Catfish and the Bottlemen today add a new live date to what’s becoming an epic summer of performances for the multi Platinum-selling, BRIT Award-winning, arena-filling giants. Returning to Ireland for the first time in five years, they will play Dublin’s RDS Simmonscourt on Saturday, 31st August. The show is a welcome reunion with one of the band’s most vociferous fanbases, and excitement is set to be at an all time high for their first visit since 2019. Tickets go on general sale at 10:00 BST this Friday, 10th May here. Sign up for presale tickets here.


Catfish and the Bottlemen

The announcement of the Dublin concert follows the news of Catfish and the Bottlemen selling out their biggest ever show, at Liverpool’s 32,000 capacity Sefton Park, just a week after going on sale. The Liverpool show comes ahead of three huge open air shows in Cardiff and Edinburgh, announced last month, both of which went on to sell out in minutes, as well as their epic return to the Reading & Leeds Festival mainstage, which they headline for the second time.


Catfish and the Bottlemen’s arena-filling sonic outlook has cemented their place amongst Britain's most successful bands of the 21st Century. Signing to Island Records in 2014 after years of relentless touring, their debut LP The Balcony surged into the UK Top 10 and helped them scoop British Breakthrough Act at the BRITs before scoring their landmark #1 album with The Ride. Since then they’ve amassed over one billion streams, two million album sales and are closing in on 10 million single sales. On stage Van McCann possesses unique magnetic energy, and is considered one of modern rock’s great live frontmen. In the five years since releasing their debut album, they’d sold over half a million tickets, and have played to over 2 million people.


With the anthemic, stadium-ready new single ‘Showtime’, and an epic live summer ahead of him, Van McCann is back where he’s meant to be: headlining festivals, finishing a brand new album, and beginning a dynamic, exciting new era for Catfish and the Bottlemen.
