Jools Holland Confirms 3Arena Date for October 2020

Following a sold out Dublin show last year, Jools Holland has confirmed a 3Arena date on October 23, 2020 with his acclaimed Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.

Just like his previous Dublin shows, Holland will be joined on vocals by Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall. This is alongside his fellow Squeeze member Gilson Lavis on drums.

Singles ‘Up The Junction’ and ‘Cool For Cats’ gave British rockers Squeeze meteoric success. Their popularity rapidly extended to America, where their tour included performances at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

In 1987, Holland formed The Jools Holland Big Band – comprising himself and Lavis. This has gradually metamorphosed into the current 19-piece Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, which consists of pianist, organist, drummer, three female vocals, guitar, bass guitar, two tenor saxophones, two alto saxophones, baritone saxophone, three trumpets, and three trombones.

Holland is also a renowned TV presenter thanks to Later… with Jools Holland, a music show. It celebrated 25 years, 50 series and over 360 episodes broadcast on BBC Two with a special show at the Royal Albert Hall in 2017. The 53rd series concluded in November 2018.

Holland’s achievements were formally recognized in June 2003, when he was awarded the OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List.

Tickets for his 3Arena show are from €60 including booking fee. They go on sale this Friday (August 16) at 9am. For more please go to
