Very interesting gig announcement today. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Frames’ For the Birds, Glen Hansard and company will be playing the full album from start to finish at Vicar Street.
The gig takes place on Wednesday, 30 March, with tickets priced €30 on sale next Monday, January 24th.
Here’s the setlist of the first half of the gig. I have no clue what the second half will bring though (expect other Frames classics)
1. In the Deep Shade
2. Lay Me Down
3. What Happens When the Heart Just Stops
5. Fighting on the Stairs
6. Giving Me Wings
7. Early Bird
8. Friends and Foe
9. Santa Maria
11. Mighty Sword
So many fantastic tunes. The album was the band’s first top ten record in Ireland, reaching #6. It even received a 7.5 from Pitchfork back in the day.
