Massive news for the boys in Westmeath.
The Academic have been announced as the support act for The Rolling Stones when they play at Croke Park on May 17.
Hand-picked by The Rolling Stones from a choice of 20 bands, The Academic will play the biggest gig of their career to date as they open for Mick Jagger and co.
Suffice to say, they're taking the news well:
