Sad news for Cork & for Ireland today.
It has been officially confirmed (through RED FM) that 2020 will be the final year of the Live At The Marquee summer series of gigs in Cork.
The gig series has run for 15 years. Hosting acts like Elton John, Brian Wilson, Kanye West & Jay Z alongside a plethora of big Irish names.
However, a spokesperson at Glenveagh Properties confirmed to Cork’s Red FM today that the site would be sold, likely to be developed into residential properties.
That’s, unfortunately, one less viable gig space in Ireland & a vital venue and income revenue for Cork gone.
Hopefully, the venue will relocate to a new location, we’ll keep you updated.
