Tickets for the pilot event that features James Vincent McMorrow and Sorcha Richardson go on sale this Thursday.
Last week, it was revealed that a number of pilot events would commence in June as part of the new plan from the government to reopen the live events sector.
We later found out that in association with the National Concert Hall, James Vincent McMorrow and Sorcha Richardson would be playing the first standing music gig at Iveagh Gardens which is capped at 500 people.
Since then, the Chief Executive of the National Concert Hall has said those attending the concert will likely be given antigen tests for Covid-19 before entering the concert. Meanwhile, the standing gig will consist of pods marked out to ensure social distancing.
Tickets for the concert go on sale at 10.00 Thursday 3 June on a first come first serve basis on the National Concert Hall website.
The concert will also be available to stream after the event.
