The Wolfe Tones Rock Electric Picnic
This announcement comes just days after the band rocked the stage at Electric Picnic, which saw them draw in the biggest crowd ever seen at the Stradbally event.
A spokesperson for the festival said, “The Wolfe Tones drew the biggest crowd ever in the Electric Arena, with fans enjoying the music inside and outside the tent, singing along to every song”.
Joined by special guests, the Wolfe Tones promise the fans a night to remember, performing all their hits, including ‘Celtic Symphony’, ‘Grace’, and ‘The Streets Of New York’, and more.
Speaking of ‘Celtic Symphony’, the track caused controversy at last month’s Belfast Féile, with TUV leader Jim McAlister claiming that the lyrics encourage IRA violence.
The band’s Brian Warfield jumped to the defence of the track, claiming that it was written for the centenary anniversary of Celtic Football Club.
Music fans also defended the track and the band, with one saying “The popularity of the Wolfe Tones and for Irish rebel songs continues unabated. Long may it continue”.
