LIMERICK music venue Dolan’s will mark 20 years in business in Limerick with a special show by legendary act The Waterboys in the Big Top this week.

To mark the significant milestone, Dolan’s are bringing Mike Scott, Steve Wickham and friends to the Milk Market this Wednesday night for a special anniversary show.

Expect classics from the band’s 30 year career, including songs from seminal albums such as Fisherman’s Blues, A Pagan Place and This Is the Sea, plus new songs from an album recorded in Nashville and due for release next year.

Limerick band Parliament Square are on support duties, a slot which is fitting given Dolan’s long standing policy of supporting local music at all times.

“We are very excited,” said Mick who runs the venue along with wife Valerie and son Neil. “I am a fan of the Waterboys. It is going to be a very special gig and I am looking forward to it.”

“They are an international act and to get that quality of act into the Big Top, which is an intimate venue no matter what, is great.”

A limited number of tickets remain on sale for the gig from Dolan’s. Doors open at 7.30pm.
