After having to postpone his Irish gigs last month after a bout of laryngitis, punk-poet geezah Jamie T has rescheduled dates next year in bigger venues due to demand. The Londoner is now playing the Mandela Hall in Belfast (upgraded from the Limelight) on February 9 and Dublin’s Academy (upgraded from the Village) on February 10. Tickets for both gigs go on sale at 10am tomorrow, Friday 13, from Ticketmaster and usual outlets. The Academy gig will set you back 18.95 including booking fee, and tickets for the Mandela Hall cost £15.50. If you have a ticket for one of the postponed gigs it’s still valid.
In a MySpace message, Jamie said: “I would like to say thanks to you all for your kind messages and your patience over the last couple of months, it’s been a frustrating time for all involved but I’m happy to say that we will be back on the road soon.” Ah bless.
