Traditional Irish music icons The Wolfe Tones will play their last ever London show in Finsbury Park as they celebrate 60 years together.

The July 5 gig will also be the biggest UK show of their six decade career, and in shades of the well loved Fleadh festivals - which ran in Finsbury Park throughout the 90s - the line-up offers the best of Irish and Scottish rock, folk, punk, trad and indie.

Derry punk rock legends The Undertones, genre-bending Dublin four piece The Scratch, Scottish Celtic folk-punk outfit Brògeal, and Irish multi-instrumentalist Sharon Shannon with her Big Band will offer support.

Speaking about the show, Brian Warfield of The Wolfe Tones says: “The Irish diaspora across the world have always been massive supporters of The Wolfe Tones, and no greater support was had than from the Irish in Britain!

"I wrote ‘My Heart Is In Ireland’ as a tribute to the Irish in England, Scotland and Wales. The London Irish hold a very special place in our hearts, there are too many shows to mention but the great nights in The National in Kilburn will never be forgotten.

"It is most fitting that The Wolfe Tones 60th Anniversary Concert will be our final London performance. It will also be our largest ever in the UK, with a headline set in Finsbury Park!  We promise to make it a very special experience for what we hope will be a massive attendance as we say farewell to London – Let The People Sing!"

The band started out from humble beginnings in Dublin in 1964 ,and went on to play everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Paris Olympia with their own unique style as pioneers of Irish traditional music.

The Undertones are also marking an anniversary after forming in Derry in 1974 and going on to score hits such as Teenage Kicks and My Perfect Cousin.

Michael Bradley of The Undertones says: “It's great to be sharing a stage (as well as half a name) with The Wolfe Tones on an historic day for them.”

The Wolf Tones gig is the first of three back to back concerts in the Islington park with South London electronic DJ Michael Bibi presenting his One Life show on July 6, and Irish 'Take Me To The Church' singer-songwriter Hozier playing on July 7.
