On Monday Glen Hansard took to Twitter to announce he would be playing an acoustic gig in Dublin on Wednesday night.
And naturally every one wanted to be in the audience.
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
The gig took place in an empty building on North Great George’s Street and judging from the video it looked incredible.
Hansard treated fans to songs from his new album, Didn’t He Ramble, as well as some favourites including finishing the night off with a rendition of The Parting Glass.
Roddy Doyle also made an appearance reading some of his famous Two Pints shorts, which delighted the audience.
Fans told the Irish Examiner that the intimate venue made the gig all the better and that words couldn’t do it any justice.
Some of the new songs Hansard played included Winning Streak, Her Mercy and McCormack’s Wall.
Dublin born Anderson was also performing at the gig playing support.
