THE SAW DOCTORS Announce 20th Anniversary UK Tour

The Saw Doctors

20th Anniversary Tour

November/ December 2011

“If they could bottle the sort of bonhomie that can make a n entire concert hall feel better, The Saw Doctors would have the medicine show to end them all”
 Paul Sexton, The Times, London
"One of the Great Live Bands" Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2

Following their triumphant appearance at the London Feis at Finsbury Park last month, The Saw Doctors have just announced the details of their 20th Anniversary UK Tour to promote the bands current studio album, The Further Adventures of The Saw Doctors.

The nine date UK tour by The Saw Doctors will begin at Leeds O2 Academy on November 25, and includes two London shows at O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on December 2 and 3, and a Manchester O2 Apollo concert on December 17. Guitarist, vocalist and songwriter for the band, Leo Moran says;

"It seems like only yesterday that The Saw Doctors crossed the Irish Sea to play London's Mean Fiddler and Manchester's International 2 in 1991. We've had a great innings and I am looking forward to playing some new songs and some old favourites on the upcoming 20th Anniversary tour of the UK".

Over the past couple of years, Ireland's Saw Doctors have blazed back phoenix-like from almost two decades of unsung glory. Universal Music released their Best of collection  “To Win Just Once - The Best of The Saw Doctors” which charted  at Number 3 in the Ireland and went on to achieve platinum status.  Last Christmas The Saw Doctors reached No. 1 on iTunes with their acapella version of their 1991 song Red Cortina.

Fronted by two criminally under-rated songwriters, Leo Moran and Davy Carton, this is the band that entered the record books back in 1990 when I Useta Lover spent nine weeks at number one, becoming Ireland's best-selling single of all time. They followed up with the No 2 hit, N17, and a chart-topping album, If This Is Rock And Roll, I Want My Old Job Back.

Irresistibly sing-along songs (To Win Just Once, Hay Wrap and Clear Island to name but three), still flowed from Moran and Carton; their loyal fans on both sides of the Atlantic have never wavered in support, turning up to their shows in huge numbers and following them all around the world.

The festival veterans will also be playing at T in the Park and Oxegen this weekend. Renowned for their live performances you won’t want to miss The Saw Doctors on tour!
