Following on from their sold out Grand Social show and stand out summer festival performances TOUCAN announce headline Academy show.
TOUCAN are the explosive ten-piece funk-pop band blasting out a blend of feel-good, contagiously funky hits. Leading the group is Irish songwriter Conor Clancy and with a team of top performers from brass to keys behind him, their sold-out shows have proven them to be an absolute must-see.
Since releasing their debut EP they've racked up over one million international streams. The single “We Fell for Miles" peaked at #1 in the iTunes rock charts and sustained the Top 10 in Spotify’s ‘Ireland Viral 50’. The song has since been added to over 20,000 playlists and has received major radio play in Ireland, the UK, Australia, and all of North America.
To finish out 2018 they played only a select handful of dates, including Other Voices, before heading over to London for their debut headline show in March 2019. Their Spring UK & Ireland tour was a complete sell out including their London debut and debut headline with leading Irish agency MCD at The Grand Social. Their summer schedule includes main stage performances supporting Nile Rodgers & Chic, The Royal Albert Hall, Meltdown, Knockanstockan & Love Sensation. Other notable performances to date include sold-out shows at the Button Factory, WigWam, The Ruby Sessions and their incredible performance in Waterford’s Theatre Royal. Full Fall/Winter schedule coming very soon.
