Gig News:: ‘John, Shelly & the Creatures’ to perform at Toys 4 big Boys on November 13th.
Belfast Foursome John, Shelly & the Creatures will be performing atTOYS 4 BIG BOYS at the RDS in November on the 13th at 2pm, performing songs from their critically acclaimed album DINOSAUR.
Earlier this year t he Northern Irish Tourist Board launched a phase of TV adverts that featured the bands single (from the debut album Dinosuar) tilted Long May You Reign as the title music on the advert. From statistics, the Advert has been the most successful Tv advert they have had on the NITB, so they were asked to go back into the studio last month to record a new version of the song, for the more laid back Autumn/Winter season. Now, there is a completely new advert being aired. There is a 10 second, 30 second and 60 second version on TV now. There is also a 60 second radio advert which features an instrumental version. They all feature a newly arranged and recorded version of Long May You Reign which will be a special b-side to the band’s new single SUNNY SIDE STREET which will be release in November.
Being propelled into the spotlight this year, the band have performed on The Late Late Show,The Eleventh Hour with Dave Fanning, Tg4, BBC TWO, RTE Two, and at Dublin’s RDS to over 20,0000 people. Injecting vital fuel into the JSATC machine, the success of the single (which was picked for the ad over Greenday if you don’t mind) has buoyed the band, not only heightening their profile across the island, but affording them the comforts of a new tour van, and helping them fulfill a packed touring schedule over the past few month and in the coming weeks the band go back on the road. So do not miss out on their special performance at The RDS Toys 4 Big Boys show in November!
Toys 4 Big Boys 2010 is shaping up to be an unbelievable show with all your favourites and much much more.
