My Husband and I attended a concert in the INEC recently and we really enjoyed it. It was a great show and very enjoyable. We were seated near the light and sound technicians which was a bit distracting. I was quite amused as two of them spent most of the time on their phones. The bar was open so there... More

My parents went to the Sean and Dolores Keane concert last night and couldn't take their coats off for the night because of the cold in the venue. The only time they were heated up was when they got two small cups of coffee at the bar. Disgraceful.
