Description

We are very excited to announce that Mick Thomas will be playing in Gibneys Sports Bar in Malahide on Thursday 26th of October as part of his Irish Tour 2017. Tickets are €8.00 + booking fee and include a FREE Pint!

The Australian singer/songwriter, Mick Thomas, formerly of the band Weddings Parties Anything (WPA), has been playing solo for a number of years now, albeit regularly with his old WPA colleague Mark “Squeezebox Wally” Wallace on accordion.

His ever-evolving talents as a writer and performer defines a career as intriguing as it is enduring. His knockabout image partly explains his close relationship with his audience. They see him as one of them. A loyal mob who have followed him from the Weddo’s through his solo career, Mick's fans relate to his wistful, sentimental and nostalgic lyrics. Themes such as Australian history, fleeting or lost love, the bittersweet realities of life's merry-go-round, alienation, and football, are wrapped in a positive, triumph over adversity message. The characters in Mick's songs are everyday battlers, as are he and his fans.

As well as being known for their incredible live shows across Australia, Weddings Parties Anything have toured with U2 and BB King in Australia, as well as The Pogues, Billy Bragg, The Men They Couldn't Hang, Roaring Jack and The Lowest of The Low around the world.

Last year Mick played with Lisa O’Neill and Billy Bragg as part of the award-winning Irish-Australian documentary Death or Liberty – about Irish rebels transported as convicts to Australia that was shown on TG4 – http://tilefilms.ie/productions/death-or-liberty/ and https://www.roarfilm.com.au/projects/death-or-liberty/.

In March 2017, Mick released a compilation album covering the best of his solo work post WPA as well as having a book published that is based around these songs.
To coincide with this release, Mick will be touring worldwide this year and will be visiting Ireland in October 2017.
