Several years after first playing the Marquee in Cork (in what was one of the best ever gigs at the big top), Nick Cave returns with Grinderman for a headliner at the venue on June 20.
A cracking live act, Grinderman takes the dirty, rocked-up sleazier moments of the Cave/Ellis combination and thrashes it out in a manner not befitting gentlemen of their years. Needless to say, it’s great and makes essential listening and viewing.
This is the first Harmonic gig announced for the 2011 Marquee series with rumours of a second at some point over the coming weeks. We’ll keep you posted.
Tickets go on sale this Friday (Feb 4) at 9am and are just shy of €50.
