We are really pleased to announce that The Boomtown Rats will be appearing in All Cannings at the 2014 Concert at the Kings.

The Boomtown Rats reformed in 2013. Bob Geldof said, “Playing again with the Rats and doing those great songs again will be exciting afresh. We were an amazing band and I just feel it’s the right time to re-Rat, to go back to Boomtown for a visit.” In June 2013, it was announced that the band would be embarking on a UK and Ireland tour supported by a new “Best of” album called Back to Boomtown: Classic Rats Hits.

The Boomtown Rats are Bob Geldof, Simon Crowe, Garry Roberts, and Pete Briquette.

In July 1985, Bob Geldof and Midge Ure (who performed at 2012’s Concert at the Kings) organised Live Aid which led to the biggest rock concerts the world had ever seen.

We’re delighted that The Boomtown Rats will be joining us on 31 May 2014.
