Dance The Night Away stars The Mavericks set for Belfast gig

Grammy Award winners The Mavericks are set to perform in Belfast next year, it has been announced.

The US stars, best known for their hits Dance The Night Away and Here Comes My Baby, will take to the stage at the Limelight in the city on Tuesday, February 6.

Tickets on sale Friday, October 13 at 10am from Ticketmaster and the Limelight.

The Mavericks were founded more than 25 years ago by Malo and Deakin as a standout alternative band in a Miami rock scene dominated by hair metal and punk.

They were noticed by super-producer Tony Brown in Nashville and got signed to MCA Records.

Their blend of Cuban grooves and Bakersfield-inspired twang netted them several CMA and ACM Awards plus a Grammy in 1995.

They charted numerous singles and albums while earning accolades as one of the best live bands in the business.

Following some time off and re-jiggering of personnel, but they came back with albums In Time in 2013 and 2015’s Mono.

The Mavericks released their new album Brand New Day in March.

“We’ve traveled a lot in the last four years. And we’ve come back from a hiatus of nine years to find a brand new purpose — not just to go out and play for tickets and do the oldies," said bandmemeber Eddie Perez.

“Not many bands get to come back from that long to have another moment like this. So I believe it to be quite special.”
