Iconic Irish band The Stunning are coming to Wexford as part of Spiegeltent.

In the seven years that The Stunning were initially together, they toured relentlessly building up a following that would make them one of the most successful Irish bands ever.

Made up of Joe Wall, Steve Wall, Derek Murray, Jim Higgins and Cormac Dunne the band have reformed several time over the years since their initial break up and they remain one of the most sought after band on the music festival circuit.

In 1990 their debut album 'Paradise In The Picturehouse' spent five weeks at number one and became one of the most-loved Irish albums of all time. Two years later, the follow up 'Once Around The World' also hit the No. 1 spot, and the band went on to sell over 100,000 albums in Ireland alone.

'Brewing Up A Storm' has become an anthem of sorts and is to be heard everywhere from football stadiums to clubs around the country where it is still a guaranteed floor-filler. Songs such as 'Half Past Two', 'Romeo's on Fire', and 'Everything that Rises' are still to be heard on the radio and have been featured in movies and numerous compilation albums of the best of Irish rock. They toured the US and the UK with the likes of Bob Dylan and the B52's. During their time, the band scooped every music prize and award going and they were rarely off the airwaves.

The Stunning will perform at the Wexford Spiegeltent Festival on Saturday, October 17 at 10pm. Tickets on sale now at the Spielgetent office.
