November Gigs Recommended By Dublin Concerts
Here we have our gig recommendations for November.
We see the return of American rockers Alabama Shakes on Tuesday the 3rd for the first of two dates in the Olympia Theatre.
Speaking of multiple dates, the ‘Whole of the Moon’ singers The Waterboys kick off a four-date stint at Vicar Street on Wednesday the 4th.
If a bit of thrash metal is more your thing, old schoolers Megadeth play the 3 Arena on Monday the 9th. Their forthcoming album Dystopia is due for release in the early 2016, having finished recording it earlier this year in Tennessee.
On Wednesday the 11th, Dublin band Chewing on Tinfoil will play the main room at Whelan’s. The impressive punk rock outfit from Tallaght return to the famous venue after a bit of a break. Also at Whelan’s, Marc O’Reilly will play the venue on Thursday the 12th with a full band.
At the Academy on the 14th is the rescheduled single launch gig from The Original Rudeboys. Previously scheduled for Halloween night, the upcoming single ‘While We’re Young’ will finally get its outing.
The 17th and 18th will see the return of the Modfather himself, Paul Weller, back to Irish shores for a two-night stint in the Olympia Theatre. With a career spanning over forty years, the English music legend never fails to impress in his memorable live shows.
In Vicar Street on Friday the 20th, Scottish twins The Proclaimers return to Dublin, but hopefully not after walking 500 miles to do so. Released earlier this year, their latest album Let’s Hear it for the Dogs spawned a massive 35 date Ireland & UK Tour.
To celebrate the release of his latest album Innerstanding, Maverick Sabre plays The Academy on Saturday the 21st. After the massive success of his debut album, Lonely are the Brave, the bar is set high after several hit singles. The sophomore outing has a lot to live up to.
90s rockers Mercury Rev are set to play The Button Factory on Sunday the 22nd. After the release of their latest outing The Light In You, the psychedelic rockers will fill the Temple Bar venue with nostalgic 30 somethings. Also on the 22nd, Icelandic folk group Of Monsters and Men will play The Olympia Theatre. The ‘Little Talks’ singers are still touring their latest album Beneath the Skin released earlier this year.
Towards the back end of the month, U2 bring their Innocence + Experience Tour back to their hometown to play Dublin’s 3Arena. Bono and co. will play Monday the 23rd, Tuesday the 24th, Friday the 27th and Saturday the 28th at the Dublin venue, with all four dates sold out.
Didn’t get a ticket for U2? We have some other notable gigs on those nights to look out for.
On Tuesday the 24th, super Dublin band Jupe play Whelan’s. On Friday the 26th, Waterford group O Emperor play the Sugar Club. On Saturday the 28th, eccentric Detroit rockers Electric Six play The Academy. Also on the 28th Amsterdam frontman Ian Prowse plays The Workman’s Club and finally Dublin based Indie Rock band Delorentos play at the National Concert Hall.
So these are our picks for the coming month. Let us know what gigs you are looking forward to in November.
