If your Spotify playlist Wrap Up of 2018 didn't include Why Can't We Be Friends, Bear Claws, or Permanent Vacation – you are seriously missing out.

However, if you're heartbroken over not getting a ticket, never fear.

The lads are returning this summer with a massive gig in Dublin's Iveagh Gardens.

The new gig is scheduled for July 19th, 2019.

Craig, Dean, Matt and Stephen have an insane talent for songwriting, so to see them performing their indie hits in person is an unmissable experience.

Tickets for next summer's date go on sale tomorrow morning – and with the speed at which tickets for their previous gig have gone, you'd want to be quick. 

Tickets are available for €40,00 from Ticketmaster at 9am.
