Turn for farewell show
They call it a day in the Button Factory.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 03 Oct 2012
Irish indie veterans Turn wound down in 2006 but they've spent the intervening time determined to finally bow out in style. That farewell tour arrived in 2012 and, after a fantastic set in Stradbally, Ollie Cole and co have confirmed that they'll finish, fittingly, with one last show.
Mark the date: Friday December 21 is your last chance to catch Turn live. Playing in The Button Factory, back in the area where it all began, expect the hits and fan favourites, as well as plenty of emotion.
Tickets are onsale now, priced at €15 and are available from Ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.ie.

Indie stalwarts Turn are back with a new album and more thoughtful sound. Will the mainstream finally start paying attention?
The first thing that strikes you about ‘Stop’ is its complete lack of balls. There was a time when Turn were well on their way to becoming the best rock band this country has produced since Whipping Boy. However, the days of tracks like ‘Face Down’ and ‘Beeswax’ are seemingly over. Given the snip, ‘Stop’ is a slice of radio friendly day-time pop very much in the vein of Snow Patrol. There’s even East 17-style Christmas glistenings at the track’s close. Far from their best work.
