Tom Happens: Songs & Stories

This event has ended

Whelan's, Thursday 19th May

Something Happens frontman Tom Dunne has announced a very special night in Whelan’s Upstairs on Thur 19th May. He will be joined by the very talented Alan Connor.

Having been derailed by Covid in March, I’m delighted to announce I will be finally taking to the stage, for my first ever solo outings. In these I will be accompanied by the gifted piano player Alan Connor. I accept ‘solo outing’ is inaccurate, but let’s face it, ‘gig without the Happens,’ is just too long. I will be featuring songs from, certainly three but possibly all five, of the albums I have recorded with Something Happens from Been There, Seen That, Done that, to Stuck Together with God’s Glue , Bedlam a Go Go and the US releases Planet Fabulous and Alan, Elvis and God.

So songs such as Daisyhead, Forget Georgia , Beach, Burn Clear, Are You My Girl, The Devil in Miss Jones, Kill The Roses, Patience Business, Take this With You, and of course Parachute. Songs I have known longer than I know my own wife. Let’s hope I remember the words
