The Riptide Movement for Boyle Arts Festival




Dublin band, The Riptide Movement, will perform this Saturday (July 20th) at 10 pm at Daly’s Storehouse as part of the Boyle Arts Festival.

  With four studio albums to their name, most notably the Gold-selling, number one album ‘Getting Through’, the modern rock quartet are renowned for their phenomenal live shows and soaring radio-ready guitar sound that has drawn comparisons with U2, Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire, Joy Division, The Clash and Oasis.

  Lead singer, Malachy Tuohy, said the band were looking forward to their first ever Roscommon gig.

  “This is the first time The Riptide Movement has played in Roscommon. We’re really looking forward to it. The Boyle Arts Festival has developed a really good name and it seems to be going from strength to strength”.

  “The venue is supposed to be a cool, intimate spot too so we’re going to be playing more of a stripped-back set with a more acoustic vibe. We’re looking forward to that as well because we played a similar-type gig in a church in Naas recently and it went down really well,” he said.

  This is an over 18s event, show starts at 10 pm and tickets cost €25.
