Forget the others who’ve been added to the Live at the Marquee lineup (like Bob Dylan, Imelda May, Tom Jones, and Bryan Adams), there’s one person coming to Cork who really excites me. No not Katherine Lynch, although I must ask who would pay to see her live? She’s brutal beyond words.
Legendary songwriter Paul Simon will play Live at the Marquee on the 21st of June. His new album So Beautiful or So What comes out on April 12th, and I posted a preview of it last month here:
Simon last played Cork in summer 2008 at the same venue, and was stunning, so hopefully he’ll be just as good this time around.
Tickets priced €60-€70.70 are on sale Tuesday, 15th of March. No word on a Dublin date yet, but if he doesn’t announce one, I may well have to head down to Munster to see him.
