The benefit gig featuring Cathy Davey, Julie Feeney, Villagers, The Chapters, The Chakras and many more which was to be held in Dublin’s Vicar Street on February 11 has been cancelled.

The reason cited is “unavoidable circumstances”, which is a new one on me. Wonder how many tickets were sold for this gig and if audience fatigue is now beginning to hit some of the more hastily arranged shows? As we noted last week, every second gig at the moment seems to be a Haiti benefit gig and some of those putting on these gigs seem to have unreal expectations about how the show will do.

Tickets are refundable from the point of purchase. All proceeds from the show were supposed to be going to Trocaire’s Earthquake Appeal so it’s odd that there’s no mention about if and how people can just pass the ticket money to that appeal.
