MUSIC: Picture This to headline big Malahide Castle summer gig 

Picture This have been the biggest selling Irish act in both 2017 and 2018.

sensation Picture This have announced huge outdoor shows for summer 2020 including a date at Malahide Castle.

The biggest-selling Irish act in both 2017 and 2018, and the nation’s hottest musical export in decades, Picture This arrived as a phenomenon with their self-titled 2017 full-length debut, ‘Picture This’.

Certified triple-platinum in Ireland, it held the number one spot overall in the country for four weeks, while topping the Streaming Chart for seven weeks.

Since the band’s formation three years ago, they’ve impressively sold over 400,000 concert tickets. In 2017 they headlined a sold-out UK and Ireland tour highlighted by gigs at O2 Shepherd’s Bush London, SSE Arena Belfast, and 3Arena.

Following over 150 million total streams and widespread critical acclaim, Picture This also recently shared a brand-new single entitled ‘One Night’.

On the new release, they said ‘One Night’ is not just a song about the complete and utter turmoil of being cheated on by the one you love, it is a defiant stance to that stage where the person who has done you wrong says they wish they hadn’t, and they wish that they had done things differently.

“This song is saying maybe if you didn’t go and cause all the hurt that you caused then you wouldn’t be in this desperate position,” they explained. “We hope ‘One Night’ helps people to not pick up the phone to the so-called lovers who have broken their hearts.”

The band once again deliver an eloquently crafted anthem that proves catchy, emotionally charged, and downright thought-provoking.

Underscored by delicate acoustic guitar and cinematic production, the tune details a heart-breaking discovery of infidelity with an unforgettable hook, “Maybe you shouldn’t have gone and ruined my life for one night.”

Picture This are currently on the road on a short European tour, that kicked off in Glasgow on October 24.

Summer 2018 marked the band’s first stadium tour in Ireland, which was capped off with a 35,000-person stadium show in the RDS.

During late 2018, they teamed up with super producer Jayson Dezuzio to record the 2019 follow-up, ‘MDRN LV’ which became the top selling album from an Irish artist in 2019.
