The rescheduled shows in December and January at 50% capacity quickly sold out when they went on sale this morning.
Due to the guidelines announced by the Government to combat COVID-19, folk legend Christy Moore has had to reschedule five of his ten shows at Vicar Street in December and January.
As all indoor concerts must now be run at 50% capacity, organisers Aiken Promotions announced yesterday that his gis on December 8, 14 and 16 plus January 3 and 9 are now cancelled with shows at half the capacity on those dates announced instead. Tickets went on sale this morning but quickly sold out.
Moore will be supporting his new album Flying Into Mystery at his upcoming shows.
In his review, Hot Press' Jackie Hayden raved about the record writing, "a Christy Moore album is never less than provocative. But this is one is more than that. We want this album. But we surely need it even more. Flying Into Mystery is a great record – and a genuine contender for Album of the Year."
The announcement of these new restrictions on Friday evening was met with dismay by many Irish musicians.
"From the perspective of industry I work in , not once throughout this pandemic did I feel in safe hands when it came to our leadership , not once did I feel empathy or solidarity from them. I genuinely expected more from them," Niall Breslin of The Blizzards wrote on his Twitter account.
