Can you believe it's already been ten years since The Kooks formed? Celebrate a decade of the catchiest Britpop to ever hit the airwaves when the band stop by Dublin to bring their Best Of tour to the Olympia.

The Brighton band, who first came to mainstream attention with their debut album Inside In/Inside Out, were signed to Virgin Records a mere three months after forming, and the same year, scooped the Best UK & Ireland Act award at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2006.

Drawing sonic influences from genres and eras as diverse as the British Invasion of the 60s, modern post-punk, reggae, funk, and hip-hop, the band has evaded pigeonholing, delighting devoted fans and new listeners alike and refusing to stagnate as their career evolved.

The quadruple platinum status enjoyed by the band for their first album in the UK, with platinum certification in Australia and two times platinum achievement in Ireland, and the entry of their sophomore effort Konk at number one on the UK Albums Chart in 2008 set the band off on a whirlwind of success. Subsequent albums Junk of the Heart (2011) and Listen (2014) have only further cemented their status as some of the most important pop-music makers in Britain.

You'll love them live.
