1. Quique González and Los Detectives at The Grand Social

In 2016, during the promotional interviews for his latest album Me mata si me necesitas, Quique González11 confessed his wish of having his own band, following the rock camaraderie example of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band or Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Today, this wish comes to life not only for him but also for all of us who will be enjoying one of his two concerts that Rock Sin Subtítulos™ has prepared in Irish and British territory.

If you are a fan of this madrileño or are willing to discover why your Spanish friends like him, be sure to buy your tickets before sold out and prepare yourself to meet the great Charo!


Where: The Grand Social, 35 Lower Liffey St, Dublin
When: Friday 17th. Doors open at 19:00. The concert starts at 20:00.
Price: €26
