Calling all music lovers! Council to release second phase of free Clipper concert tickets
Dates: 29th June – 5th July
Time: from 12.00noon each day
Location: Quay opposite Quay West restaurant
Following hot on the heels of the success of the Peace One Day Concert, next week will see not one but two spectacular music events being staged in the city as part of the Clipper Homecoming Festival.
After the first round of tickets were snapped up in record time last weekend, music lovers will be delighted to hear that they still have the chance to pick up tickets to see top class acts The Undertones, The Saw Doctors, Paddy Nash and the Happy Enchiladas, Paul Casey, Eoghan Quigg, and many, many more over two nights.
The concerts will take place on Thursday, 5th July, and Friday 6th July, and promise a real musical extravaganza for all. Thursday’s ‘Legenderry’ Concert showcases some of the finest local talent, led by the Undertones and local favorites Paddy Nash and the Happy Enchiladas, whilst Friday night’s ‘Clipper Connection’ event celebrates the city’s musical links with the countries participating in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, headlined by The Saw Doctors, including Red Hot Chilli Pipers and culminating in an impressive fireworks display at 10.30pm.
Tickets for the events will be made available daily throughout the first week of the Clipper Homecoming Festival, from Friday 29th June to Thursday 5th July.
Each day a batch of tickets can be collected at a special Derry City Council information point located on the Quay opposite Quay West restaurant from 12.00noon each day.
Anyone hoping to obtain tickets should note that they are restricted to two per person for each of the evening events (a total of four tickets per person), both of which are being staged at the new Ebrington Parade Ground concert venue.
While under 16’s are permitted to attend the event in the company of an adult, tickets are only available to adults over the age of 16, and ID may be required as proof of age. Parents are urged to accompany children hoping to pick up tickets to avoid disappointment.
A specific allocation of tickets will be given out each day, and once these are gone the allocation will begin again at the same time the next day.
