The Saw Doctors to play Fairview Park, Dublin

Saturday 29th June 2024

Only Dublin Concert

Tickets on sale Friday 26th January at 9.00am


Following their four sold-out shows at 3Olympia before Christmas and a barnstorming appearance at Electric Picnic last September, The Saw Doctors will play an exclusive Dublin concert at Fairview Park on Saturday 29th June (subject to licence).  Tickets will go on sale on Friday 26th January at 9.00am from

The Fairview Park concert is part of a trio of Summer outdoor shows for The Saw Doctors

with the Tuam shams lined up to play Central Park in New York on July 17 and Manchester Castlefield Bowl on July 6.

After a five-year break from touring, The Saw Doctors staged a brilliant comeback last year with sold-out shows in London at Hammersmith Apollo, New York at Hammerstein Ballroom and two homecoming shows in Tuam where they played to 10,000 people in St. Jarlath’s Arena.

The Saw Doctors are powered by song writers Davy Carton (vocals) and Leo Moran (guitar) with a band lineup including former Waterboy Anthony Thistlethwaite on saxophone, Rickie O’Neill, drums Will Merrigan, bass guitar, Kieran Duddy, keyboards and Noelie McDonnell, backing vocals.

Discovered by Mike Scott of The Waterboys on a stormy Tuesday night in Galway City in the late 1980s, The Saw Doctors grew quickly, touring around Ireland and Great Britain, including a six-week stint with The Waterboys on the Fisherman’s Blues tour in 1989.

The Saw Doctors second single, ‘I Useta Lover’ was a surprise Number One hit in Ireland in 1990, remaining top of the charts for nine weeks, going on to become the biggest selling  Irish single ever.

In August 2021, The Saw Doctors scored a surprise chart success when the vinyl re-release of the band’s debut album ‘If This Is Rock And Roll, I Want My Old Job Back’ landed at No. 3 in the Irish Album charts.


“If The Saw Doctors could bottle the sort of bonhomie that can make an entire

concert hall feel better, they would have the medicine show to end them all.”
