Instatour: Ham Sandwich


Niamh from Ham Sandwich shares some of her favourite snaps from the band’s last few tours, from sand dunes in Dubai to backstage at Christchurch and their support slot with Bon Jovi at Slane Castle last Saturday.

  • The first advertisement I spotted for our support slot at slane! It's a massive deal for us to be playing at this so we are all incredibly excited!
  • This photo is from when we played a gig in Chistchurch for the Temple Street Children's hospital. It was an amazing night and the setting was glorious. We also had the DCU choral scholars sing with us on two tunes which was very special!
  • This is Podge at the desk on the Saturday Night Show. We did one if our songs Models fully live which was nerve wracking and very exciting all that the same time!
  • This is from Dubai. We played there last year and just had the most amazing time. This photo was taken after we went dune bashing in these massive sand dunes! I hope we get to go back!
  • This is from EP 2012. We had the most amazing weekend, we played 3 gigs in total and just had an excellent time! I wish we were playing again this year!
  • This is backstage at the half moon in cork. We generally sit around and have a laugh before gigs. This place was the dressing room for a theatre so there was loads of dressing up stuff that we had great craic with!
  • This photo was from a song writing weekend we went on. I'm pretty sure podge was making a Sunday roast in this tiny oven and it took about 5 hours! We were all starving!
  • This is Podge backstage at our good friend Fred Cookes first huge gig in Vicar Street! We were there to accompany him on his comedy song!
  • This was us in our last big practice before Slane, in The Village venue. It was great to have the opportunity to practice in this setting before the gig!
  • This is another one from our Slane rehearsal! Look how excited and happy Podge and Fred look! :)
  • This is myself and Sarah outside our dressing room at Slane!!
  • Another one from the slane practice, we have to fit 11 of us on that tiny stage for the rehearsal! We somehow worked it out tho!
  • Sarah and Eotain having a last minute jam at Slane!
  • We had 4 bottles of buck fast on our rider! Messy times were to follow later that night...
  • Our banner
  • This was just before we went on stage, I was so nervous at this point I was just sitting on my own not talking to anyone!!
