“I love playing in Ireland”, says singer Mike Peters. “I have some incredible memories of being there with The Alarm back in the day. Croke Park in Dublin 1985 with U2 was an incredible event along with smaller shows at places like the TV Club and McGonagles – when Bono climbed up onto the stage to play ‘Heaven’s Door” with us.”

“Belfast was always a rare but exciting destination for the band,” continues Mike, “I’ll never forget an incredible night at Mandela Hall back in 1985 on FA Cup Final Day. I was fortunate to go back to both cities when I was singing for Big Country and more recently to Dublin a solo capacity, and I always remained determined that one day I would be able to bring The Alarm back over with me. That day has finally arrived and I can’t wait… Bring it on!”
