So, what an interesting week of concert announcements. Where to start?
U2 at The Odyssey. Yes please, will be trying to get tickets for that.
Biggest Weekend, Manic Street Preachers and Beck playing Titanic Slipways in May. Yes plese, will be trying to get tickets for that.
Erasure in Dublin was cancelled this week, rearranged for March. Hoping they do a Shed Seven and sneak in a Belfast gig as well with their rearranged Dublin gig.
Not a concert, but I got a ticket for An Evening With Eric Cantona at Waterfront Hall in October.
Paloma Faith has announced an outdoor gig for Edinburgh in August. I might make that my week to go the Edinburgh Festival. I’m giving her Belfast concert in March a miss as it’s all seater, so hoping a Belsonic or CHSQ announcement is being embargoed until after that.
