THE BAND formerly known as The Dubliners are coming to the St Helens stage as part of their latest tour.

The Dublin Legends, as they are now known, formed following the sudden death of founding member Barney McKenna in 2012 and the loss of other members.

Sean Cannon, Paul Watchorn, Gerry O’Connor and Shay Kavanagh, the new line up for The Dublin Legends, have more than 100 years of performing experience between them and Sean was the lead singer with The Dubliners for 30 of them.

The event at St Helens Theatre Royal on Thursday, March 21 will see them perform the band's most popular songs, including Whiskey in The Jar, Dirty Old Town, The Wild Rover, Seven Drunken Nights, The Rare Auld Times, Molly Malone, The Irish Rover, Black Velvet Band and many more.

In 2017 the band suffered a huge loss when guitarist and founder, Eamonn Campbell, passed away while they were on tour in Holland.

Even though he had been in poor health it was still a massive shock, so they asked an old friend, Shay Kavanagh, if he would like to come on the road with them and, thankfully, Shay readily agreed.

It was Eamonn’s wish that the band continue touring and finish off recording the album they had been working on.

In the past five years the band have continued on with the legacy of The Dubliners by travelling far and wide playing concerts to a whole new generation of Irish music fans.

They have wowed audiences in Iceland, Norway, Finland, The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland and all over England, Scotland and Wales.

Tickets costing £25 can be purchased via the box office on Corporation Street, via 01744 756000 or via
