Wow! What a way to introduce the newly rebranded Gleneagle INEC Arena with the announcement that Irish superstars Picture This are to return to Killarney on Friday December 20th for a one off gig.
The Athy based band have had an absolute bumper year with a record breaking string of 5 sold out gigs in Dubin’s 3 Arena, as well as a number 1 album and a world tour which has seen them become one of Ireland’s biggest and best bands.
Speaking about the announcement Mark Egan Director of Entertainment Gleneagle INEC Arena “Picture This first played with us back in 2015 as part of their ‘Journey starts here’ Tour and we knew then they were destined for greatness. We look forward to welcoming them back on December 20th when they will be the first band to play the newly rebranded Gleneagle INEC Arena.”
The Gleneagle INEC Arena rebrand has come about as a result of investing over half a million euro in production and technology, across lighting, sound and audio-visual systems, and an increased patron capacity of 4142. This means that they now have the infrastructure to cater for a wider variety of acts and artists.
Speaking on the Gleneagle INEC Arena rebrand Mark Egan said “This was a very important project for us – The re-branding of the venue to the Gleneagle INEC Arena accurately reflects the product on offer. Our new arena capacity coupled with our technological infrastructure enables us to cater for bigger and better touring productions which in turn provides a better customer and artist experience. The feedback from the artists that play here is always really positive. There is a certain kind of energy here, not replicated anywhere else.”
The last time Ryan, Jimmy and the lads visited Killarney in 2017, the show was the fastest selling gig ever in the INEC and here in the Kerry Journal office we’re sure that this gig could sell out even faster! Tickets are on sale NEXT Friday 19th July through Ticketmaster at 9am, definitely a gig not to be missed!
