‘The legendary Irish music group, The Wolfe Tones, have revealed their final London performance, set to be their largest UK show yet. This historic event will occur at Finsbury Park on Friday, July 5, 2024, commemorating their remarkable 60-year journey. Joining them for this extraordinary celebration will be The Undertones, The Sharon Shannon Big Band, The Scratch, and Brògeal.’

Tickets go on general sale at 9AM on Friday 15 March 2024 from this page on Ticketmaster.

Speaking about the show, Brian Warfield of The Wolfe Tones says: “The Irish diaspora across the world have always been massive supporters of The Wolfe Tones, and no greater support was had than from the Irish in Britain! I wrote ‘My Heart Is In Ireland’ as a tribute to the Irish in England, Scotland and Wales. The London Irish hold a very special place in our hearts, there are too many shows to mention but the great nights in The National in Kilburn will never be forgotten. It is most fitting that The Wolfe Tones 60th Anniversary Concert will be our final London performance. It will also be our largest ever in the UK, with a headline set in Finsbury Park!  We promise to make it a very special experience for what we hope will be a massive attendance as we say farewell to London – Let The People Sing!”

Starting from their modest origins in Dublin, The Wolfe Tones have captivated Irish music enthusiasts worldwide for six decades—from enchanting audiences at Carnegie Hall in New York to the revered Paris Olympia. Spanning from 1964 to 2024, their illustrious career cements their status as iconic pioneers of traditional Irish music.

After a historic performance at Ireland’s Electric Picnic in 2023, where the beloved band attracted one of the largest crowds in the festival’s history, The Wolfe Tones are now gearing up to say goodbye to London with their ultimate show in the capital — their most significant UK performance yet.

The Undertones, Northern Irish icons hailing from Derry since 1974, will be joining them at Finsbury Park. These revered punk legends perfected their art through bedroom rehearsals and tuning in to John Peel’s BBC Radio 1 show, a key influence who later championed their work. Coming off the success of their 45th-anniversary tour for ‘Teenage Kicks’, their performance this summer with The Wolfe Tones promises to be a historic event at Finsbury Park.

Michael Bradley from The Undertones expressed his excitement about sharing a stage, as well as half a name, with The Wolfe Tones on a momentous day for the latter.
