Live at the Marquee 2011

The flurry of acts playing in Cork as part of the 2011 Live at the Marquee festival is gathering pace. Two more were added this week, taking the number to 7. It is already looking like a much better mix than last year, in my opinion. While there's nothing to match the Harmonic (Grizzly Bear & Midlake) event just yet, it's still a good batch so far...

The Frames - June 11th.
Grinderman - June 20th.
Bryan Adams - June 22nd.
Imelda May - June 23rd.
Alexandra Burke - June 24th.
Christy Moore- June 25th.
Elton John & Band - June 28th.
Bell X1 - July 1st.

The double header of the Frames and Grinderman is what has grabbed my attention, though if MCD get there way, there won't be a single person at the latter. Tickets went on sale this morning at a staggering €49.20, excluding costs. When you add in Ticketmaster's cut, that's looking like €56.

Last year, the final line-up brought the likes of Snoop Dogg, Al Green, JLS, Blondie and Westlife to the city.
