VerseChorusVerse announces special full-band shows


To mark the release of his highly-anticipated debut album, VerseChorusVerse AKA Belfast-based singer-songwriter Tony Wright has announced a special, full-band show in association with The Thin Air.

Featuring Jonny Black and Herb Magee from LaFaro and Stu Bell and Stephen Leacock (ex-General Fiasco, Desert Hearts), the Northern Irish supergroup of sorts (above) will bring to life what Wright calls “an edgy, full blooded, forward thinking, rootsy rock n roll album laced equally with hope and realism”. The free show will take place at Belfast’s Voodoo on Saturday, June 15. A Dublin show upstairs in Whelan’s will take place two nights beforehand on June 13.

Whilst it’s essentially free, there is a limited amount of tickets available for the show. If you’re interested in attending, head to the VerseChorusVerse Facebook page and send a message stating an interest and how many tickets you would like (limited to two per person). You will then receive a confirmation request.

Doors are at 10pm. Band are on at midnight. Special DJ sets for the night are yet to be announced.
