News by Niall Byrne / May 19th, 2008 / Dirty Pretty Things venue change The forthcoming Dirty Pretty Things gig on May 31st has been moved to The Academy from its previous venue The Ambassador Theatre. All tickets bought for the previous venue will still be valid for the new venue. Share this:FacebookTwitter Posted in News Brian Chris Mental. How often does that happen? Col Well a little ambitious if you ask me. A one hit band trying to sell the Ambassador out? Too many gigs on and nobody has money! Brian Chris They did sell it out before. But i guess that was last year when they had hits and records. Sean Would have imagined them as more of a Whelan’s sized band myself… Daniel There’s still tickets left for this so that means that they haven’t sold even 500 tickets yet. A bit of a fall from grace for Barat especially when his crack-obsessed former band mate is in hugely unnecessary demand 🙂 Brian Chris Drugs are bad kids. And the capacity for The Academy is about 630.
