The Coronas have announced two Christmas dates in Dublin.

The band will play The Olympia Theatre in Dublin on December 5 and 6.

Last summer the band played the biggest show of their career, performing for a 15,000-strong crowd at the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham.

Speaking about the Christmas shows, frontman Danny O'Reilly said: “If you had have told us last year that in 2017 we'd start our own record label, get our first number 1 album, sell out our biggest ever headline show, and pretty much tour the world, we probably wouldn't have believed you.

We would have been happy to just continue to not have to get a real job! It's been emotional, we've loved every minute and we can't wait to see what 2018 brings,"

He added: “We're delighted to announce that we'll be back in Dublin's Olympia Theatre this Christmas for two special intimate shows. We're just about to get on the road to promote Trust The Wire, touring in Europe, the U.K., Canada, the US and Australia, and we couldn’t be more excited.

"We wanted to finish the tour by playing in Dublin and what better venue to play than the Olympia."

Tickets go on sale 9am Friday 22 September via Ticketmaster.
