Lewis Capaldi is putting on a last minute gig in Dublin following Bastille cancellation
You better act fast!
Earlier on Sunday we reported that Bastille had been set to play in Dublin's Olympia Theatre tonight (27 January), but on Sunday morning the group issued a statement confirming that the concert had been cancelled.
In a message posted to their official Twitter page, the foursome wrote that bad weather meant that their gear had not made it to Ireland in time. Their gear had been scheduled to come across on the ferry, all of which were cancelled last night due to inclement weather.
Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi (who JOE was lucky enough to chat to quite recently) was obviously looking forward to heading to the gig himself, but found himself in Dublin at a bit of a loose end, so decided to ask around if there was anywhere with an open-mic night willing to house a bit of a last minute set:
Following putting the question to the city on his Instagram Story, it wasn't long before he was announcing a last-minute gig for any fans of Bastille that found themselves similarly with a suddenly free night:
Yep, it looks like Capaldi will be performing a set in The Bleeding House on Camden Street in Dublin 2, and Bastille themselves retweeted the gig:
A couple of class acts right there!
