Horslips at The Olympia Theatre (photos)

Celtic rock legends Horslips performed at the Olympia Theatre on Friday night.

The Irish five-piece who formed over 40 years ago had a 10 year career until 1980 when they broke up. Even though they didn’t have a massive commercial success while they were still playing together, they are regarded as pioneers of celtic rock and their music became more and more popular, especially in the ’90s. In 2009 they reunited for two shows in Belfast and at The O2 Dublin and they’re still active since.

In 2013 the Band will have their story told with the publication of their biography Tall Tales: The History Of Horslips by Mark Cunningham.

More details about the band and their shows on their Facebook page.
