MUSGRAVE Park is opening its gates for music lovers tomorrow night for the first of a week-long series of open-air gigs.

Fresh off the back of a headline performance at the Isle of Wight Festival, George Ezra will be playing to a sold-out stadium in Cork tomorrow.

The ‘Shotgun’ singer is riding on the crest of a wave since releasing his second album, Staying At Tamara’s, last year.

The album went straight to number one in 10 countries including Ireland, and has helped Ezra reach the next level where he is now headlining festivals across Europe.

One of the two artists that will be supporting Ezra are indie heavyweights The Vaccines, who have headlined festivals across the UK and have big hits like ‘If You Wanna’ and ‘I Can’t Quit’ in their arsenal.

Their performance will be a pleasant start to proceedings for those lucky enough to have a ticket.

Walking on Cars return to Cork on Friday for a sold-out show at Musgrave Park to celebrate the release of their seond album Colours.

Joining them on the day is Tom Walker and current holder of the top spot in the Irish Album Chart, Lewis Capaldi.

Both support acts have taken 2019 by storm, with Tom Walker turning heads with his debut single ‘Leave a Light On’.

The charismatic Lewis Capaldi has been number one in the Irish album charts for almost four weeks straight.

Summertime in Cork wouldn’t be the same without The Coronas coming to town. Instead of a slot at the Marquee again, this time the Dublin outfit will be playing at the 12,000 capacity stadium.

It’s not often that a support act could outweigh the headliner but Norweigan singer-songwriter Sigrid could do just that.

Ever since bursting on to the scene in 2017 with her debut single ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’ and electric performances at festivals like Glastonbury, Sigrid is one of the most exciting pop artists in the world right now.

Joining Sigrid and The Coronas are All Tvvins, who released their second album Just to Exist, earlier this year.

The band moved away from their indie roots and dived into a more poppy sound, showing no fear of taking risks and it looks to have paid off with a date with up to 12,000 Cork music fans.

For the first time since 1996, Liam Gallagher is coming back to Cork to play songs from his forthcoming new album Why Me? Why Not? while also reeling in the years with hits from the Oasis back catalogue.

Opening for the ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Star’ is Scottish sensation Gerry Cinnamon, who’s quick rise from small festival stages to selling out arenas has been frighteningly impressive.

In the thick of a world tour in support of his second album Wasteland, Baby!, Hozier returns to Cork for a quick diversion from his US tour, for what will be a memorable night on Tuesday.

On the line-up for his sold-out show are Maggie Rogers and David Keenan Closing out the series of concerts at Musgrave Park is the legendary R&B singer Lauryn Hill next Wednesday.
