts Festival website

The Undertones (John O’Neill, Damian O’Neill, Feargal Sharkey, Billy Doherty and Michael Bradley) signed with Sire Records and recorded their first single ‘Teenage Kicks’ in 1978.

Over the next five years they crafted further pop gems such as `Here Comes The Summer`, ‘Jimmy Jimmy`, `You’ve Got My Number (Why Don’t You Use It)’, ‘Wednesday Week’ and ‘My Perfect Cousin’. They also recorded four highly acclaimed LPs before Feargal Sharkey left the band in 1983, to pursue a solo career.

The Undertones reconvened, without Feargal Sharkey in 1999 to once again perform their two-minute, three and a half chord songs to a new generation. Fellow Derryman Paul McLoone replaced Sharkey on vocals and his vocal prowess and electric onstage presence soon convinced any doubters that he was more than capable of doing the job.
