Live But Not Dangerous


This afternoon.

Whelan’s, Wexford Street, Dublin 2 has announced the re-opening of its bar and concert venue for live gigs on August 10.

However, the club’s capacity, formerly 450, is now 88 with all shows being seated (strictly no moshing).

And there will be a number of safety measures.

For punters:

Assigned Seating at tables only.
Temperature checks at the entry.
Disinfectant hand rub at entry and throughout venue.
Table service only.
Advance booking only.
Lead contact details taken.

For bands:

No sharing of vocal mics.
Vocal mics disinfected after use and not used for at least 3 days later.
Vocal mics using pop shields.
Mic stands and leads also disinfected after use.
Socially distanced dressingroom.
No more than 3 or 4 on stage at any one time.
Safe distance between band and front of audience.

Looks like my crowd surfing days are over.

    Not unless Kate Bush starts gigging again.

    Jeasus, looks like it’ll be Irish bands only for a while.

    Can’t see international artists coming over to only sell 88 tickets.
