Sounds of The Saw Doctors at the Slade Rooms

The sound of Irish effervescent energy is being scaled back in an intimate acoustic set when two giants of the late 80s music scene play Wolverhampton’s Slade Roomz.

Leo Moran, of The Saw Doctors and Anthony Thistlethwaite, of The Waterboys are bringing a two-hour unplugged show to the venue on October 26.

Both musicians enjoyed international success with their respective bands, both formed in the 1980s and each gaining critical acclaim from other bands including Simple Minds and Radiohead.   

The Saw Doctors burst onto the Irish music scene in 1986 notching up 18 top 30 singles including three number ones and holding onto the record of the country’s all-time biggest selling single with I Useta Lover.

“Renowned for their live performances the Saw Doctors maintain a cult following so it is a rare treat to have Leo and Anto, a musician who started out in such an influential band, taking to the Slade Rooms stage next month,” said Councillor Elias Mattu, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Communities.

The acoustic set will feature stripped down unplugged versions of Saw Doctors hits such as 'Red Cortina' 'Clare Island' and 'Same Oul Town.

Tickets cost £15.40, doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm. For tickets call Wolverhampton Civic Hall box office on 0870 320 7000 or go to
