We mention it here as Phantom’s own Nadine ‘Nadser’ O’Regan is one of the judges. With John Caddell last year it makes two years in a row that Phantom have a representative on the panel which is great. This might help as well though! 😉 Also kudos to Una, Dan (ex-phantom) and Sheena McGinley (Kiosk contributor). Big job ahead!
As per Jim’s page:
“The live event will take place in Vicar Street, Dublin on Wednesday February 27th and will feature performances from as many of the acts who can play on the night (we’ll be announcing the full details in the next few weeks). Tickets, priced €27 euro including booking fees, go on sale on Monday next. ”
BTW: where are the Future Kings of Spain? Nadser, we shall be having words!
