I don't think I posted this - last Wednesday I had the pleasure of being in the audience in Vickar Street - John Sheahan at 80. What a concert, it was fantastic, the atmosphere was great. John was joined on stage by all manner of artists - his two daughters, one on fiddle, the other on Harp, his grandson, Raph McTell, Glen Hansard, to name but a few.
Did you know Siobhan Sheahan played Harp for the Pogues on Fairytale of New York.

Sounds like a great night Sinead .... but I hate Vicar Street due to its terrible seating, 50% of those on the floor are sitting with their drinks and friends behind them.

Agree Toss,
And do you still have to perch on tiny stools?
I have a policy now of never attending Vicar Street for that very reason no matter how attractive the act.

Don't do "the Point" either. Far too big. Last time I was there, my (2nd highest price) seat was in Fairview.

I agree about the seating in Vicar Street, can't understand why anyone would pay to sit on those pill boxes or to stand.
Front row of the balcony is acceptable.

The place is long due an upgrade, but the owners are not bothered as the punters still turn up regardless of its poor seating, Like you say Sinead, the balcony option is best if I really have to go there.

Bord Gais is a great venue.

I see Leo Sayer is back again in March. I saw him last year and he was top class - all his many hits and still got the voice.

I am lazy about listening - the radio is always on but rarely on a music station, usually topical programmes. If I wake during the night I would put on RTE1 and hear all sorts of music.

Went to the Olympia on Saturday to see The Roy Orbison Story. It was very good. Barry Steele was great as the voice of the Big O and the band were terrific. The lead guitarist was brilliant and I'm sure Grammer would have enjoyed it. The piano player Boogie Williams was just magic and played a few great Jerry Lee Lewis numbers which went down very well.The only complaint I'd have was the venue. The Olympia is very ornate but the seating is very tight and the policy to allow patrons to bring drink into the theatre needs changing. The amount of times we had to allow people in and out was ridiculous and on top of that my daughter had drink spilled over her,not pleasant.
