Forget the Spice Girls, All Saints are coming to Dublin!
This summer is set to be a summer of '90s nostalgia. The Spice Girls and Westlife are bringing their sellout comeback tours to Croke Park, B*Witched are headlining Dublin pride and now 90s girl group All Saints have announced they are coming to Dublin. All Saint will be the headline act at this year's Bulmers Live at Leopardstown Racecourse Thursday, August 15th.
All Saints were part of the wave of British girls groups that came out on the back of the success of the Spice Girls. Unlike, the outright pop sound of the Spice Girls, All Saints were edgier with more focus on their harmonies and vocals than image. That being said, their laid back style of baggy trousers and cropped tops that flashed a hint of both hips and mid-drift influenced '90s school girls everywhere. All Saints burst on the music scene in 1997 with their debut single, Never Ever, which was the second best selling single by a girl group of all time in the UK, second only to Spice Girls 'Wannabe'. All Saints also released a cover of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers classic Under the Bridge and arguably their best song Pure Shores from 'The Beach' soundtrack.
Bulmers Live at Leopardstown will run on eight days throughout Summer and will kick off on June 6th. Here is the full list of acts:
