Patti Smith show moved under cover

With the Bank Holiday proving an absolute wash out weather wise, tonight’s Patti Smith show at Royal Hospital, Kilmainham will now take place across two tented stages. A statement from promoters POD reads as follows:

“This hugely anticipated show, initially set to take place on the outdoor Main Stage at the Royal Hospital is now being staged in two tented structures at the Royal Hospital. As of this morning, the official Met Eireann forecast for today indicates that ‘Winds will increase during the afternoon, with strong to gale force southerly winds and some severe gusts likely… Winds will veer westerly and decrease in the evening.’

In light of the inclement weather and gale force winds, two adjoining stages in two tented structures will be used for tonight’s show, with two artists performing in each one, none of which will clash with each other’s performance.

Set times will be:

New Secret Weapon: 6pm – 6:30pm (Tent 2)
Ariel Pink: 6:40pm – 7:40pm (Tent 1)
Spiritualized: 7:55pm – 9:05pm (Tent 2)
Patti Smith 9:15pm – 10:45pm (Tent 1)

The safety and comfort of our fans is of utmost importance and we want fans to enjoy what is sure to be an amazing show.”
