Dempsey for Stables
Damien Dempsey has been confirmed to play a rare solo show at the Bog Lane Theatre in Ballymahon, Co. Longford on Saturday November 28.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 27 Oct 2009
Tickets will be limited in number to 68 and Dempsey will be supported by Eoin Glackin.
Dempsey has had a busy summer, not least playing to massive audiences at Croke Park supporting U2 and as a headliner at Electric Picnic. His Bog Lane gig could be one of the few chances you’ll have to catch Damo on his own with his guitar before he heads into the studio in the new year to record the follow up to 2007’s To Hell or Barbados and the acclaimed The Rocky Road.
The show is being promoted by Stables Live and No Ego Promotions. Doors open at 8:15pm.
Tickets on sale now from www.tickets.ie or www.ticketgroup.ie or 086 4072441 or from the Yukon Bar, Mullingar

Your writer is just as fond of the throwaway, the frivolous and the ephemeral as the next person, but it takes someone as integral as Damien Dempsey – back, here, with his third studio album – to remind you how empty, or, alternatively, full of shit most music is. That’s not a negative statement, just a true one.
