    The Skids

    The Academy



    As part of their 40th anniversary UK & Irish tour, Scottish punk legends The Skids play Dublin's Academy on May 26.

    The Dunfermline band comprises  former members Richard Jobson, Bill Simpson & Mike Baillie, as well as Big Country's Bruce & Jamie Watson. Having formed in 1977, they supported the Clash before signing to Virgin for a string of huge singles, most notably 'Into The Valley'. The band released four albums before their split, with guitarist Stuart Adamson achieving huge success with Big Country, before he unfortunately took his own life in 2001.

    Tickets cost €28 from Ticketmaster. Doors open at 7pm.
