Following multiple sold out shows including Iveagh Gardens Dublin on 4th July, Fontaines D.C. have announced two more shows for 2020. The Band will appear at Live At The Marquee, Cork on 28th May followed by Live At Botanic Gardens in Belfast on 29th May. Both Shows are proudly presented by Aiken Promotions and will go on sale Friday 31st January at 9am from all usual outlets.
Fontaines D.C. has been crowned as one of the most exciting live acts to emerge out of Ireland in recent years.
Their long-awaited and highly-anticipated debut album, Dogrel, was released last April with exceptional reviews locally and internationally. Along with a run of sell out shows in Ireland and beyond, highlights of 2019 also included a remarkable performance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.
With a summer filled with festival dates and headline shows, Fontaines D.C. are most definitely living up to their hype.
