The February show by Scottish singer-songwriter Amy MacDonald has been moved from the Sugar Club to Whelan's to meet demand.
Scottish songstress Amy MacDonald is enjoying massive success in the UK, where her debut album This Is The Life has just reached Number 1, beating Radiohead and Take That to the top spot.
And it seems things are also hotting up outside of the UK, as the demand for the 20-year-old's Dublin show has meant she's moving to a bigger venue.
Although many of her UK dates are now sold out, tickets are still available for her two Irish shows.
She plays The Limelight, Belfast on February 4, and, in a change of venue, Whelan's on February 5. Tickets are €16 from usual outlets.
"...there are songs about dead dogs, Pete Doherty, and even a Killers cover version, all of which are rapturously and raucously received."Read More

You know you’re getting older when new artists come along who were first inspired to pick up a guitar by Pete Doherty. Glaswegian Amy MacDonald is part of the new wave of musicians, equally versed in all aspects of the medium. What impresses most is that she has both a young and old head on her shoulders. She may take a great deal of her motivation from the sheer thrill of making music and hanging out with bands (her online diary gushes with tales of sitting behind the Killers at the Brits and the like) but ‘Poison Prince’ belies a maturity beyond her years. Her voice is rich and clear and the song marries a mainstream sheen with the kind of Scottish folk twang so beloved of the missing in action Sons And Daughters. An album follows in the summer, I’d keep an eye out if I were you.Read More
