How’s everyone feeling after the gig last night? Heyday is still ringing in our ears and hearts, so we can only imagine how those of you that were actually at the show must feel! Even though the feed was dodgy in the beginning and Twitter crashed before the band even started, we still consider the live broadcast of the For The Birds anniversary show from Vicar Street last night to be a massive success. It was a great feeling of community, thinking about everyone else around the world who were tuning in to hear The Frames bring to life these meaningful songs from a specific moment in their history.
Thank you so much to the band and friends (especially Claire, Donal, Leon, Jerry and Shane) for everything they did to make this concert available to those who wanted to be there but could not. If you have any feedback about the live broadcast, please take a moment to share your constructive feedback with Donal by filling out this form!
We are grateful for the lucky folks in the audience took the time to record and share the gig. We’ve added video of the songs that have already been uploaded along with some photos and reviews on the gig page. If were at the show and would like to share your experience, feel free to drop us a line!
The other thing occupying our minds this week was the announcement of the Eddie Vedder/Glen Hansard US tour this summer. We’ve posted the dates with links to local announcements and/or ticket sales on the Glen dates page and we believe the general sale for most of the shows is tomorrow, April 1st at 10am local time. Good luck to everyone trying for tickets!
Aside from that we’ve no other updates for the week, but we already have some gems queued up for the coming week and of course will add anything else that comes up from last night to the gig page. Into April we go…..
