Horslips play The Big Top in Limerick’s Cornmarket Row on August 8 in association with Dolan’s Bar and Raparee Productions.
To complement the recent publication of the book, Tall Tales: The Official Biography of Horslips, the keepers of the band’s official site www.horslips.ie are compiling the definitive, chronological list of every known live appearance made by Horslips.
The gig dates listed on the site are accompanied by a range of historical curiousities, including ticket stubs, crew passes, tour programmes, set lists, posters, press ads and clippings, photographs and video footage.
The list of concerts, launches, TV and radio appearances is still under web construction, and has reached 1975 at present. Five more hectic years of touring would keep Horslips busy until the first break-up in 1980 before eventual reforming over 25 years later.
Tickets for the Limerick gig - from €31.50 - are available from Ticketmaster: www.ticketmaster.ie
