Rudeboys confirm gig at Olympia

DUBLIN hip hop act The Original Rudeboys (inset) are going from strength to strength.

They supported Cheryl Cole on her Million Lights Tour, are on an Australian tour with The Script and have legions of loyal Dublin fans.

The band hit headlines and gained admirers when they refused to support Chris Brown at the O2 last year.

And now the rapping trio has confirmed a blow-out homecoming gig at The Olympia on December 12. This follows its two sell-out gigs at the theatre earlier this year.

The three Rudeboys – Sean 'Neddy' Arkins, Robert Burch and Sean Walsh – met at a house party in the East Wall in 2011. The boys are known for their electric live performances and wow crowds with their hip hop medleys.

The three lads have also confirmed their first headline UK tour and will play London's O2 arena in July.

Tickets are on sale now.
