Press Release: Friday 9th October 2009

THE UNDERTONES CELEBRATE THE TREBLE

On the 7th of May 1989, Derry City FC completed the historic ‘treble’, winning the 1988/89 League Championship, the League Cup and the FAI Cup.

Twenty years on there have been several commemorative events held both off and on the pitch and details have now been confirmed for one of the highlights of this anniversary in an event organised by Northland Broadcast and the Nerve Centre.

The Undertones will headline a ‘Treble 1989 Celebration’ gig at Derry’s Nerve Centre on Saturday 14th November, their first Derry gig in almost two years. As well as music from one of the greatest live bands around, video footage of that incredible 1988/ 89 season will be continually displayed throughout the Nerve Centre on various screens. Members of the treble-winning squad will also be in attendance.

Confirming details of the gig, Michael Bradley of The Undertones said:
‘It's great to be able to celebrate the treble at last. Derry City has featured many times in the life of The Undertones - from the picture sleeve of Get Over You, to the cover of My Perfect Cousin, to the singing of Teenage Kicks at the Brandywell. For someone like me, who remembers Danny Hale and who sold programmes at the Texaco Cup game against Wolves, it's great to be associated with the club. We’re really looking forward to the night on the 14th November’

Tickets are £12 (plus booking fee) and will be available at The Nerve Centre, Strand Newsagents and online at http://www.wegottickets.com

All profits will go the Derry City FC Development Committee.

Any idea of what the running order for the night of 14th Nov event will be? I see it says a 9.30 start on the poster on the Derry City site. What time are the band likely to be on stage? Cheers Martin

Just got back from a really great long weekend in Derry/Belfast.
Fantastic gig by the ’Tones on Saturday night, great crowd, eveyone really enjoyed it. The band certainly looked as though they really enjoyed themselves as well.(Teenage Kicks to start with and Teenage Kicks to end with.)What more can you ask for? Met up in The very crowded (Ireland v France on the screen)Gweedore beforehand, loads of Humdingers, too many to mention, a few drinks, then off to the gig.(Paul61 - where were you?), as Wilke said, you should have forced yourself on us. Went to Belfast on Sunday for a couple of days and saw The Specials on Monday night - another great gig. Managed to bump into Arthur at The Specials gig and also a contingent of Derry lads - great to see them again.

Is the gig still on on the 28th as there is no mention of it on the Nerve centre website?

Titles are as follows:

Play With Fire - Rolling Stones

This Strange Effect -The Kinks

Whistlebait - The Collins Bros.


Flying Burrito Brothers - Hot Burrito #1(aka I'm Your Toy)

Sunday Morning - Velvet Underground

Heaven - Pere Ubu

I Can't Recall - Everley Brothers


I think that's the lot?? (Wayne/Julius/Stote/Arthur, can you recall anymore?)
