The long-running rock 'n' roll group will hit the stage in Dublin in April.
Showaddywaddy, the English band renowned for their retro-inspired rock 'n' roll, have revealed that they will be performing at Vicar Street on 26 April of next year. With 23 Top 40 hit singles, including “Under the Moon of Love,” “When,” “You Got What It Takes,” “3 Steps To Heaven” and “Hey Rock & Roll,” demand is strong for these rockers from Leicester.
Though the band formed in the '70s and (with a variety of line-ups) has been active ever since, 2016 saw the latest incarnation hit the studio to record a brand new album. Entitled Next Chapter, the record consists of a collection of classic covers fused with a handful of newly written songs, all bearing the hallmarks of the inimitable Showaddywaddy style, a sample of which feature in the band’s current onstage repertoire.
The band's track record and versatility are without question—concerts, corporate conventions, festivals, universities, colleges, clubs and private functions still clamor to book the one-of-a-kind Showaddywaddy. After more than 40 years, rock & roll music is alive and kicking in the hands of this band.
Tickets for Showaddywaddy run for €35 and go on sale Friday, 13 December at 10 a.m.
