The Wolfe Tones are set to play a “farewell to west Belfast” show this summer as part of the Feile festival.

Announced on Saturday, the show will take place at Falls Park, closing the festival on Sunday, August 11.

Tickets go on sale Monday, July 8th at 10am via Ticketmaster.

The organizers said, “Be ready! This will sell out in minutes.”

The folk musicians who rose to prominence in the 1960s often found themselves at the center of controversy over their song Celtic Symphony, which contains the words “Ooh, ah, up the ‘Ra.”

They have announced a string of shows this year, including at the SSE Arena Belfast, the Waterfront Hall and the Millennium Forum in Derry.

Feile an Phobail will host 350 events across Belfast from 1-11 August and will feature 50 venues across the city.

Other events include 80s & 90s Night on August 3 with former Frankie Goes to Hollywood member Holly Johnson, 90s dance artists 2 Unlimited, former Smokey frontman Chris Norman, D-Ream, DJ Johnny Hero and tributes to Bruce Springsteen and Fleetwood Mac all performing live.

Sinn Fein First Minister Michelle O’Neill attended the official launch event at St Mary’s University College on the Falls Road last month.
