AIKEN Promotions has announced that Christy Moore will return to play Live at the Marquee Cork next July. 

Christy, who has been a regular in the docklands venue over the last decade, recently released a new single, Sail On Jimmy, which was recorded at the Marquee when he performed there earlier this year.

The much-loved singer-songwriter said: "I just love singing Albert Niland's song. More than any other, it has become an instant hit with audiences everywhere. We recorded this version at The Marquee in Cork on June 30. 4,000 people, who had never heard the song before were singing beautifully by the end of the third chorus….it was a joyful and memorable moment ….a stand out memory in 52 years of gigging."

Tickets for July 6 gig will go on sale this Thursday, November 15 at 9am.

He is the second act to be announced for next summer's concert series.

Tash Sultana was already announced for performances next summer.

From busking on the streets of Melbourne, Australia, the artists’ success has spiralled to see more 200 million streams of the Notion EP.

Tash Sultana will play Live at the Marquee on July 3 and Iveagh Gardens on July 4.

Tickets for both shows are available through the Ticketmaster website and nationwide outlets.
