90s girl band TLC will play their first ever Irish gig at the Metropolis Festival this October

How is this only their first Irish appearance?

Don't pretend like you don't know TLC.


If you haven't heard of the band before you have definitely heard their songs Waterfalls or No Scrubs and would know them well enough to sing along to the chorus.

If you do know them and like them but you're too ashamed to admit it, just remember, if it's good enough for Michael Keaton, it is more than good enough for you.

Well, the iconic band will play their first ever Irish show at this year’s Metropolis Festival. TLC was the biggest girl band in the 90s, selling an incredible 65 million records and winning multiple awards including Grammys and VMAs.

If you're a fan of 90s music, get excited because you will not want to miss this and if you're a superfan of TLC, the band have even released some brand new music for 2017 which will hopefully feature at the festival.

The award-winning Metropolis Festival returns for its third chapter and is now on the October Bank Holiday Weekend, 28 and 29 October.

This unique indoor event offers a wealth of music, art installations, performance and conversation over 6 stages, to once again create a unique and stunning playground for the senses.


They have upped the ante this year and have a fantastic line-up which includes: Richie Hawtin, Leftfield and Jungle plus many more acts who will grace the RDS stage in October.

Hawtin is the most sought-after techno artist in the world right now, Leftfield are one of electronic music’s all-time greatest acts and it will be Jungle's first Irish show since their appearance at the sold out Forbidden Fruit in 2016.

Other artists playing at the Metropolis Festival are: Mount Kimbie, Bonzai, DJ Deece and our very own Irish 8-piece Booka Brass Band.


Tickets go on sale on Friday 30 June and for more information on the festival, you can visit their Facebook page.
