Tickets for the gig can be purchased at the Strand Theatre box office at 11am from this date.

Aslan, who are named after the heroic lion in CS Lewis' Narnia books, emerged from the working class areas of Finglas and Ballymun in Dublin in the mid 1980s.

The band broke up in 1988 but in July 1993, having played what was supposed to be a one off charity gig in Finglas, the spark was re-ignited and Aslan landed a new record deal with BMG and have gone from strength to strength in the intervening years.
