Now on sale: The Undertones 40th anniversary concert at Millennium Forum, Derry
The Undertones 40th Anniversary Concert, Friday November 4, Millennium Forum, Derry.
DERRY punks The Undertones are currently celebrating their 40th anniversary as a live unit and would probably never be allowed back across the walls again were they not to include a hometown fixture as part of their ongoing celebratory tour.
Thus, Mickey, Billy, John, Damien and Paul will be taking to the stage at The Millennium Forum next month for a blast through their superlative back catalogue, an occasion sure to make both audience and band feel progressively younger as the years slip away in a sweaty blur of pogoing and enthusiastic sing-alongs.
Opening act Touts will be among the minority who won't be ruing their real ages the morning after: barely out of school, the pleasingly anti-fashion Derry trio specialise in a garage rocking strain of catchy punk that's timeless in its primal, instantly appealing simplicity.
Must be something in the water up there.
