Irish act PictureHouse have announced plans to celebrate the 21st birthday of their debut album Shine Box with a show in the National Concert Hall onSeptember 13th.

Best known for a string of hit singles including Sunburst, Heavenly Day, Everybody Loves My Girl, Somebody Somewhere, Love In The Streets and most recently Rules of Science, the band made a name for themselves with a constant touring schedule that saw them sharing stages with the likes of Meatloaf, The Corrs, James, Texas, Runrig, Mel C, Marillion and many more. They played to over a million people in 1999 and in the same year had the most played song by any artist on Irish radio.

The band eventually broke up in 2004 before reuniting in 2013 and returning with a brand-new album Evolution which again spawned radio singles including Some Night She Will Be Mine, Hello and Rules of Science.

The band commented “The National Concert Hall is such an amazing venue, we can’t wait to play there and see some of these songs in that environment. We’re also looking forward to seeing “Songs in The Key Of D” again. They are a fantastic choir and we had a great time performing with them last year.”

The band have revealed that they will be releasing a special record called “How Can I Explain How It Came To Be?” to celebrate the occasion, featuring key singles, album tracks, B-sides and never heard before material. The release date will be announced very soon.

Tickets priced just €29.50 including booking fee are available now from 014170000 or from picturehouse.ie/tickets
