First pilot concert event to take place at Iveagh Gardens tonight

Iveagh Gardens will play host to the first in a series of pilot concert events this evening to an audience of 500 people.

James Vincent McMorrow along with special guest Sorcha Richardson will be performing at the show, to which tickets sold out instantly.


The tickets were available in pods up to a maximum of four people. The concert is set to begin at 7pm with the doors opening at 5:30pm. A number of health measures will be put in place such as staggered access times, socially distanced queueing systems and pods, hygiene stations, as well as the wearing of face coverings when outside the pods.

Those who present symptoms of Covid-19 have been asked to not attend the show and will receive a full refund as a result.

The event, which is being presented by the National Concert Hall (NCH) with the support of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, the OPW and Dublin City Council, has been long-awaited with the CEO of the National Concert Hall Robert Read stating that the NCH was thrilled to lead the return of live music as Covid-19 restrictions are eased.


Stating that he expects the show to be both a positive and emotional experience, James Vincent McMorrow said that it will be an important night for his 40-strong band and crew who will be back working for the first time since the pandemic hit. The National Concert Hall will also be broadcasting the event online for free which can be watched on nch.ie or NCH YouTube.
