It's been a busy morning for gig announcements, as two very different but nevertheless very popular acts have announced Irish gigs for 2020.

James Blunt is the latest act to join the roll-call for the Live at the Iveagh Gardens gig series. He'll play the Dublin venue on July 12th 2020; tickets are €54.50 including booking fee, and on sale from usual outlets on Friday, November 25th at 9am.

Blunt has just released his 'Once Upon a Mind' album, but no doubt there'll be a few tracks from his 2002 breakthrough'Back to Bedlam' on the setlist.

Meanwhile, dance music stalwarts The Chemical Brothers have announced a gig at Cork's Irish Independent Park.

Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons released their latest album 'No Geography' earlier this year and will be bringing their tour to the park on June 30th. KETTAMA and James Holroyd will join the duo as special guests.

Tickets are €49.90 including booking fee and on sale this Friday at 9am.
