Saw Doctors will meet you in Mayo for July gig

The gig will take place on Friday, July 29, at Claremorris Town Hall Theatre.

Tickets are going on sale this Friday (May 20) at 10 a.m. on ticketmaster.

The band have started back rehearsing in Tuam, with a UK summer appearance also in the pipeline at Wickham Festival on August 5. The six lads rehearsing are Davy, Leo, Rickie on drums, Will on bass, Anto on sax and Kieran on keyboards - the same line-up that played the last Saw Doctors gig five years ago in Glasgow in June 2017.
