Limerick will definitely be the place to be in 2014!
The Irish city is indeed officially declared “National City of Culture” for the whole next year.
If you read Noel Hogan’s messages on Tumblr, you may have already seen his recent posts about the “Limerick City of Culture 2014” and followed his collaborative production projects for the town.
And here comes the next step today, the Limerick Leader just announced that Dolores O’ Riordan will be performing at the first ever New Year’s Eve concert to take place in Limerick. Something quite obvious when we all know that The Cranberries are still the biggest hometown band to this day!
Immediate notice: why Dolores solo and not The Cranberries?
No answer to that yet, anyways…
If you’d like to go to the show, tickets will go on sale tomorrow (Friday) on Ticketmaster.
A crowd of up to 2,800 people will packed into Merchant’s Quay in front of City Hall for the ticket only gig.
Dolores will be joined by the Irish Chamber Orchestra for an “exclusive worldwide performance” to open Limerick’s stint as National City of Culture. Other artists are planned and names will be revealed in the coming weeks.
The show will be broadcast on Irish TV RTÉ.
