The Coronas have announced two special gigs at the Olympia over the upcoming festive period. The gigs come after the band has recently had their first number one album and played to a sold-out 15,000 capacity gig at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. The gigs will be on the 5th and 10th of December this year.
Frontman Danny O’Donoghue said the following about the band’s hugely successful year: “If you had have told us last year that in 2017 we’d start our own record label, get our first number 1 album, sell out our biggest ever headline show, and pretty much tour the world, we probably wouldn’t have believed you. We would have been happy to just continue to not have to get a real job! It’s been emotional, we’ve loved every minute and we can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!”
“We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be back in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre this Christmas for two special intimate shows! We’re just about to get on the road to promote Trust The Wire, touring in Europe, the U.K., Canada, the US and Australia, and we couldn’t be more excited! We wanted to finish the tour by playing in Dublin and what better venue to play than the Olympia! It’s been 10 years since we released our debut album Heroes or Ghosts and to mark the anniversary we’re gonna play a special gig on 10th December, celebrating that album.” We’ve had so many special nights in the Olympia over the years and we know that these shows will be no different!”
The band will more than likely be performing hits from their new album ‘Trust The Wire’. Which was number one in its first week in the Irish charts. The lads wrote the album in the Summer of 2016 in a rented house in Dingle. “It’s a beautiful, isolated place where we’ve been going our whole lives,” Danny said.
They then recorded and produced the album with producer Eliot James in Notting Hill’s Eastcote Studios in London.
