THE CORONAS TO PLAY ROUGH TRADE IN BROOKLYN
Ireland’s multi-platinum-selling band The Coronas (www.thecoronas.net) have been playing together for most of their lives. Trust the Wire, their fifth album and the first on their own label imprint, became the band’s first #1 album when it debuted at the top of the Irish music chart in early June. Trust the Wire was released in North America ahead of this November tour, and “Real Feel” (track 2) is the first single. This video for it has over 140,000 views.
The Coronas will play in Brooklyn on Friday, November 10 at Rough Trade. This summer they played to their largest audience ever—15,000 people at the sold-out Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin.
They are poised to bring their music to other parts of the world this fall with shows scheduled in Europe, the UK and Australia in addition to North America. They will return to New York to play the Bowery Ballroom on February 11, 2018. The Coronas were also among the entertainment chosen to perform for President and Mrs. Obama during their whirlwind State Visit to Ireland in May, 2011 when he visited the ancestral home of his mother.
The U.S. tour begins in Toronto with two sold out shows at the Drake Hotel this weekend.
