Northern Ireland’s finest, ASH, will perform a special homecoming 30th anniversary celebration at the Iconic Ulster Hall, Belfast this December.
This specially curated show will chart the Downpatrick trio’s success story from their formation in 1992 to the No.1 selling album 1977 to follow-up Nu-Clear Sounds, before a return to the No.1 spot with the universally acclaimed Free All Angels.
Tim Wheeler was awarded with an Ivor Novello for Shining Light, alongside his bandmates Mark Hamilton (bass) and Rick McMurray (drums). With seven studio album releases and a run of thirteen Top 40 singles like 'Girl From Mars', 'GoldFinger' and 'Oh Yeah', ASH have cemented themselves as one of the all-time greatest Irish bands.
ASH recently announced the re-issued newly re-mastered splatter vinyl of two of their beloved albums, 1977 and Free All Angels.
1977, the band’s spectacular debut album, was a defining record for '90s guitar music, reaching No.1 in the Official UK Albums Chart, and going to achieve platinum status. Its singles ‘Girl From Mars’, ‘Kung Fu’, ‘Goldfinger’, ‘Angel Interceptor’ and ‘Oh Yeah’ remain staples of the band’s live show, as they still ring out at sold-out shows and in festival headline slots.
Free All Angels was the third smash hit album from Ash, and their second with guitarist Charlotte Hatherley. The album again reached No.1 in the UK and has since become a platinum record. It birthed ‘Shining Light’, ‘Burn Baby Burn’, ‘Sometimes’, ‘There’s A Star’, ‘Candy’ and Walking Barefoot’.
ASH will be completing a run of very special UK live dates to celebrate Free All Angels’ 21st anniversary later this year, for which they will reunite with guitarist Charlotte Hatherley to perform the album in full.
Catch the outfit perform on a 14+ show on Friday, December 16th at Ulster Hall, Belfast with doors at 7pm.
