Already in huge demand in Belfast, Scissor Sisters have announced a date at The Village, Dublin
Love 'em or loathe 'em, there's no doubt that the Scissor Sisters are creating serious waves, even splitting Hot Press' discerning critics into two distinct camps.
While their reworking of 'Comfortably Numb' has Ronan "Single of the Fortnight" Fitzgerald tickled pink, there was no swaying Phil Udell, who gave their album a wee 2/10 and declared that "listening to Scissor Sisters is akin to finding yourself stuck in some nightmare ’80s revival night, one that places more store on the work of Kajagoogoo than the Smiths.
You be the judge on March 1 and 2 when the New York five-piece make doubtlessly dazzling debuts in Belfast and Dublin.
Tickets for the March 2 date at The Village are on sale now, priced at €15.
Meanwhile in Belfast, the Scissor Sisters (with special guests The Vichy Government and Mark) has been moved to The Limelight due to "overwhelming ticket demand ". All original tickets purchased will be valid.

With a weight of expectation, it can’t have been easy to come up with a sequel. Wisely, they’ve chosen not to fix what ain’t broke; Ta-Dah sounds exactly as you'd expect, - though on first listen it doesn’t appear to have a single as irresistibly catchy as ‘Comfortably Numb’.Read More

Ironically (or, more likely, deliberately) it takes all of five seconds before the new Scissor Sisters' single awakens in you the urge to get up and dance like a crazy sugar-filled loon. Elton John plays on the track, which is fitting as it is the most Elton John-sounding song the man never wrote himself – lots of ‘70s glam disco flourishes that should guarantee it a place at the top of the charts.Read More
