MCD postponing all major gigs until the end of the month
There will be a fair few disappointed heads out there.
Event organiser MCD has announced that it will be postponing many of its events on foot of the government's advice to cancel all mass gatherings.
The directive came among a raft of drastic measures being taken to curb the spread of coronavirus, including the closure of schools, colleges, cultural sites and public facilities.
In a statement issued this afternoon, MCD said: "Following today’s Irish Government directive to cancel all events of over 100 capacity (indoor) and 500 capacity (outdoor) due to take place between now and 29 March MCD Productions has now postponed all affected shows.
"MCD Productions is currently working with artists and venues to reschedule all dates.
"Original tickets purchased for all affected events will remain valid for rescheduled dates which will be notified to patrons on confirmation.
"MCD Productions wish to thank all our customers and staff for their continued co-operation and understanding during this unprecedented time in the interests of health and welfare of all."
This will include the major Country 2 Country Festival that was scheduled to begin in the 3Arena tomorrow.
Despite the statement, tickets for various events are still being sold on MCD's website.
