At a very special press conference in Liberty Hall this morning, four exciting gigs were announced. The original cast of the Commitments are getting back together to play nationwide shows in March 2011 to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the classic Irish film. The line-up includes Oscar winner Glen Hansard as Outspan Foster, but sadly no sign of Tudors star Maria Doyle Kennedy.
The mini-tour begins on March 14th in Mayo, before heading to Kerry and Belfast (on St. Patrick’s Day), and ending in Dublin on March 19th. Tickets for all concerts will be priced from €55.80 to €59.80. They go on sale on Friday at 9. Tickets for the Belfast gig are £36-£40.
March 14: The Royal Theatre, Castlebar, Co Mayo
March 15: The INEC in Killarney, Co Kerry
March 17: The Odyssey, Belfast
March 19: The O2, Dublin
