What a great way to kick off a dreary Wednesday morning: John Grant and Wilco have just been announced as the first names on the bill for the 'Live at the Iveagh Gardens' gig series in Dublin next summer.

Grant, who has just played two sold-out gigs at Vicar Street in support of his new album 'Grey Tickles, Black Pressure', will play on Saturday, July 9th.

Chicagoan rockers Wilco - who have not played a headline show in Ireland since 2009 and released their new album 'Star Wars' earlier this year - will play on Sunday, July 10th.

Tickets for John Grant are €40 including booking fee, and on sale next Thursday (November 19th) at 9am from usual outlets; Wilco tickets are €50 including booking fee and on sale next Friday (November 20th) at 9am.
