It's been some couple of weeks for gig announcements, that's for sure. Metallica have been confirmed for Slane, Ocean Colour Scene are hitting up the Olympia, Mumford and Sons are coming to the 3 Arena and it looks like Westlife will be performing at Croke Park next summer.
Richard Ashcroft has now added his name to the stellar list of iconic acts coming to the capital in the near-future. The former frontman of The Verve is bringing his Natural Rebel tour to the Olympia Theatre on Monday May 29 2019 with tickets going on sale next Friday (October 12).
While Ashcroft's solo stuff is definitely good enough for the show to sell out, those on the fence might be encouraged by the fact that his recent shows have included some Verve classics (below).
Looks like the bank balance might be taking another hit next week. Oh well.
