It's the mid-2000s all over again.

Don't worry, you haven't woken up in some kind of time warp - even though two big gig announcements this morning might make you think you have.

JLS are embarking on a huge comeback tour after a 7-year hiatus that will include dates in Dublin and Belfast.

The r&b/pop boyband will kick off their UK & Irish arena tour with dates at Dublin's 3Arena on Thursday, November 12th and Belfast's SSE Arena on Friday, November 13th. Tickets are on sale next Friday, February 21st from usual outlets at 9am.

Meanwhile, another blast from the past is planning special gigs in Dublin and Belfast this summer.

Ronan Keating is celebrating 20 years as a solo artist this year, and will play Vicar Street on June 6th and Belfast's Botanic Gardens on June 5th.

He'll also release a new album called 'Twenty Twenty' on May 1st, which features 're-imagined' versions of his hits.

Tickets for both dates go on sale Friday February 21st at 10am.
