The Frames will be playing a one-off gig in Dublin to mark their 30th anniversary

"Sometimes I need a revelation..." Not to be missed by fans.

2020 is a big year for The Frames as the band mark their 30th anniversary and they've got a treat in store for fans.


Oh yes, Glen Hansard and co. will be playing Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin on Saturday, 20 June 2020.

If ever a date for a gig was easy to remember, it's that!

Tickets are priced at €55 and they go on sale on Friday, 13 December at 10am.

Speaking about the gig, Hansard said: “There’s something about stepping back into the furious belly of this beast where the low bells chime around the parish, where time is swallowed and years slip by, this place where most of my hearing went in the sound of working it out from soaring angst to occasional pride into unmoored middle age. The songs grow too and change their meaning, till it all collapses together into the glorious bonfire that is The Frames.

Regarded as one of Ireland’s most successful domestic music acts of their generation, 2020 marks 30 years since the band started collaborating on music together and they're set to revisit songs from their extensive back catalogue at the one-off show.

This isn't the first time that The Frames have marked a significant milestone in their history.

In 2010, they returned to mark their 20 year anniversary with a headline slot at Electric Picnic. They also played a string of sold out shows in the US and Europe before finishing the year with a run around Dublin in The Olympia, Vicar Street and Whelans. 


The band also reconvened to mark their 25th anniversary with three sold-out shows at the Iveagh Gardens and Cork Marquee.  

Bring it on.
