Great news 90s kids because the greatest girl band of the decade will be performing in Dublin this summer. About 10 weeks after the Spice Girls.
Just kidding, Spice fans. While Scary, Sporty and the rest achieved levels of international recognition most British girl groups could only aspire to, All Saints certainly weren’t far behind them.
Shaznay, Melanie and the Appleton sisters won many admirers when they emerged in 1997, about a year after their would-be chart rivals the Spice Girls.
While the Spices were known for their in-your-face attitude and pop anthems, Saints arguably had a more mature fanbase thanks to their soulful vocals and R’n’B-inspired tunes. Plus, Never Ever was and still is an absolute banger.
In what is already looking like a jam-packed summer of shows, Irish All Saints fans will be able to catch the group at Leopardstown Racecourse on Thursday August 8.
Excited to come over to Dublin to play our only Irish show this year, headlining this summer’s Bulmers Live at @LeopardstownRC on Thurs Aug 15! Tickets and info at: https://t.co/5mssBsbqMR #LiveAtLeopardstown https://t.co/hhltQVJTed

The show will be just one of a series of gigs at the venue in the coming months with the likes of Coolio, The Blizzards and Bay City Rollers also confirmed to take to the stage.
Like the All Saints song would suggest, they all seem to know exactly where it’s at. Ticket details and more information can be found here.
