Galway outfit The Saw Doctors have announced their first Dublin gig in six years.
The rockers are set to play the 3Olympia Theatre on Friday, October 27th.
"Davy, Leo and The Saw Doctors last played 3Olympia Theatre in March 2017 when they sold out three nights at the intimate Dublin venue," their website reads today.
The show will follow a busy summer for the band, with two Big Top concerts at this year's Galway Arts Festival, a set at Glastonbury, and sold-out shows in both New York and Boston in July on the schedule. They'll round out the summer with a gig on home soil at Electric Picnic in Stradbally in September.
The Tuam homecoming show, 'The West's Awake', will take place on Saturday, August 19th 2023.
Following a five year break from touring, the group played a run of "comeback" gigs in the UK last winter, including sell-out shows at the Manchester Apollo and London's Brixton Academy.
The Saw Doctors currently feature original members and songwriters Davy Carton and guitarist Leo Moran. In their multiple decades as a group, they've produced hits like 'N17', 'I Useta Love Her', 'Red Cortina' and 'To Win Just Once'.
The Saw Doctors scored a surprise chart success when the vinyl release of the band’s debut album If This Is Rock And Roll, I Want My Old Job Back landed at No.3 in the Irish Album charts in August 2021. The Saw Doctors debut album was first released in 1991, going straight to No.1 in the Irish Charts with the singles, ‘I Useta Lover’ topping the charts for nine weeks and ’N17’ climbing to No. 2 in the charts.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release their debut album, The Saw Doctors produced a 20-page souvenir booklet to accompany a vinyl reissue. The booklet included stories and memories from band members, Pearse Doherty, John Burke, John Donnelly, Davy Carton and Leo Moran on the writing and recording of the debut album in Loco Studios in Wales, as well as archive photos by Frank Miller from the debut album photo shoot in Galway in March 1991.
