The Saw Doctors Are Coming To Dublin!


For the first time in 6 years, The Saw Doctors will be coming to Dublin.

The Galway band who consist of original members Davy Carton (vocals), and guitarist Leo Moran, also include drummer Will Merrigan, saxophonist Rickie O’Neill bassist Kieran Duddy, as well as backing vocalist Noelie McDonnell.

This line up will take to the stage at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on October 27 this year.

This announcement comes after the Saw Doctors played a set of “comeback” shows in the UK last Winter, including two sold out concerts at Glasgow Barrowland, as well as London’s Brixton Academy and Manchester Apollo.

Not Just The N17!

2023 promises certainly promises to be a busy year for the Saw Doctors.

Before that show in Dublin, the band will headline the Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury on June 23, before hitting the stage at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom on July 7 and Boston’s MGM Music Hall on July 8.

The Saw Doctors will also headline their very own ‘West’s Awake’  Festival in their native Galway on August 19 and 20. They will also perform at Electric Picnic on September 3. 

Tickets will go on sale this Friday (May 26) from 10am via Ticketmaster. 

The Saw Doctors’ debut album ‘If This Is Rock And Roll, I Want My Old Job Back’, which included hit singles, ‘Red Cortina’, ‘I Used To Love Her’, ‘N17’, and ‘Presentation Border’, went straight to number one in the Irish Charts in 1991.

Last year, the vinyl release of this debut album landed at number 3 in the charts.
