With a new album in production, it’s curtains for the Closer To You concert tour!
The Closer To You tour took The Coronas all around Ireland, Scotland and England, and on a massive road trip of mainland Europe, before a final homecoming at the Festival Dome in Tralee.
The lads shared the bill with superstars Elton John, Justin Timberlake and Bon Jovi. Big venues, little venues. . . .Slane Castle, the Royal Albert Hall, The O2, The Coronas rocked them all.
A big thank you to the thousands of fans who supported the band on their successful tour. We hope you enjoyed it, and are looking forward to the next one!
Here are some of our best bits.

Feels like its been a while since we’ve been on tour properly so let me bring you up to date with the goings on over the last few weeks…
We’ve signed to a great indie UK label which has led to lots of press, promo and now a full UK tour; we’ve released Mark My Words (with a hottie starring in the video!); and we’ve announced a little gig in the O2 in December in Dublin!
It’s a really exciting time for us to be honest. Being an independent band in Ireland, we always released and promoted our own albums but now that we have a group of people who believe in us and are trying to make it happen for us in the UK, it feels like a new chapter is starting for us.
This tour is back to basics, small but cool venues (such as King Tuts tonight in Glasgow), and a hectic tour schedule (8 gigs in 10 days, over 1500 km travelled and lots of radio promo along the way) and I can’t wait.
First up is Glasgow and apparently it’s gonna be a full house. As I sit in a Starbucks writing this I flick through the free Metro magazine and come across this article about us. Think it’s gonna be a good couple of weeks…
