Ratlife UK Tour: Boomtown Rats

After last year's storming of the Isle of Wight Festival stage, an exhilarated Bob Geldof said "It's weird. I'd forgotten how powerful a band The Rats are!" Others hadn't. What was only meant to be a brief "re-grouping" turned into a triumphant sell out UK tour, a block-booked 2014 Festival season and now the announcement of ‘Ratlife’ the second half of The Boomtown Rats’ second coming.

Taking in the towns missed out on their first jaunt and returning - literally by public demand - to the country’s major cities so thoroughly re-Ratted six months ago. Beyond nostalgia, both press and audience agreed that those many classic Ratsongs had indeed stood the test of time morphing from the radical, upstart transgressive rage of the mid-70's into tunes for the ages with a tragic contemporary resonance.

Accompanying the tour, the Rats will release ‘Ratlife’ – a hits compilation of classic Rats tracks with previously unheard additions.

This event takes place at O2 Academy Newcastle, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
