Sparks will play the first Irish headline gig of their 40 year career at The Button Factory on bank holiday Monday, October 29th.
It’s been 40 years since Sparks released their first record. 40! FORTY! In all that time they’ve managed to avoid playing here in Ireland, which is understandable. But here they are, finally. For this show, in the Button Factory in Temple Bar, the two protagonists Ron and Russel Mael, will be performing as a duo, just piano and vocals. Stripping the hits (This Town Ain’t Big Enough for Both Of Us, When Do I Get To Sing My Way & The Number One Song In Heaven, etc etc as if you need to be told) back to their constituent parts.
There might be some reason why you shouldn’t attend this gig, but unless it’s because you’re in a coma, cop on. Sparks, baby. Sparks.
