We are delighted to confirm that Hercules & Love Affair have confirmed an Irish date this summer at The Academy Dublin on June 1st as part of Heineken Music. MCD welcome Heineken involvement, a leader in sponsorship of Live Music events they have confirmed that their involvement will result in the ticket price for Hercules & Love Affair to be reduced to 30.00 euro including booking fee
Heineken Music? They’re the ones sponsoring the Nick Cave gig, aren’t they? The gig with the hefty €49.50 tickets for a sponsored event. Obviously, their “involvment” didn’t lead to cheaper tickets there. And there are still tickets on sale. Hey, maybe they’ll slash the price of tickets for that one too!
Second update, Tom Waits. Thanks to Jackie for pointing me towards this news story. Love the line about “Hot Press have learned”. Yeah, they read this blog. Only took them a week to get the story up there, though. Still, better than their yarn about how having The Kooks on the cover led to the band having a smash album. Shame that both The Ticket and Day & Night had the band on the cover a fortnight before that. Wonder why the “EMI source” forgot about those covers, eh?
