Eagles Galway concert called off


A CONCERT planned by US band The Eagles in Galway has been cancelled.

The June 28th open-air event, due to take place at Pearse Stadium, Salthill, has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales.

Aiken Promotions yesterday announced that the concert had been cancelled “due to unforeseen circumstances”.

A full refund is available to people who purchased tickets or they may be exchanged for The Eagles concert at the RDS in Dublin on July 2nd.

A concert at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast will go ahead as planned on June 30th.

Tickets sales for the Pearse Stadium concert had been slow, despite a queue when they went on sale in Galway city in December.

Tickets for the cancelled show were on sale at €86.25 for standing and €131.25 for seated areas.

“Customers who purchased tickets for the Galway show via phone or internet will be automatically issued with a refund to their credit card which will appear within the next three to five working days,” said a statement from Aiken Promotions.

“Tickets purchased through outlets should be returned to point of purchase for refund.

“We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused,” the statement added.
