German duo Milky Chance have sold out all previous Irish shows, so act fast.
Milky Chance have announced a national Irish tour taking place this autumn, taking place at Dublin's National Stadium on October 25th and Ulster Hall Belfast on October 27th.
In the near-decade since launching Milky Chance; guitarist/singer Clemens Rehbein and bassist/percussionist Phillipp Dausch have racked up more than five billion streams, headlined massive sold-out concerts around the world, performed on nearly every late-night television show, and played iconic festivals from Coachella and Lollapalooza to Bonnaroo and ACL.
Their first single, 'Stolen Dance' was released in April 2013 and topped the charts in several countries, making them a viral hit. After only playing two live shows over two weeks in 2013, the duo recorded their debut album in a simple home-made studio in Rehbein's childhood home. Sadnecessary arrived in October 2014.
Milky Chance released their second album, Blossom, in March 2017. Their sophomore LP was inspired by the experience Clemens and Philipp had in the previous two years and the two different worlds they had jumped into: touring and being home in their private life with family and friends. The band embarked on another world tour, visiting more than 26 countries and performing more than 161 shows by February 2018.
In May 2019, Milky Chance announced that they were producing their third album Mind the Moon, recording it at Ocean Sound Recordings in Ålesund, Norway. It was released that November, incorporating elements of folk, reggae, and jazz. Last November, the pair issued a surprise mixtape - Trip Tape.
The project featured two new songs, unreleased demos, and covers of hit tracks from Dua Lipa's 'Levitate' to Soft Cell's 'Tainted Love'.
The band has cited diverse artists as influences, including reggae and rock artists such as Bob Marley, Ray Charles, and John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers.
