Live: Counting Crows O2 Support announced

Press Release:

Following their critically acclaimed set at this year’s Oxegen Festival and their blistering SOLD OUT performance at the intimate Ambassador Theatre, the Counting Crows will return to Ireland for two live concert dates in December.

MCD is proud to present Counting Crows at The O2, Dublin on Saturday 20 December and Odyssey Arena, Belfast on Sunday 21 December, 2008. Featuring very special guests The Hold Steady and Melee, this is the line-up of 2008 and these promise to be unforgettable shows.

Tickets for Dublin and Belfast will go on general sale on Friday 15 August at 9.00am from Ticketmaster and usual outlets nationwide. A pre-sale open only to members of the Counting Crows Fan Club will run from 9.00am, 13 August until 6.00pm, 14 August.

Me blabbering:

Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes. We can never get enough Hold Steady over here. But supporting Counting Crows? Should it not be the other way around? There’s just not enough justice in the world. That’s right Lemar, that’s right.

Hold Steady are set to tour with Drive-By Truckers in the US. If only they came here, it would probably be the best gig ever.

Speaking of the Drive-By Truckers, you can a watch a video from their European Tour (no Ireland alas) here:
