Travis announce Dublin performance of iconic album The Man Who

Tickets go on sale this Friday.

Multi-Brit Award winners Travis are bringing their classic album The Man Who to the stage in Ireland this December.

The Scottish quartet are set to play an intimate show at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on Sunday 9 December.

The band hit meteoric levels of fame when their second album, 1999's The Man Who, became their most successful piece both critically and commercially.

The album – which wasn't an immediate hit – changed the game for Travis when one of their most memorable songs 'Why Does It Always Rain On Me?' was played at 1999's Glastonbury Festival to a crowd of rain-soaked revellers.

Legend has it, that after being dry for several hours, it began to rain as soon as the first line was sung.

It also eventually took Best Album at the 2000 BRIT Awards, with Travis being named Best Band. The group also claimed Best Songwriter(s) and Best Contemporary Song Awards at the Ivor Novello Awards.

The album was released back in May 1999 and, with it, made Travis a household name.
