The Waterboys Tickets
The Waterboys are a band formed in 1983 by Mike Scott. The band's membership,
past and present, has been composed mainly of musicians from Britain and Ireland.
The Waterboys have played in a number of different styles, but most often their music can be described as a mix of Celtic folk music with rock and roll, or folk rock. After ten years of recording and touring, the band dissolved in 1993 and Scott pursued a solo career. The band reformed in 2000, and continues to release albums and tour worldwide.

The Waterboys' early sound was dubbed "The Big Music" after a song on their second album, A Pagan Place. This musical style was described by Scott as "a metaphor for seeing God's signature in the world". It either influenced or was used to describe a number of other bands, including Simple Minds, The Alarm, In Tua Nua, Big Country, Hothouse Flowers and World Party, the last of which was made up of former The Waterboys members. In the late 1980s, the band became significantly more folk influenced. The Waterboys eventually returned to rock and roll, and have released both rock and folk albums since reforming. Their songs, largely written by Scott, often contain literary references and are frequently concerned with spirituality. Both the group and its members' solo careers have received much praise from both rock and folk music critics, but The Waterboys as a band has never received the commercial success that some of its members have had independently. Aside from World Party, The Waterboys have also influenced musicians such as Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Grant Nicholas of Feeder and Miles Hunt of The Wonder Stuff. Both Bono and The Edge from U2 are also fans of the band.
