DIRECT from the West End, and due to phenomenal demand, the hit theatre tour Seven
Drunken Nights – The Story of the Dubliners will be stopping by the LimeTree Theatre in Limerick in March 2022.
In 1967, The Dubliners released a song so controversial that it was officially banned on the
radio in Ireland. This infamy catapulted them into global success, and turned the Irish folk
band into legends.
From their roots in O’Donoghue’s Pub in Dublin, Seven Drunken Nights – The Story of the
Dubliners features all the highlights of an amazing fifty-year career.
Featuring some of Ireland’s most talented musicians, singers and storytellers the show will
be playing more than 125 prestigious venues – including 12 venues in Ireland.
“This is such an exciting time for Seven Drunken Nights, it feels amazing to head out on the road for our 5th anniversary tour,” explains Ged Graham, creator and show-producer.
“I don’t think that there is any musician in Ireland who hasn’t been influenced by their music. The Dubliners hold a unique place in the hearts of not only Irish people but people who love folk music generally and they epitomise the image of an Irish Ballad Group.”
“There is still love and respect for the music. When ‘The Dubliners’ name was retired in
2012, it sowed the seed for creating a show that would tell the story of The Dubliners, and
keep their music alive.”
With Irish craic, music and humour throughout, Seven Drunken Nights immerses its
audiences in the atmosphere of Ireland, giving people the chance to celebrate, through
authentic music and creative theatre, part of Ireland’s rich cultural history.
Ged adds “The show has grown each year and this year is no different. We have such a loyal and enthusiastic fan base; it’s fantastic to be touring the country that means so much to me personally.”
