Bob Geldof @ Vicar Street by Kieran FrostIt’s a rat trap baby… and you’ve been caught.

The return of Bob and the boys under their famous moniker, The Boomtown Rats will be greeted with wry reminiscing smiles. The Dun Laoghaire lads who formed back in 1975 this morning announced that they will play Live at the Marquee, Cork on July 5th 2013.

Bob Geldof said ““The old town looks the same, as I step down from the train, and there to greet me is”….er….I won’t quote Phillo and say ‘the boys are back in town’ or the Rats are back in Boomtown (but they are!), I’ll just say we fancied getting up there and playing those songs again for the sheer joy of it and we hope some of you would like to hear them from the band that made them. Anyway it’ll be good to be back and better to see everyone again!”

Tickets for the show are priced at €35 -€45 inclusive of booking fee and go on sale Friday 22nd February at 9am. Tickets are available from and outlets nationwide.
