LEGENDARY Irish trad-rockers Horslips are to play a Live at the Big Top gig in the Milk Market in August, it has been announced.

The Celtic prog-rock band will play their first Limerick show in 35 years on Friday, August 8.

The gig, presented by Rapparee Productions in association with Dolan’s, is to kick start the Sarsfield’s Day Festival taking place in the city that weekend, and is also being backed by Limerick City of Culture.

Huge interest is anticipated in the gig given Horslips’ guitarist Johnny Fean spent his formative years in the city and lives in Shannon.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, priced at €28, excluding booking fee. Tickets from Dolans.ie or from all Ticketmaster outlets.
