A "Bird on the Wire" is worth two in the bush, but I booked my Sligo hotel last night, so hope the date is still ok.

Hmmm - "concerts", plural. Does this include the "missing" northern show on August 10 I wonder?

I presume the promoters are anxious to announce all the Lissadell House concerts at the same time. It will be interesting to see if there is place for a 2nd Leonard Cohen concert. Be prepared to bring your kids for a Westlife concert on one of the days. They've been trying to find a local venue for some time and I'll be surprised if they're not on some night.

I hope Westlife anre not on one of the nights I'm there as my accomodation is directly across from the venue and I'd be able to hear them ;-) However though I'm not a fan it would be nice for them and their fans for them to have a decent sized concert in their home county. Well home county for half the band!

Can we expect more gigs, do you think, or will it be just Sligo?

I see in the schedule thread that Sligo isn't to be announced until Wednesday, but I heard the national broadcaster this morning (Gerry Ryan) giving tickets out to people for the gig. I didn't hear all of it so not sure if it was a competition or what but he was all excited about the gig! So has it been announced yet officially or did I miss it!? :D

Yes, Gerry Ryan announced it officially this morning. And he launched it with a competition for 2 front row tickets and an overnight stay.

I'm sure the setting and the surrounds in Lissadell will be beautiful, but it's a tough place to get to ( I don't drive ) and I'd imagine a bit of a bottleneck to get in and out of - thoughts of the Barbara Streisand gig come to mind.
Sadly I won't be going to Sligo - I was kinda hoping he'd do Dublin again - still I can't complain and I can't be greedy - I've seen Leonard live seven times in the last two years......awh memories :D

I hope it's a great event and that everyone going from here has a truly wonderful time.
Kind Regards, Joan.

I thought it would be a open air standing event. Was to be an stress free presale purchase, now it sounds like it will be a mad scramble :roll:
