In the year that marks their 40th anniversary, The Undertones are playing Harpenden Public Halls next week.

The band, which featured Fergal Sharkey in its original line-up, started life as five friends from Derry learning to play basic rock‘n’roll in 1976 and recording Teenage Kicks, the anthem which is always associated with them.

Other hits followed together with four acclaimed LPs before the band split with the departure of Fergal in 1983.

In 1999 The Undertones reconvened with Paul McLoone brought in on vocals. Since then they have released new albums as well as re-releasing four original LPs with additional tracks and videos.

They have toured across Europe and around the UK and to mark the 40th anniversary this year, they have performed at festivals and venues across the world.

The show at the Public Halls starts at 7.30pm next Friday, July 29, and has almost sold out. Remaining tickets at £20 can be obtained from the box office on 01582 767525 or click here.
