Do you know when is the best time to plan your next year adventure? Right now! And right now, there are tickets up for grabs for some of the massive gigs taking place later this year, or next year – and these are not the kind you would want to miss out on! This is little list of Just Announced Gigs for 2019:


Founded in 1993, Boyzone achieved unparalleled success in the 1990s. The group originally comprised lead vocalist Ronan Keating, Mikey Graham, Stephen Gately, Shane Lynch and Keith Duffy, and they were widely touted as Ireland’s answer to Take That. With 25 million records sold, Boyzone enjoyed chart success all over Europe, including several No.1 albums and numerous top-selling singles. Their 1997 hit, Picture of You, won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Contemporary Song. In October 2009, the band were left devastated when Stephen Gately died from natural causes at the age of 33. The remaining four members returned to celebrate their 25th anniversary last year and they are now about to embark on a farewell tour.

Catch them in Dublin 24th of January!
