I didn’t think it was Whelans but that what it says on the official site. Black Pumas album is also fantastic and that one is on a Saturday! Yay! But another band not having BELFAST on their list @Murfocakes

I think it’s a lot to do with the venues these days. They seem to be pigeonholing that certain acts won’t sell here. Alternative or dance seems to be the main genres. Blacks box always seems the best bet these days but it’s small.
My ticket master app is still saying the grand social still so who knows...

That’s a real shame because Belfast is a plenty big enough city that it should have the same pulling power as Dublin. That said I’d love to see there being more gigs across the country in cities like cork/limerick/Galway too.

In general this country just keeps getting worse and worse for “all roads lead to Dublin” and it’s making Dublin a much busier and less enjoyable place to be.

I was dragged along to see them about 3 years ago. My mate when up to the Merch table after to see about buying a copy of K on vinyl but they told him ‘We’re not selling K here as Kula Shaker are promoting their new album, K 2.0.’ He responded, ‘Will why didn’t they play any fucking songs from K 2.0 and played all of K’. The next year they toured again and I see it was promoted as ‘Playing all of their classic album K in its entirety’ as opposed to playing it all, on shuffle.
