Lancaster Rockers, Massive Wagons announced a selection of headline shows in Ireland this coming August and today (Feb 20th) they have confirmed Dublin-based Hard Rockers, Jailbirds for support in Dublin and Limerick. 

If ever there was a band that personified the phrase “good things come to those who wait,” it’s Massive Wagons.

Whilst the Lancaster hard rock quintet have been active for a decade now, 2018 was the year the band truly made their mark on the music industry, touring with the likes of Status Quo, Dead Daisies and The Wildhearts, and landing at No. 16 in the UK Top 20 with their fourth LP, ‘Full Nelson’.

Massive Wagons have come a long way since their humble beginnings as a pub band. Whilst they’ve maintained a keen work ethic and steady release schedule since day one (chalking up an impressive discography with 2011 debut ‘Fire It Up’, 2014’s ‘Fight The System’ and 2016’s ‘Welcome To the World’), the thought that they’d one day be sitting pretty in the charts alongside their childhood heroes seemed like a far-off pipe dream, even just 12 months ago.


Fast forward to 2019, and not only have Massive Wagons managed to get numerous gigs in said local rock pub, but their ‘Full Nelson’ artwork has also been immortalised in mural form on the side of the building – much to the local council’s chagrin, who demanded it was taken down.

As a testament to the band’s loyal and growing fan base, however, a petition to keep the mural garnered 10,000 signatures in a matter of hours.

Joining Massive Wagons on their shows for Dublin and Limerick is non-other than Australian/Irish, Dublin-based hard-rockers Jailbirds.

Having released their kick-ass debut album “The Great Escape” last year the band has since wowed audiences in the UK at Bloodstock Open Air and Festivals in France not to mention sharing stages with the likes of The Answer, Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown to name just a few.

Tickets are on sale NOW for all shows. Please check Massive Wagons link here for a full list of dates and general information.
