In addition to ‘P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)’s UK success, P.Y.T. hit Top 10 in Ireland. John Gibbons has been invited to support a variety of artists including Justin Bieber at his Dublin stadium show, Tiesto, Calvin Harris & David Guetta, as well as being asked to remix tracks for the likes of Anne-Marie & Olly Murs.
