VIP packages are also available and include light snacks, reserved tables, and a champagne toast at 7pm! Grab your friends, fill a table, and prepare to rock in the new year!

ABOUT SLANE: This has been a year of resurgence for U2, and their fans, with a new 40-song album on the shelves and their critically acclaimed residency in Las Vegas at the Sphere. The band “Slane” covers decades of hits as well as fan favorite “deep cuts” with a song list that grows with every show. Slane aims to capture the sonic experience of a U2 show and bring it to an intimate setting. After every show, attendees have approached the band genuinely amazed. They have told us they were able to close their eyes and imagine for one night, U2 came to the pine tree state. That is the highest compliment we can get, and it is the main goal of our shows. For New Year’s, we plan to take our live show to another level visually and sonically. Expect an energetic performance and a night of chart-topping Irish rock and roll. We can’t wait to bring this show to the Irish Heritage Center; they have been an amazing partner along our musical journey.
