The Commitments To Tour Ireland in 2011

***UPDATE – 15:26: Pictures taken this morning of the reunited Commitments Members***
Well, they came and played Liberty Hall this morning as promised, the original Commitments line-up with the exception of Maria Doyle Kennedy. For pictures, check out KDamo

***Original Post***

Well folks, the rumors are true. Legendary (yet semi-fictional) Irish band, The Commitments are set to reunite for four shows next year, marking the twentieth anniversary of the film’s release.

According to Independent.ie the original cast are set to return with the possible exception of Maria Doyle Kennedy (to be confirmed). The confirmed dates are

The Royal Theatre, Castlebar, Co. Mayo on March 14th,
The INEC in Killarney, Co. Kerry on March 15th,
The Odyssey, Belfast on March 17th
The O2, Dublin on March 19th.

Tickets are priced €55.80/€59.80 (£36/£40 in Belfast) and go on sale from Ticketmaster on Friday, October 15th.

The news is currently being launched at Liberty Hall with the cast set to play a small show for press. We’ll add an update as soon as all the facts are in.

We know reuions are a given these days but this is one no-body thought could ever happen but after 20 years of Irish people sitting around constantly calling for one, it appears prayers have been answered and we’ll all finally get to see the saviors’ of soul on a live stage.

Tickets There will be fighting with internet connections and probably a million Irish and international folks to grab tickets for The O2 so…back off, they’re ours 😀 Also, the band will be donating a percentage of each ticket sale to Irish Cancer Society (and no, they haven’t lost their concern for the growing heroine problem, they just want to spread the help around).

For more information about the tour, please check out The Dedicated FaceBook Page which has all the info.
