Fans flock to catch Peakin Trippers live show
FOR THE first time since the mid-90s, when a member of Therapy performed in the Harbour Bar, there were queues of people waiting outside the local pub to see Peakin’ Trippers perform after their debut single Tin Tin hit the Irish charts the previous week.
Fans waited patiently outside for up to one hour as staff were forced to stop letting people in due to safety concerns. Goodnatured punters also queued up inside to get to the bar as under pressure staff did their best to facilitate the huge numbers of peo- ple. When lead singer Scott O’Neill introduced Tin Tin to rapturous applause, he reminded the audience that the song, in at number 45 and was only on sale in two record shops, had beaten Metallica and Nickleback, both of whom had released singles the same week. Peakin’ Trippers were the only unsigned act to have made that week’s chart.
Tin Tin is available in musicmail.ie on the Main Street (formerly Golden Discs) and in Tower Records on Wicklow Street. Alternatively text 1392 to 57501 to download the song.
The Peakin Trippers, who played The Koo last week, are celebrating their recent chart success.
