Soul legend Al Green is to play an extra date at Vicar Street on October 27.
The Reverend is touring his recently released album, Lay It Down, which features the voices of renowned Green fans John Legend, Anthony Hamilton and Corinne Bailey Rae, and was co-produced by “?uestlove” from the Roots and James Poyser (whose credits include Erykah Badu and Common).
Tickets for the gig go on sale this Thursday (September 18) at 9am, starting at €69.
From the moment he bounds onstage at the Marquee, it is obvious that Al Green is not just happy, but ecstatic to be here.Read More

It’s the Reverend Al doing pretty much as he’s always done.Read More
