HMV’S flagship store on Dublin’s Henry Street is set to open this Friday September 6th with an exclusive live performance from retro rockers The Strypes.

In a smart move that should guarantee a big crowd and plenty of publicity, the opening day will also include Door Buster deals, spot prize and competition giveaways, as well as a set from The Strypes.

The band are planned to take the stage at 12.15pm and after their performance will also spend some time in the store, doing a meet-and-greet and autograph-signing with fans.

The HMV Henry Street outlet will open its doors on Friday, while shops in Liffey Valley SC in Dublin and the Crescent SC in Limerick open the following day (Saturday September 7th). The store in the Dundrum Centre in Dublin will open week-ending September 14th.
