Glen Hansard took to Twitter yesterday and announced that he would play an acoustic set in Dublin tomorrow night, Wednesday September 23rd - but of course there was a catch.
The Irish singer revealed that it’s set to take place in a “empty building on North Great George's St” and you need a wristband to enter, available in Golden Discs in Stephen’s Green with the purchase of his newest album.
I'm doing an Acoustic gig on Wednesday at an empty building on Nth great George's St. Pick up a wristband at Golden Discs, Stephens green.— Glen Hansard (@Glen_Hansard) September 21, 2015
Hansard tweeted the deets at 5:18pm and by 5:47pm Tower Records informed fans that the wristbands were sold out.
Hi folks. All wristbands for @Glen_Hansard on Wednesday in Dawson st are gone. See you lucky punters then!— Tower Records Dublin (@TowerDublin) September 20, 2015
Are you one of the lucky ones that secured a ‘golden ticket’?
Hansard also surprised fans at this year's Electric Picnic by taking to the Salty Dog stage unannounced.
