Booking The National in a huge coup for Dolan’s and Limerick City. The Matt Berninger led band are critically acclaimed have established themselves as mainstays of arenas and festivals with sold-out performances and headlining slots around the world.
Tracks ‘Mistaken For Strangers’ and ‘Fake Empire’ from 2007’s Boxer LP are indie/alternative anthems.

With Dolans preparing to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their opening in Limerick, expect more acts to be announced shortly.

Speaking at today’s announcement promoter Neil Dolan said: “Fresh from headlining the All Together Now Festival we are delighted to announce a significant stadium headline act for Limerick’s Live at the Docklands series 2020.
“Securing The National for Limerick is a major coup for us and we are looking forward to playing host to what is truly a phenomenal live act”.

Their most recent album, ‘I Am Easy To Find’ featured female vocalists including Lisa Hannigan and went Top 10. Their previous LP, the Grammy® Award-winning Sleep Well Beast scored Number One in Ireland, UK, Portugal and Canada.
