Ocean Colour Scene will officially play in Dublin in December

I see trouble up the road…

Ocean Colour Scene, a band which played a major role in the vibrant Indie scene of the 1990s and who supported Oasis in the history-making Knebworth gigs in 1996, are coming to the capital.

The band will play at the Olympia in Dublin on December 5 as part of the Moseley Shoals Tour, with tickets priced at €39.50, plus a €1 booking fee.

The Birmingham natives’ popularity and success has enjoyed longevity over the years, with nine albums under their belts and a couple of truly iconic single releases; few better than ‘The Riverboat Song’, as fans of TFI Friday will attest to.

If you can’t make it to the Dublin gig, the band are also playing in The Limelight in Belfast the night before, on December 4.
