The great Country Rock Band, SMOKIE, have emerged as one of the greatest and longest lasting bands from the 70’s and 80’s. They continue to be in demand across the globe. This is their only south of Ireland appearance on this short tour and fans from all over the province, and beyond, are sure to make the trip to see one of the greatest live bands in the world.
It’s hard to believe, but Smokie celebrated their 45th Anniversary in 2018 with a world tour, which will see them visit 3 continents and will bring that distinctive Smokie sound to 19 countries. And in case you thought they would be tired and burned out? Well, not a bit of it! They have reveled in the challenge of bringing a new freshness and vigour to Smokie hits that have become classics of pop.
