Another epic week of concerts on Leeside
Hozier plays in Cork tonight.

THE stars will align in Cork this week with a packed week of gigs at Musgrave Park and Live at the Marquee.

With everything from folk to country to rap, this will be one of the busiest weeks ever for concerts in Cork.

Irish superstar Hozier will perform in Musgrave Park tomorrow night, after a packed weekend at the rugby ground that featured Oasis star Liam Gallagher, along with The Coronas and Walking on Cars.

Lauryn Hill will perform in the city on Wednesday.

Legendary hip-hop artist Lauryn Hill will take the stage there on Wednesday, closing out the park’s summer series.

Although Bros have cancelled their Marquee gig, there will still be plenty of action down at the docklands this week.

The Academic will take over the marquee on Thursday, following the success of their smash hit debut album, Tales From The Backseat.

They’ll be supported by Cork’s own Stephanie Rainey.

The RTÉ Concert Orchestra will be led by 2FM DJ Jenny Greene on Friday night, coming back for the second year in a row.

The unique mashup of classical instruments and classic dance hits has won rave reviews since it debuted in 2016. The orchestra will be in the big top again on Saturday night, but this time joined by some of Ireland’s biggest country stars for Classical Country Roads.

Sandy Kelly, Michael English, Lisa McHugh, Robert Mizzell, Ray Lynam, Patrick Feeney, Roly Daniels and Ashley Campbell will feature.

Unfortunately, 80s pop duo Bros have cancelled their Wednesday night performance.

The pair cited transport and logistical issues for the cancellation. “Matt and Luke would like to apologise to their fans for any inconvenience caused,” organisers stated.
