2016 Plans for The Saw Doctors

The Saw Doctors – who have been on a break from live shows for the past three years – have begun rehearsals for a series of comeback concerts and tours this Autumn and Winter.

Rescheduled Killarney Show

Some Good News from The Saw Doctors: Davy Carton has just received a brilliant report from his Galway voice coach Michel who says Davy is making great headway with the rehab of his damaged vocal cords and will be back singing shows with The Saw Doctors early next year.

Also we’re happy to confirm a rescheduled concert in Killarney on Saturday March 25. Tickets for the cancelled Killarney gig on Dec 27 are not valid for the rescheduled concert on March 25 but there will be an automatic refund for all tickets for the cancelled Dec 27 show from point of purchase.

Our manager Ollie Jennings is working hard today with promoters to reschedule the Athlone and Galway shows for later next year—more details next week.


Cancelled 2016 Irish Shows

The Saw Doctors are sorry to announce the cancellation of the four Irish concerts just after Christmas, i.e. Killarney INEC on Dec 27, Athlone Radisson on Dec 28, Galway Seapoint on Dec 29 and New Year’s Eve – due to the illness of Davy Carton who is recovering from damaged vocal cords.

Because there are no rescheduled dates for the two cancelled Galway dates on Dec 29 / 31, the Galway promoter has also cancelled The Saw Doctors gig at Seapoint on March 18.

Refunds are available for all ticket-holders from the point of purchase. We apologise again for the inconvenience caused to fans of the band.


Dublin Shows

The Saw Doctors regret that they will not be able to play this week’s Dublin Olympia concerts on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Davy Carton is recovering from a minor throat operation last week and needs some more time to recuperate and rehab his damaged vocal chords. MCD have rescheduled this week’s three Dublin Olympia concerts for next March 10, 11 and 15.

Tickets for Friday Nov 25 are valid for the rescheduled date of Friday March 10 at the Olympia.Tickets for Saturday Nov 26 are valid for the rescheduled date of Saturday March 11 at the Olympia. Tickets for Thursday Nov 24 are valid for the rescheduled date of Wednesday March 15 at the Olympia.

Refunds are available for all three concerts from


UK Shows

It is with huge regret that we have to announce the cancellation of The Saw Doctors Winter UK tour as Davy Carton is still recuperating and resting his badly damaged vocal cords. We have rescheduled 13 of the shows to April next year and the two Glasgow concerts will take place on Friday 2 June and Saturday 3 June 2017

Tickets for the Nov / Dec tour are valid for the same city / venue in April / June. Re  the London / Glasgow shows the Friday ticket in December is valid for the Friday in  April / June and similarly with the Saturday ticket swap for the London and Glasgow gigs.

Tickets for the Wolverhampton gig are valid for the Birmingham Institute gig on April 30 as the Wulfrun is under repairs in April. Refunds are available from the point of purchase for fans who cannot make the April / June shows. Apologies for the cancellation of the UK tour.
