Four acts lined up for Malahide Cas­tle and there could be two more

Fingal Independent - - NEWS - By JOHN MAN­NING

AT least four ma­jor acts will rock the walls of Malahide Cas­tle this sum­mer with two more dates cur­rently un­der ne­go­ti­a­tion, the Fin­gal In­de­pen­dent un­der­stands.

The Cure on June 8, Ge­orge Ezra on June 21, and Lana Del Rey on June 22 have all been con­firmed for Malahide Cas­tle next year, in the last few days.

How­ever, the Fin­gal In­de­pen­dent un­der­stands a fourth big name will be added to that list very soon, in the shape of former Oa­sis song­writer, Noel Gal­lagher.

Gal­lagher’s ap­pear­ance will no doubt spark com­par­isons with last sum­mer’s gig at Malahide Cas­tle by his brother, Liam and the fa­mously war­ring brothers will no doubt want to stir that ri­valry up to see who emerges ‘king of the cas­tle’.

But the Malahide Cas­tle gigs are un­likely to stop at four dates, the Fin­gal In­de­pen­dent un­der­stands.

At least two more dates are un­der ne­go­ti­a­tion at the mo­ment but the names of the acts in­volved are yet to emerge.

The se­ries of sum­mer gigs next year is set to ce­ment Malahide Cas­tle’s re­turn as a ma­jor out­door venue for con­certs and marks the third year of that re­turn.

With The Cure, Ge­orge Ezra, Lana Del Rey and Noel Gal­lagher all lined up to play there next June, there is some­thing for ev­ery­one in this se­ries of con­certs which will cater to a wide range of tastes. It prom­ises to be a mu­si­cal sum­mer in Malahide in 2019.
