Vicar Street boasts some pretty unbelievable gigs. 

The intimate surroundings attracts the likes of huge names, such as Lana Del Ray, Ed Sheeran and now... Mr Booker T Jones

Yep, that's right, Memphis soul legend Booker T Jones has announced a date for Dublin’s Vicar St for tonight - Tuesday, May 2 2017.

For those of you not sure who we're talking about - listen to this:

Yep, knew you'd recognise that.

Jones is known for pushing music’s boundaries - with enough Grammys and Hall of Fame entries to shake a stick at. He's albums for Rita Coolidge, Bill Withers, Willie Nelson’s Stardust and so much more, but his own stuff is truly spectacular. 

Rolling Stone magazine have gone on to say this about the soul king: ''After 40 years, Jones is currently on tour. Catch him if you can, and change your plans to make it if you think you can’t.”

Tickets are priced €45.50, and would you believe it, there are still some left. Check out Ticketmaster for details.
