At last, I get to sell-out a show
THIS week something happened in my life for the first time in seven months. I sold out a show!
That was the good news. Sadly, given the times we live in, I could only put 120 tickets on sale due to restrictions on audience numbers.
But, hey, I couldn't be more excited at the prospect of doing a live concert after all this time. If you saw the look on my face you'd think I was playing Croke Park or Wembley Stadium.
Even though there's a limit on the crowd attending the show, which is going to take place in Crumlin Road Gaol, Belfast, on Saturday, October 10, it is also being filmed and will be streamed online to a global audience the following Saturday.
So, you will be able to watch it from the comfort of your couch or kitchen on your laptop, phone, iPad or whatever device you use.
It'll be great to have people watching the concert from all corners of the world.
I hope to do a similar show at some point at a venue in Dublin, and I'm also planning a Christmas show in a similar format. This is going to be the new norm for the foreseeable future as we learn to live with Covid-19 until a vaccine comes along.
Our show in Belfast's Crumlin Road Gaol is supported by Powerscreen. It wouldn't have been financially possible to stage it without a sponsor, and I'm very grateful that they've come on board.
I will be performing with my full band, so we will pump every ounce of energy into the performance to make it a night to remember.
Tickets for the online show on Saturday, October 17, are available from www.dice.fm
