Legendary Irish band Hothouse Flowers will play Dubai Opera on St Patrick’s Day next year.

Hothouse Flowers, which started performing on Dublin’s Grafton Street, before exploding onto the UK music scene, will bring their hybrid of rock n’ roll, Irish folk and gospel influences to Dubai Opera for one night only, on March 17, 2019.

The band’s debut album People (1988) remains their most successful, reaching number one in Ireland and number 2 in the UK. The album features their debut single Don’t Go, and subsequent hits I'm Sorry and Feet On the Ground.

Their second album Home includes the song ‘I Can See Clearly Now’, which was used for the opening of Amazon Prime’s show The Grand Tour, hosted by the former Top Gear team of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

“With the fantastic Hothouse Flowers confirmed for St. Patrick’s Day this is the perfect chance to enjoy one of Ireland’s very best live bands from the last 30 years for their Dubai debut,” said Jasper Hope, chief executive at Dubai Opera.

Tickets are on sale at 12pm today starting from AED195. There’s also an Early Bird offer of 20% on the top two categories until December 5.
