The Saw Doctors
UK Tour November to December 2012
THE Saw Doctors who are
currently headlining a 29 date Coast to Coast Tour of the US and
Canada, will embark on their largest ever UK Tour in November and
December 2012! With 14 shows in major markets such as London's 02
Shepherds Bush Empire, Manchester's 02 Apollo and Edinburgh's HMV
Picturehouse, it will be quite a tour! In 2011, The Saw
Doctors had a runaway hit with their cover of Petula Clark's classic
1960's pop single, Downtown which reached Number 2 in December,
pipped only by the X Factor band, Little Mix. Petula Clark joined
the band in the studio to re-record the chorus and harmony and acted
a cameo role in the Downtown video which was filmed in Paris and the
streets of Galway.
Prodigious young talent Rickie O'Neill (21) has joined The Saw
Doctors as their new drummer, replacing Eimhin Cradock - Rickie
wasn't even born when The Saw Doctors scored their first Irish
Number One, I Useta Lover back in 1990.
Over the past couple of years, The Saw Doctors are more popular than
ever after almost 2 decades. Universal Music released their
"Best Of" collection, "To Win Just Once.. The Best of
The Saw Doctors" which charted at Number Three in Ireland
and went on to achieve Platinum Status. In the Christmas of 2010 The
Saw Doctors hit Number One on iTunes with their Acapella version of
Red Cortina from their debut album, If This Is Rock & Roll I Want My
Old Job Back.
Formed in 1988, The Saw Doctors have achieved eighteen Top Thirty
singles and three Number One hits in Ireland. Loved and revered by
their loyal fans, the juggernaut that is the Saw Doctors keeps
rolling on and shows no signs of slowing anytime soon. If you
haven’t seen them before, make sure to get tickets to what is one of
the most memorable, enjoyable, exhilarating gigs you’ll ever see.
In their own words:- "Born into a repressed, catholic,
conservative, small-town agarian, angst-ridden and showband infested
society we’re trying to preserve the positive elements of our
background and marry them to the sounds which have culturally
invaded our milieu through TV, radio 45's, fast food restaurants, 24
hour petrol stations and electric blankets."

nominations, this morning Alyssa was nominated for her first Juno
Award for New Artist of the Year!
Alyssa’s meteoric rise here at home is now being mirrored
internationally where the talented songstress is making some serious
waves across the pond. Her debut single "Alone Again"
has been the 1 searched song on Shazam in the United Kingdom for
three weeks running, was the 1 pre-ordered download on iTunes last

Following the huge success Alyssa saw with her first two singles
Alone Again and the title track from her debut album The Game, she
has recently released the third, Talk Me Down. The song and upcoming

heartfelt lyrics that talk of perseverence, inner strength, and the
ability to move on. Alyssa’s Toronto fans will also get the chance
to be in the new video. By tweeting their ideas on how we can
overcome bullying together, and using the hashtag #YouWontTalkMeDown,
tweeters can earn the chance to be in the video while helping to
