GIAF + Róisín Dubh presents The Saw Doctors at the Heineken Big Top – SOLD OUT

Galway International Arts Festival and Róisín Dubh present The Saw Doctors at the Heineken Big Top on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th July.

The Saw Doctors will play the Heineken® Big Top as part of Galway International Arts Festival following their US Tour next summer which includes a headline show at SummerStage in Central Park, New York.

The Saw Doctors have enjoyed a tremendous run of ‘comeback’ shows this year with storming sets at Electric Picnic and Glastonbury Festival as well as sell out gigs in New York at Hammerstein Ballroom and in London at the famous Hammersmith Apollo venue.

The Saw Doctors are powered by Tuam song writers Davy Carton and Leo Moran with a current lineup that includes former Waterboy Anthony Thistlethwaite on saxophone, Kieran Duddy, keyboards & accordion, Rickie O’Neill, drums, Will Merrigan, bass guitar, Noelie McDonnell & Tommy Carton on backing vocals.

The Saw Doctors debut album ‘If This Is Rock and Roll, I Want My Old Job Back’ went straight to No.1 on its release in 1991, selling a half a million copies worldwide. The second single ‘I Useta Lover’ spent nine weeks at No.1 in the Irish Charts, going on to become the biggest selling Irish single ever.
