The Boomtown Rats have just announced a gig at Dublin's Olympia Theatre next year.

Bob Geldof and co. will play a hometown show - where he'll hopefully be a bit more polite to the crowd than he was at a recent UK festival - on March 25th 2017.

The band are celebrating 40 years together this year, so you can expect a run-through of their extensive back catalogue.

Tickets are €40 including booking fee, and on sale from usual outlets next Friday, August 19th at 10am.
