THE 4 OF US
FULL BAND SHOW
‘Never before have I been to a gig where the atmosphere has been so electric.’ – The Irish News
The original line-up of THE 4 OF US returns to Whelan’s on Saturday 1st December for their first Dublin city gig since their triumphant turn at Feile Classical, where they proved to be a major highlight of the Trip To Tipp anniversary festival.
The full-band gig at Whelan’s will be a chance to catch the Murphy brothers in action before they before they embark on a UK tour in the New Year and head back to the studio to record their seventh studio album.
Interspersed by Brendan Murphy’s often hilarious stories and musings on the band’s three decades in music, the band’s set list features all the old hits, such as Mary, Drag My Bad Name Down and Sunlight, as well as tracks from their recent critically acclaimed album, Sugar Island – including the radio favourite, Going South.
On TV, Brendan made an appearance this year on John Creedon’s popular Road Less Travelled summer series, giving the RTE presenter a tour of the backdrop for songs like Mary and Hometown on the Border, another stand-out song from Sugar Island, about growing up in Newry during the Troubles.
The success of this most recent album (hailed by Hot Press magazine as ‘excellent’) – along with the band’s award-winning back catalogue and inclusion in prestigious lists such as TV3’s Top Ten Irish Bands of All Time and Today FM’s Top Five Irish Singles – has led to a string of sold-out live performances and rave reviews in recent times.
