The Coronas’ journey as a band has definitely been unique. Initially an indie success story, the band built up a huge student following in the late noughties with anthems like ‘San Diego Song’ and ‘Heroes or Ghosts’.
Over the next decade, (and years before that unfortunately named virus came along!), they would continue to develop musically and grow their audience to become one of Ireland’s biggest bands, selling out arenas, theatres and headlining festivals in the process.
In October 2022, they released ‘Time Stopped’, which went straight to number 1 in the album charts, becoming the first and only independent Irish act in history to score 3 consecutive number 1 albums.
In support of the release, the Dublin 3-piece embarked on their biggest world tour to date, selling out venues across the globe including in London, New York, Vancouver and Sydney.
November sees the band return to Australia with very special guest Roison O.
“We’re buzzing to get back to Oz,” enthuses lead singer Danny O’Reilly “Our last shows there were our best yet and to hear that we are now going to be playing in iconic venues such as the Enmore and the Northcote is just amazing.”
With numerous multi-platinum albums under their belt and a reputation for being one of the most consistent and impressive live acts in the country for over a decade, it is no surprise that an unfortunately named virus could not stop them.
