THE CORONAS TO PLAY HOT PRESS WINDMILL LIVE SERIES
The Coronas have been confirmed for the latest in the Windmill Live series of gigs, organised by Hot Press. The free shows are part of a special initiative to celebrate the enduring musical legacy of the Windmill Lane location. The Coronas – one of the finest Irish bands of the past fifteen years and more – are set to grace the stage on Thursday, April 2. The gig will take place in the Town Hall, One Windmill Lane, an iconic new structure at the heart of the Windmill Quarter.

The gig is part of the build-up to what promises to be an incredibly busy and successful year for The Coronas. They will be just back from an Australian tour when they arrive in Windmill – and afterwards jet off to the US for a series of shows there.
They will doubtless be in super-fine fettle when they return to Ireland for the launch of their highly anticipated album, True
Love Waits – the main production duties are handled by acclaimed engineer and producer George Murphy (Ellie Goulding, The Specials, Mumford & Sons), along with Rob Kirwan (Hozier, PJ Harvey) and Cormac Butler (Academic, All Tvvins) – on May 29.
That night, the band play Live At
The Marquee in Cork – the first in a series of high-profile festival gigs over the summer. That is followed by a headlining appearance at the Saltwater Festival, Westport (May 30).
Four weeks later, they headline Fever Pitch Music Festival in Galway (June 27). And then comes the big one.
Uniquely, The Coronas are set to curate their own festival in 2020, the impressively titled Nowhere We’d Rather Be. They will headline both nights, in the beautiful environs of Kilruddery House & Gardens, Bray, on July 31 and August 1. Among the other acts lined up for the Kilruderry House bash are Tom Walker, Lyra, True Tides and Somebody’s Child (Friday); and Hudson Taylor, Gabrielle Aplin, Aimée and Thanks Brother (Saturday).
