The John Murray Show

    Monday - Friday, 9 - 10am

    This week on the show we’re giving you a chance to see the legend that is Placido Domingo.

    We we’re lucky enough to get to speak to Placido Domingo on last weeks show and to say this is a man that has done it all is almost an understatement!
     
    The winner of eleven Grammy awards hasn’t performed in Ireland since 2004 so there has been a considerable amount of excitement around since the news broke that he is making a long awaited return to Ireland and will play Dublin’s 3Arena on May 31st.

    On the night Placido will be accompanied by the RTE Concert Orchestra and The John Murray Show want to give you the chance to be there so you can experience what is certain to be a very memorable night!
     
    Listen in each day for a chance to win a pair of tickets which include access to the 3Arena’s Private Members Club and dinner on the night.
     
    And on Friday we’ve got an overall prize which includes the tickets, dinner with access to the 3 Arena’s Private Members club and an overnight at the 4 star Spencer Hotel just up the road from the venue in Dublin’s IFSC.
     
    For a chance to win these great prizes make sure you listen in from Tuesday to Friday to find out what you need to do.
