Boomtown Rats Tickets

The Boomtown Rats will release a new hits collection on August 5th ’13. Entitled ‘Back To Boomtown: Classic Rats’ Hits’ it will feature all of the band’s celebrated hits including ‘Lookin After No 1’, ‘Like Clockwork’, ‘She’s So Modern’, ‘I Don’t Like Mondays’ and ‘Rat Trap’ – songs with an immediacy and a message that is as pertinent today as it was when they were written – plus two new songs recorded by the newly re-formed Rats.

Some 26 years since their final show in Dublin in May ’86, The Boomtown Rats – Bob Geldof on vocals, Pete Briquette on bass, Simon Crowe on drums and Garry Roberts on guitar – played the Isle Of Wight festival on 16th June 2013 and will tour the UK in the autumn.

Boomtown Rats : Related Information

Formed in 1975 in Dublin, The Boomtown Rats were once famously described as 'licentious, festering reprobates' and 'leprous anti-establishment scumbags' and banned from playing in their home country.The band played their first UK shows with the Ramones and Talking Heads and fought the punk wars alongside the Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Jam and The Stranglers. They were one of the biggest bands of the late '70s and '80s, and their string of top ten hits and platinum albums earned them Brit Awards, Ivor Novellos and Grammy's. They made history as the first Irish band to have a UK no 1 hit with 'Rat Trap'.
