Share this article


The Academic have announced a Dublin gig. The band will play Vicar Street on Saturday December 15th.

Tickets from €25 go on sale tomorrow, Friday August 24th at 9am. 

It's been a huge year for the Westmeath quartet - from releasing their debut album that went straight to the top of the album charts to playing sold out shows across the world. They opened up for The Rolling Stones at Croke Park and sold out their biggest show to date at the outdoor Iveagh Gardens earlier this summer.

Speaking about the latest announcement, lead singer Craig Fitzgerald says; “Vicar Street is like our spiritual home, it is our favourite venue in the country. We have been out of the country for most of the year, travelling all over the world playing shows but we always had it in our head to make sure we could get a show in at Vicar Street before the end of the year for all the Irish fans. There is no place like it, it is going to be a big night”.
