Three iconic Irish bands of the 90’s are joining forces for what promises to be one of the most exciting tours of the year. The Reverberation tour is the first time in 15 years that all three bands will play together on the same stage.
In 1990 post U2 euphoria swept Ireland with record labels falling over themselves to sign the next big thing, the Pods, the Sultans and the Franks did things a lot differently and in doing so were the darlings of NME Melody Maker and Sounds.
All three bands achieved massive success in Ireland and internationally and were renowned for their wild, entertaining live performances.

In this triple headed show the bands will alternate nightly and promise to play only the classics such as Power of Dreams’ "100 Ways To Kill A Love", The Sultans of Ping’s "Where’s Me jumper" and the Frank and Walters’ "After All" .
It promises to be a night of barnstorming indie classics.
