Leopardstown Racecourse is thrilled to announce a first for the summer series with the visit of legendary US rapper Coolio.

Coolio, he of 'Gangsta's Paradise' fame, will play Bulmers Live at Leopardstown Racecourse on Thursday, June 13th.

Coolio took over the world rap scene in the 90's through the immense success of 'Gangsta’s Paradise', which won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance. It sold over six million copies and was Billboard Magazine’s number one single in 1995.

The rapper went on to win an American Music Award, three MTV awards, two Billboard Music Awards and a total of six Grammy nominations. And now he's coming to Ireland.

Advance entrance ticket price is only €17 (book here), or entrance tickets on the day are €20.

Coolio is just the first announcement of Bulmers Live at Leopardstown 2019, with another seven more artists set to be revealed for the summer, which begins on Thursday, June 6th. The remaining acts will perform right through July, and the final event will take place on Thursday, August 15th.
