Fresh from her huge successful turn in Mamma Mia 2 – Here We Go Again, the absolute LEGEND that is Cher confirmed that her massive tour will stop in Ireland.

It's her first show in the Emerald Isle in fifteen years, but the Oscar, Emmy and Grammy award-winner will play a sole show at the 3Arena on November 1, 2019, as part of her Here We Go Again Tour.

She will be bringing fans an array of her back catalogue of glorious hits, not to mention tunes from the Dancing Queen album.

The singer has sold over 100 million records, and has been performing for a whopping five decades.

She currently is the holder of the UK record for the biggest selling single of ALL TIME by a woman for her runaway hit song, Believe.

According to the goddess herself;

“I’m very excited to bring this show to the UK. It was the first country to embrace Sonny & Cher, and its where we created and had our first success with ‘Believe’. It’s really my second home.”

Get ready to snatch those tickets like Cher snatches our wigs and sanity, tickets are onsale this Friday December 14 at 10am, for minimum €86.


I have a confession to make… I have seen Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again three times. I know, I know, there are so many incredible movies out at the moment, but there’s something about this cheesy film that I just can’t resist.

Sure, it is pretty cringe-worthy and goofy, but the touching storyline of Sophie and her family trying to cope with the loss of Donna really tugs at your heart strings.

Seeing the adventures of young Donna unfold on screen was really moving and extremely enjoyable because I was madly in love with the three actors playing young Sam, Bill and Harry.

Okay, maybe the main reason I keep going to see this film is Josh Dylan, but it is also the friendship, the setting (take me to Greece now, please) and glorious duo that is Julie Walters and Christine Baranski.

I promised myself I wouldn’t go see the movie a fourth time, however, when I spotted this upcoming event I broke that promise instantly.

The Lighthouse Cinema is hosting a sing-along screening of Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again and I will without a doubt be there singing (badly) along to every single word of every single song.

“One of the most popular films of Summer 2018 returns for a one day only Sing-Along event! Not that you'll need any encouragement singing ABBA songs but feel free to give it loads.”

“Get ready to sing and dance, laugh and love all over again.”

The screening takes place on September 16 and tickets are available here.

This is the dream musical event. What else would you do on a Sunday evening other than sing (badly) along to Waterloo and stuff your face with popcorn?


Sundays are all fun and games until reality hits and you have to get yourself organised for another week of work. The Sunday night fear is something we all experience, but fear not, we have the perfect solution that is bound to lift your spirits tonight.

If anything is going to bring a smile to yourself tonight it’s a musical. Sometimes all you need is to curl up on the sofa and watch Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Amanda Seyfried sing and dance to ABBA’s greatest hits.

Forget about your 6am start and watch Donna and the Dynamos shimmy to Dancing Queen. Ignore the fact that you have a mountain of unwashed dishes in the sink and prance around your living room to Voulez Vous. Boost your ego by listening to Pierce Brosnan singing SOS (God loves a trier.)

RTÉ 1 are making our Sunday night a hell of a lot better by showing Mamma Mia at 9.30 pm tonight.

The movie is one of our all time favourites. We know it’s cheesy, but it’s the ultimate feel-good movie.

Mamma Mia is a musical/rom-com that will make your heart feel warm, leave your sides hurting from laughing and turn you into a blubbering mess all within the space of 109 minutes. 

It follows the story of Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) who has grown up not knowing who her father was, but as her wedding day approaches, she wants her dad to be there to give her away.

She takes matters into her own hands and invites her mum's (Meryl Streep) three former lovers- Harry (Colin Firth), Bill (Stellan Skarsgard) and Sam (Pierce Brosnan)- to the wedding. One of the three men is her father, and Sophie believes if she gets to know them she’ll find out who her dad is.

Mamma Mia is on RTÉ1 tonight at 9.30 pm.



This is possibly one of the best fan videos to come from the Euros 2016 so far.

Instead of fighting with the team playing against us, or having a bar brawl, our fans over in France decided to take part in a huge rendition of Dancing Queen, and we totally nailed it.

In the video, a Swedish fan is seen holding up speakers, while the ABBA song pours out through them, and always the ABBA fan, a whole group of Irish joined in.

See, you can't bring us anywhere:



Fans of ABBA have waited YEARS for this, and now the day has finally come for the band to reunite.

Benny and Bjorn celebrated their 50th pal-iversary, and it saw to very special guests in attendance.

Party-goers were absolutely shocked when they saw Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstand, ABBA's original members and Benny & Bjorn's former wives, take to the stage to do a performance with their ex-husbands.

Eurovision Song Contest screenwriter and director, Edward af Sillén, caused social media to go into meltdown when he shared this picture of the foursome:




In a very rare occurence (and we mean EXCEPTIONALLY rare), all four members of ABBA were in the same place at the same time last night. 

Benny Andersson, Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad all came to support former band mate Bjoern Ulvaeus in the opening of his Mamma Mia! themed restaurant in Stockholm. 

The notoriously private foursome have not performed live together since the eighties and the last time they were all publicly in the same room was for the premiere of the Mamma Mia! film in 2008.

So as we said people, this was a rare occurrence. 

However, the band did not seem to want to excite fans as they refused to pose in pictures together and shot down any reports that we would ever reunite for a live performance. 

"I don't think so," said Benny. 


However, you can head over to Bjoern's new Greek style restaurant in Stockholm which encourages customers to sing along to their favourite songs from the musical Mamma Mia!.

It looks pretty fun as musicians and actors interact with waiters and guests who are lucky enough to be dining there. Anyone up for a quick trip to Sweden?
