Kodaline and James Vincent McMorrow rang in the New Year with 12,000 of their closest friends...
With a misty rain cloud settled above Dublin, 12,000 people made their way to College Green for the Three Countdown Concert - a sold out show with a lineup including The Whereabouts, Walking On Cars, The Dublin Legends, James Vincent McMorrow and Kodaline.
Despite the miserable weather, the crowd were in high spirits as Walking On Cars took to the stage. An upbeat performance of 'Hand In Hand' and chart-topper 'Catch Me If You Can' rounded out a successful year for the Kerry band. “Thanks for sticking with us through the cold” frontman Patrick Sheehy remarked before they left the stage for the Dublin Legends, who transformed the damp concert into a singalong trad session as they kicked things up a notch with the classics ‘Irish Rover’ and ‘Whiskey In The Jar’.
As James Vincent McMorrow took to the stage, the clouds were beginning to clear. Having set a rather high standard for himself following his stunning Electric Picnic performance, the Dubliner didn’t seem in the least bit daunted by the task at hand. Opening with fan favourite ‘We Don’t Eat’, his setlist consisted predominantly of songs drawn from Post Tropical with the odd Early In The Morning track sprinkled throughout.
