The Coronas, one of Ireland’s biggest live acts, have been confirmed as the third act to play at Limerick’s Live at the Docklands series this summer.
The hugely popular band are bringing ‘The Long Way Home Festival’ on the road this summer, and are set to join the likes of Madness and Jenny Greene + the RTE Concert Orchestra to make up a cracking June Bank Holiday line up in Limerick city.
The Coronas will play their Limerick date on Sunday, June 2nd in the specially erected 6 pole marquee that will be installed as part of the Live at the Docklands weekend-long series of concert acts on Limerick’s waterfront.
The Live at the Docklands audiences can get ready to sing along to hits like ‘Someone Else’s Hands’, ‘Closer to You’, ‘San Diego Song’ and ‘Give Me a Minute'.
The Coronas will be joined by some very special guests for what's sure to be a show-stopping night on the banks of the Shannon.
The Coronas have built a huge Limerick following down through the years. The return of the band to Limerick’s newest waterside venue will be a welcome one for Limerick audiences.
The Coronas have established themselves as one of Ireland’s leading bands. Their career has seen play sell-out concerts at the O2 in Dublin, headlining Marley Park and hosting multiple nights Live at The Marquee in Cork.
Speaking at the announcement, Neil Dolan of Dolans Presents said: “The Coronas have been great friends to Dolans down through the years. The band performed some of their first gigs Upstairs at Dolans and since then have gone on to perform sell-out shows at the Warehouse, Live at the Big Top and at King John’s Castle.
“The band has built up a loyal fanbase across the Mid-west region. From selling out shows at huge venues across Ireland, to headlining international tours, the Coronas continue to rank as one of Ireland’s most exciting musical exports. We are delighted they are set to join us as part of the Live at the Docklands series”.
Since establishing the band in 2003 when they were students at Terenure College in Dublin, The Coronas have built a legion of fans both in Ireland and internationally.
The release of the student anthem, ‘San Diego Song’ in 2007, was a milestone for the band who have since gone on to chart three platinum-selling albums. They released their chart-topping first major label album ‘The Long Way’ in 2014 and since then have played sell-out tours of Europe and Australia.
Most recently the band has played their largest headline to date, playing to an sell-out audience of 15,000 at The Royal Hospital Kilmainham.
The Coronas completed a tour of the UK last year before heading off on a world tour which sees them in Europe, Canada, USA and finally Australia.
The Live at the Docklands concerts, set to take place on Limerick Docks on the June Bank Holiday weekend in 2019, were announced last December with Jenny Greene and RTE Concert Orchestra first to be added to the line-up. Since then British ska giants Madness also announced earlier this year.
The events will be hosted in a specially erected Marquee, giving Dolans the largest capacity venue it has brought to Limerick city to date.
Working closely with Shannon Foynes Port Company, Dolans Presents have identified the area of Limerick Docks located just off Atlas Avenue as a location for the Live at the Docklands series.
