Niall attended the first gig back last night at the Iveagh Gardens where James Vincent McMorrow and Sorcha Richardson played outdoors for 500 people and about 25 media, with social distancing and pods. It was the first of the touted pilot events in Ireland happening in the coming months before the return of live music.
What was the experience like? How did it work? Did it feel normal? Niall tells Andrea about it all. We discuss the social and personal aspects of attending gigs post-COVID.

What was it testing or piloting exactly?
