Thirty years ago In Tua Nua supported U2 on the European leg of The Joshua Tree Tour. The band toured extensively throughout Europe and the US during the 1980s promoting their albums “Vaudeville” and “The Long Acre”. During that decade the band had 9 top 20 singles in Ireland. One of Ireland’s premier live acts, they shared stages with Bob Dylan (Slane), Fleetwood Mac, and Eurythmics to name but a few while also opening on stadium tours for Simple Minds. In Tua Nua reformed for some gigs in 2004 and then again in 2012 when they played The Electric Picnic. The new line up includes Rosie MacKenzie, a talented young fiddle player from Canada based in Dingle, Sarge O’Hara on keys, Dave McGinley on Guitar and Eoin Dillon on Uilleann Pipes. We look forward to welcoming Leslie and Co to our Front Row Sessions for 2018.
