2022-07-03 Fontaines DC - Iveagh Gardens, Dublin

I've been waiting a long time to see Fontaines DC live again after last seeing them back in May 2019 at Forbidden Fruit.  Originally scheduled for July 2020, everyone's friend, COVID, got in the way and mae sure that didn't happen.  To make maters worse, the rescheduled date in 2021 didn't happen either, for the exact same reason! Fear not though, it is 2022 and not even COVID was going to stop this gig happening!  I packed my bag and headed off to the Iveagh Gardens in Dublin, for what promised to be one of the highlights of the year! So, was it worth waiting for?  Oh hell yeah!

Setlist (courtesy of  Setlist.FM ) is as follows: In ár gCroíthe go deo A Lucid Dream Sha Sha Sha Roman Holiday How Cold Love Is I Don't Belong You Said The Couple Across the Way Televised Mind Big Shot Hurri

Congratulations on a great gig at the Electric Picnic.  It ranked as one of the best sets of the weekend.  Was that your first Electric Picnic festival? Thanks very much, ya it was our first Electric Picnic and I can safely say our best!  We were actually booked to play the same stage two years previous, but we had to cancel unfortunately.  Delighted that it was ranked as a highlight of the weekend, it was definitely one of the highlights of our career so far, so its good to know the
