In the wake of gig cancellations left and right, The Coronas have found a solution in rescheduling their full capacity gigs to next year, while promising fans 50% capacity gigs this December.
Due to government restrictions, The Coronas have rescheduled the True Love Waits tour to December 2022, as these shows don't fit in the new government restrictions of 50% capacity in Irish venues.
Everyone from music artists, events managers and promoters, nightclub owners, DJs, gig photographers, stage crew, theatre employees, sound engineers and more have seen their work for December decimated as a result of the rise in cases - presumed to be because of the new Omicron variant.
Despite this, The Coronas have announced four new half capacity shows, True Love Prevails, for this December. They will take place on Thursday December 16th and 17th, at 6pm and 9pm each night.
The band hopes that these shows will provide much needed work for staff and crew before Christmas and a lift when it's needed, now more than ever.
Initially an indie success story, the band built up a huge student following in the late nineties with popular anthems 'San Diego Song' and 'Heroes or Ghosts'. Over the next 12 years, they developed musically and grew their audience to become on of Ireland's biggest bands, selling out arenas, theatres, and headlining festivals in the process.
After the pandemic hit in March 2020, not only did it stop their world tour plans and delay an album release, it also left the Dublin 3-piece with an unfortunate band name issue. Not to be perturbed, the band released the album True Love Waits in August, securing the number 1 spot in the album charts, outperforming Fontaines D.C. and Taylor Swift, while also becoming the fastest selling Irish album of 2020.
Tickets for the 4 new shows will be on sale Wednesday, December 8th at 9am. You can purchase tickets here.
