Some familiar faces will popping up at the hottest gig in town this side of Christmas. Tickets are selling out fast thanks to Irish chart toppers Walking on Cars who are taking the stage at City Hall in aid of CUH Children’s Unit.

The four piece from Dingle who are currently on tour in Germany, will jet back to Cork to play an intimate acoustic set to headline the event on 16 November.

Glanmire native Stephanie Rainey also features, while newcomers to the music scene Brave Giant who have just released their debut album ‘White Pink and Blue’ are taking a night off their Irish tour to support this fundraiser.

Michael Nason, CEO of CUH Charity, said: “We are thrilled that some of the hottest names in Irish music have been so willing to give their time and make this fundraising concert such an unmissable event! All money raised from ticket sales will directly contribute towards equipment including an EEG machine, which diagnoses seizures and epilepsy, and an echocardiogram which can help pinpoint congenital heart disease. The existing children’s wards will also need be refurbished as well as the children’s emergency department. It is vital that we have excellent facilities at this critical and busy point of entry to the hospital.”

The event will be hosted by Today FM’s Fergal Darcy, while Cork’s 96FM’s KC will be the night’s resident DJ. A number of additional, yet-to-be revealed special guests will also join Fergal on stage throughout the night.

The €75 tickets for the over 18s event can bought at cuh.clearbookings.com.
