Following their triumphant anniversary show last year in Dublin’s NCH, PictureHouse have announced a once off show on November 23rd in The Academy to celebrate their “Karmarama” album from 1998.
“Karmarama” which achieved gold status, reached the Irish Top 10 and featured a string of hit singles including , “All the time in the world”, “Love in the streets” and the summer smash hit “Sunburst” which was the most played song on Irish radio for both 1998 and 1999 and appeared on TV ads as well as a film soundtrack.
Returning to the scene of the crime, PictureHouse recorded a live album in a venue called HQ – which was on the site of what is now The Academy. “This was a no brainer for us, after our Shine Box show in NCH last year, we found people wanted to hear these songs live again, we thought it would be great to go back do these songs on the site where we also recorded a live album back then! We’ll play the entire album and some other favourites. We can’t wait!”
Last year the band famously celebrated their 21st anniversary of their debut album Shine Box amid tributes from President Higgins, Dustin The Turkey and Bono.
