John Blek & The Rats

Saturday 11th November 2023
Location: Cleere’s Bar and Theatre
John Blek & the Rats are coming back together in 2023 for a very limited run of gigs with just two shows in Ireland. They are celebrating the 10th Anniversary of their debut album Leave Your Love At The Door with a barnstorming, soul-saving & shit-kicking set in Cleere’s, Kilkenny.

The group haven’t performed live together since September 2017 when they called it a day after years of hard touring around Ireland, the UK & Germany to focus on other projects, family and trying to be semi-normal people.

The seed of the reunion show was planted at the annual Rats Christmas party in December 2022 & when the booze wore off it still seemed like a good idea, so here it is. Six friends, older, not wiser are going to breathe new life into their debut record one more time.

Their live performances are known for their energy and musicianship, as well as their storytelling and lyrical depth. Overall, John Blek & The Rats are a highly regarded band within the Irish folk and roots music scene, with a loyal following and a reputation for their passionate performances and soulful songwriting. We can’t wait to have them back after their incredible performances at the Static Roots Festival 2016 and 2017.

This is not forever so get a ticket and enjoy it while it lasts!
