Formed in 1975 in Dublin The Boomtown Rats exploded out of Ireland in '76 and their fast, loud, furious music and their fast loud furious attitude meant they became part of the burgeoning punk scene. Singer Bob Geldof's defiant motormouth arrogance and flagrant disrespect for authority endeared him and his band to every youth who felt weighed down by the heavy handed blandishments of church and state.

Dave has decided to come out of retirement due to public demand, for a show which will be the whole history of Chas 'n' Dave. Chas ?n' Dave reached the top twenty in 1979 with Gertcha, which became a nationwide catchphrase. This was followed by The Sideboard Song. In 1980 they hit the charts with Rabbit, which reached No. 8 in the charts and had a No. 2 record in 1982 Ain't No Pleasing You. In 1986 they had a top six record with Snooker Loopy. Chas ?n' Dave are great musicians and know how to give an audience a good time. Their fans are both young and old and due to public demand they will be seen together on stage once more.

John Mayall was, as a child, influenced by such greats as Leadbelly, Albert Ammons, Pinetop Smith, and Eddie Lang. From the age of 13 he taught himself to play and develop his own style with the aid of a neighbour's piano, borrowed guitars, and secondhand harmonicas. John met his soulmate in Eric Clapton, who had quit the Yardbirds in favour of playing the blues. This historic union culminated in the first hit album for John’s band, the Bluesbreakers, and resulted in worldwide legendary status. A succession of great musicians defined their artistic roots under John's leadership, and he became well known for discovering new talent. As sidemen left to form their own groups, others took their places. Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood became Fleetwood Mac. Andy Fraser formed Free, and Mick Taylor joined the Rolling Stones. As Eric Clapton has stated, "John Mayall has actually run an incredibly great school for musicians."

This has evolved into a powerful and disciplined twelve-piece band, capable of selling out hundreds of shows a year all over Britain and Europe.

Shane was just a teenager when the mighty Westlife formed in 1998 and in 2012, after 14 UK number one singles, 12 massive albums and numerous tours, the band decided to call it a day. For Shane, the future meant landing a deal with record giant Universal and beginning work on his first ever solo album, You and Me, which was recorded in both the UK and US.
Musically, Shane decided to mix things up with some up-tempo and mid-tempo songs, all penned by the man himself. The result is an eclectic mix of pop, soul, country, folk and even a hint of traditional Irish music thrown in for good measure. The album was released in November 2013 and instantly became a massive hit with fans and critics alike.
