The Stunning formed in 1987 in Galway and had their first top twenty single just a year later followed by two more top ten hits before their debut album ‘Paradise in the Picturehouse‘ hit the number one spot in 1990 staying there for 5 weeks.
The band was now a household name and became the soundtrack to the lives of a whole generation of people brought up in Ireland during the 80’s and 90’s. Over the next year or so, there were four more hit singles, followed by another number one album. They released a live album in ’93 before splitting up a year later.
After an absence of almost ten years, the band reformed for an 18-date tour, which turned out to be one of the highest grossing tours in Ireland of 2003. In 2012 around 30,000 people turned out to see them play a free concert in their old hometown of Galway city, a testament to the timeless quality of their music.
