This Should Be A Good One! Another Act Has Been Announced For Cork's Live At The Marquee

The Waterboys have been announced as the latest act to play Cork's Live At The Marquee.

The announcement comes following the release of the band's new album Modern Blues, which was in Nashville by Mike Scott and Steve Wickham with American musicians including Muscle Shoals legend David Hood.

Produced by Waterboys' Mike Scott and mixed by Bob Clearmountain, the album contains nine freewheeling rock and roll songs with a southern soul edge.

While Scott lives mostly in Dublin, he says that the decision to record in the iconic city was central to the feel of the album.

“Nashville has a reputation as Music City, USA and I fancied some of that. It’s one of the few cities that still has a recording studio industry intact, which brings the spur of competition. I know that across town Jack White's making a record, The Black Keys are making theirs.  I like that competitive feeling, it’s exciting. It's a spur.”

The Waterboys play Live At The Marquee on Sunday June 28th, with tickets going on sale on Wednesday February 25th at 9am.

Other acts already confirmed for this year's festival include Lionel Richie, Kodaline, Status Quo, The Frames, ZZ Top, The Coronas, Riverdance, Van Morrison, Nathan Carter, Christy Moore and Damien Rice.
