The Moseley Shoals 20th Anniversary Tour

Oasis, The Verve and Ocean Colour Scene were the 3 biggest selling rock acts of the 90s in the UK & Ireland. With the first 2 currently resting on their laurels (for god knows how long), Ocean Colour Scene are back with a BANG for 2016, celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their stone classic album ‘Moseley Shoals’, which has sold almost 2 million copies since it’s release in 1996. The 20th Anniversary tour has got off to a flying start with sold out shows in Australia and their just announced 4 outdoor shows in Birmingham and Leeds in July, selling all 40,000 tickets in a matter of days. Daytripper is delighted to host the band as headliner on Saturday, 2 July, for one of only 2 Irish dates on the Anniversary Tour.

The Ocean Colour Scene story is already the stuff of legend; a rip-roaring rock’n’folk odyssey set to a backdrop of 26 years of U.K pop culture at its very best. In that 26 year existence, Ocean Colour Scene have notched up nine albums, three of which went Top 5 – 1996’s Moseley Shoals, 1997’s Marchin’ Already and 1999’s One From The Modern – and a run of nine successive Top 20 hit singles commencing with 1996’s The Riverboat Song. They supported Oasis at their massive Knebworth shows that same year, and two years later helmed the biggest arena tour of any UK band to date. From their days as Breton-shirt wearing disciples of The Stone Roses (debut single ‘Sway’) to million selling Britpop superstars (‘Marchin’ Already’ bumped Oasis’ ‘What’s the Story’ from the top spot in 1997) to long-term touring allies with Paul Weller, their story is inseparable from the greats of modern British rock.

— Stereo MCs —

Born out of the mid 80’s inspirational hip hop and acid house club scene, Stereo Mc’s reputation grew rapidly throughout the late 80’s. They started an underground dance label releasing artists like the Jungle Brothers as well as their own records, before being picked up by Island Records. In this period they performed live extensively with groups such as De La Soul, EMF and U2, and did US and UK tours with the like-minded Happy Mondays. After early chart success in America and the UK with second LP ‘Supernatural’, they released the Album ‘Connected’ in 1992 and it became a huge international hit spawning the massive singles ‘Connected’ and ‘Step It Up’. Stereo Mcs then embarked on a year long touring schedule including memorable appearances at all the major festivals including Glastonbury. This period culminated with a Mercury prize nomination and 2 Brit awards for Best Album and Best Live Act.

Aside from following on with remix activity for Madonna, Tricky and U2 amongst others, a period of relative silence followed. They emerged 7 years later with their K7 DJ Kicks LP, followed quickly by the top 20 LP and single ‘Deep Down and Dirty’.
A return to independent labels in 2005 rejuvenated the band and has seen them making new LP’s and touring regularly. With a reputation as a unique and high energy live act, they undertook an extensive 23 date tour of Europe last year and now play their first Irish show in many years at Daytripper, Stereo Mcs…’gonna do it again’!

— Neville Staple Band —

[ex The Specials]

Neville Staple aka ‘ The Original Rudeboy’ is credited with changing the face of popular music not once but twice. Neville’s thirty-five year career in the music business is well documented, from his early days with The Coventry Automatics, through to worldwide success with The Specials in the late 70s and major pop hits with The FunBoy 3 in the 80s. He could never stay away long from his love of performing live which he did with The Special Beat and various other collaborations during his solo career from the ‘90s up to the present day.
Neville played a leading role in the 2009 reunion of The Specials which saw him tour major festivals and arenas again with his former band mates. But since his departure, he continues to be a forerunner of the ska movement and continues to thrill audiences with his own excellent band, The Neville Staple Band, who perform the best songs of The Specials alongside other ska favourites at venue and festival appearances worldwide. They are no strangers to Waterford having played the First Of The Summer Wine festival in Tramore back in 2010 and the Original Rudeboy can’t wait to make another Day Trip to the Ska capital of Ireland.

“It isn’t hard to work out why The Specials lack energy on stage these days, it’s because Neville Staple took it with him” -Steve Oliver -Nottingham Post

— Smash Hits —

The people of Waterford LOVE Smash Hits. From humble beginnings playing to 50 people on their debut at Electric Avenue back in 2009, Ireland’s favourite party band have consistently sold out Waterford’s biggest entertainment spaces (Crystal and The Forum) over the last few years. Their winning formula is very simple; fully decked out in 90s gear they perform a fun filled and high energy set of 90s dance, pop and R’n’B chart classics. Just take a look at their current set-list highlights… “U Can’t Touch This”, ”Rhythm Of The Night”, “Gangster’s Paradise”, “It’s My Life”, “Ice Ice Baby”, “Pump Up The Jam”, “I Like To Move It”, “Mr Vain”, “Free From Desire”, “Jump Around”, “Here Comes The Hotstepper”, “Never Forget”, “Insomnia” and “Born Slippy”. Smash Hits are a throwback to the FEEL-GOOD time of old skool DJs, all night raves and packed out dancefloors. Having smashed it on the Sunday of Daytripper 2015, Smash Hits return to get the PARTY started on the Saturday night of Daytripper 2016. Here Come The Hotsteppers!

— Mad Ferritt —

Mad Ferritt are Ireland’s Top Oasis tribute band. They play a set of Old Skool Oasis classics with the swagger and attitude of the Gallagher brothers, including all their greatest hits from the 90s which first brought the UK’s biggest ever band to the attention of the world two decades ago. The lads have already played a couple of crazy shows to 700 mad for it Oasis fans at Project venue in Waterford over the last 2 years and are now ready to go Supersonic on the main stage at Daytripper. In honour of supporting the brilliant Ocean Colour Scene, who were on the legendary Knebworth line-up with Oasis in 1996, Mad Ferritt will be performing a ‘Knebworth Highlights’ set at Daytripper.

— Discopunks —

Respected music critic Nialler (The Irish Times) has described new Irish act, The Discopunks, as being like LCD Soundsystem fronted by Bono. Over the last year the band have been building an interesting profile by posting up pictures of iconic musicians, pop culture and design on Instagram and Twitter. Debut single ‘Tie Me Up’ was strong enough to disclaim any notion of hype as did follow up tracks ‘My Beat Jesus’ and ‘Party Animals’. The band’s live reputation is also building strongly with some well received gigs around the capital. Catch Discopunks on their Waterford debut at Daytripper.
