Martin is thrilled to be taking his solo show to Ireland in October – the dates in Dublin, Limerick and Belfast will be his first dates in Ireland for almost quarter of a century!


“The gigs kick off in Dublin, which seems fitting as it’s where the Sprouts played their last full concerts” observed Martin.


Although born with the open road in his blood, Prefab Sprout appear to have had a forty-year aversion to playing live and he hope these new shows will address his gigging addiction.

He’ll be revisiting the repertoire written by his brother Paddy, that stretches back through the classic Prefab Sprout albums: Swoon, Steve McQueen, Protest Songs, Langley Park to Memphis, Jordan: The Comeback, Let’s Change the World With Music, Andromeda Heights, The Gunman and Other Stories, I Trawl The Megahertz and Crimson / Red.


Expect all the hits and pared-back acoustic versions of Prefab Sprout’s most beloved songs, along with some storytelling and the opportunity to meet Martin after the show.
