Time to ramp up the chat on this. The new 2FM Tour starts a week on Thursday on Portlaoise with David Geraghty, Concerto For Constantine and Ham Sandwich on each night with a local support.

The show will be live from Portlaoise on the afternoon of the first show and myself and Cormac Battle will be introducing the bands on the night.

Best news? The tickets are free. Because we love you. Or something like that. A load of the dates are full at this stage but there are a few left, have a look here:
