'Withdrawn': Steps were due to play at Thomond Park in July

THE concert featuring UK act Steps at Limerick’s Thomond Park has been “withdrawn due to unforeseen circumstances”.

In a statement issued by the booker via Thomond Park this Friday morning, it says the July concert has “been withdrawn” due to unforeseen circumstances and “beyond the control of Steps and the venue”.

It says other dates on the Summer of Steps Tour 2018 remain unaffected.

The statement says that “all ticket holders who purchased a ticket for the Limerick Thomond Park concert will be entitled to a refund and will be contacted by their point of purchase to process these ticket refunds”.

The reformed Steps were due to perform with Blue and Aqua at Thomond Park on Friday, July 6, with Claire Richards of the group telling the Limerick Leader in an interview that the band was “quite excited to come to Limerick, it seems like it’s going to be a really amazing show — especially as you’ve not had one for a while in Thomond Park — so that’s exciting”.

The concert was due to be the first major show at Thomond Park since Bruce Springsteen played the stadium in 2013.
