Adding to the list legends who have played in the Oriel Centre, Dundalk Gaol, one of the leading Irish bands of their generation, Something Happens will bring their Acoustic Show to the Oriel Centre on Saturday 26th October.
Trailblazers of the Irish music scene, Something Happens are regarded as one of the most iconic bands to emerge from Ireland with an enviable back catalogue of Top 30 singles and hit albums, including "Stuck Together With God’s Glue"
and "Been There, Seen That, Done That", which brought them international acclaim. They have been compared to everyone from REM to the Smiths and were signed to Virgin Records in the late 80’s. Their single "Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello (Petrol)" was included in top fifty singles in rock magazine NME such was the critical acclaim their iconic album "Stuck Together With God’s Glue" received. Their fanbase never diminished so when lead singer of Something Happens Tom Dunne curated Feile Classical 2018 (celebrating 28 years on from Feile/Trip to Tipp) and Something Happens performed, the festival sold out within hours!
The Something Happens Acoustic show in the Oriel Centre is going to one of those unmissable nights where you can expect to hear all the hits including “Parachute”, "Forget Georgia" and off course “Hello Hello Hello Hello Hello” with a few surprises thrown in. This is going to be a very rare opportunity to see Something Happens play in such an intimate venue so if you are one of their legions of fans and hope to go then very early booking is advised.
