With its fusion of Irish and International music and dance, the show broke all box office records during its world première run in Dublin and has continued to set new records in packed theatres and arenas throughout the world. www.riverdance.com – Since 1995 Riverdance has played 11,500 performances and been seen live by over 25 million people in over 467 venues worldwide in 47 countries across 6 continents – Travelled 750,000 miles (or to the moon and back and back again!) – Played to a global television audience of 3 billion people – Sold over 3 million copies of the Grammy Award-winning CD and 10 million Riverdance videos & DVD

The Gaslight Anthem have announced a very special series of shows celebrating the 10th anniversary of their milestone second studio album, THE ’59 SOUND. The New Jersey-based rock band will travel North America and Europe performing the album in its entirety, including a date at Dublin’s Vicar St on 23rd July 2018. Released by SideOneDummy Records on August 19th, 2008, THE ’59 SOUND officially saw The Gaslight Anthem break out as one of the most electrifying groups, marrying their punk roots with classic FM radio scale to craft a soulful and exhilarating vision of American rock ‘n’ roll. Songs like “Old White Lincoln,” “Great Expectations” and the worldwide smash title track proved transcendent modern rock classics, fueled by heroic hooks, huge choruses, and lead vocalist-guitarist-songwriter Brian Fallon’s masterful chronicles of love, loss, and the broken hearted, of summers gone and dreams still to be met. THE ’59 SOUND earned The Gaslight Anthem rapturous reviews around the world. “THE ’59 SOUND is an answer to a prayer,” enthused Pitchfork. “When the guitars turn into chorus-firepower, it just kills because it’s been so long since we’ve heard anyone pull that off with such panache.” “Wearing their influences as badges of honour,” wrote […]

Born in Jamaica, she moved when she was 13, along with her siblings, to live with her parents in Syracuse, New York. Jones began her modelling career in New York state, then in Paris, working for fashion houses such as Yves St. Laurent and Kenzo, and appearing on the covers of Elle and Vogue.

In 1977, Jones secured a record deal with Island Records, initially becoming a star of New York City’s Studio 54-centered disco scene. In the early 1980s, she moved toward a new wave style that drew on reggae, funk, post-punk and pop music, frequently collaborating with both the graphic designer Jean-Paul Goude and the musical duo Sly & Robbie. Her most popular albums include Warm Leatherette (1980), Nightclubbing (1981), and Slave to the Rhythm (1985).
