BRITISH pop band The Feeling and Irish electro-rockers Fight Like Apes have been added to the Arthur’s Day 2011 celebrations in Limerick this Thursday, part of a series of gigs taking place at the “Live @ the Big Top’ venue in the Milk Market.

The Feeling - best known for their 2005 smash hit ‘Fill My Little World’ - and the ‘Apes join a star studded line-up of Calvin Harris, Royseven and Sharon Shannon for the Guinness gig, which will see each of the acts also play in one of five pubs around the city on the night. Doors are at 5pm this Thursday.

Speaking to the Limerick Leader The Feeling said that “we’ve heard something big is going down in Ireland and elsewhere around the world in September... Arthur’s Day”.

“Playing live is the best part of this job so if you fancy catching us in Limerick make sure you get your hands on one of the last few tickets. All proceeds go to the Arthur Guinness Fund, a great cause, so come and be a part of it, it’s going to be amazing,” they added.

Sadly tickets are now sold out for the Big Top gig, but a handful remain on sale for some of the smaller, intimate gigs in the five pubs taking part, Nancy Blakes, Jerry Flannerys, Dolan’s Warehouse, Flannerys on Denmark Street and Mickey Martins.

The Stunning - with Hermitage Green and Eoin Coughlan - play the Big Top on Friday. Doors are 6pm for these gigs and tickets remain on sale.
