Hi,

Since Horslips in the Olympia on St Patrick's day has been postponed and it is increasingly looking like most pubs in Ireland will shut (even if they don't we should not be going out to pubs at the moment) I am going to organise another Horslips Virtual Gig for 17th March. The idea is that at a pre-determined time (I suggest 20:30 GMT) we all open the link to my Horslips Virtual Gig YouTube playlist and click play all at the same time.

I mentioned it to Taff55 yesterday when I was still in Derry with no internet but now that I am back in Dublin with broadband I can mention it on Fantasia as well.

It is the same playlist I used in 2017 with 17 Horslips videos I have taken at various Horslips gigs in the last nine years.

It starts with an access all areas look at the sound check for Horslips in Limerick with King of the Fairies and follows that with sixteen videos making up a set list for a virtual gig.

Here is the playlist link.

I am hoping that the Horslips admins might publicise it on Facebook and in the various postponed gig events so taht people who were looking forward to a St Patricks night Horslips gig can at least join in a virtual one.

I hope some of you can join in.

Regards,

John

Sounds like a good idea John, will try to do it. Quite easy for self-isolation here the past few days. -18 to-28C with a lot of snow. I fed a few deer out my back door yesterday. When it gets cold and their food is covered in snow they wander through the neighbourhood eating whatever shrubs and tree branches they can.

My Dirree Fo Naghtey, Don.

John(DD), we click that link and it auto-plays the tracks in order. I'll surely look in.


It's been a real rollercoaster week hopefully of we'll all have an appetite for some remote fun.

That was a great idea, enjoyed it thoroughly. Many clips which I had not seen before - especially Bim istigh ag öl at the end. Highlight for me was Johnny´s wedding. Think I´ll dig out the old mandolin and a few effects boxes tomorrow during the Home Office / Quarentine lunch break and see what happens - must not forget the Hawaiian Shirt too ;).

Goodnight all,

MikeM

Thanks John.

This is absolutely fabulous. A wonderful idea and amazing on so many different levels. Many many thanks to John for service above and beyond to all fellow Horslips fans.

May I wish everything healthy, peaceful and neighbourly to all other good people on this site, your wider families, friends and loved ones.

As the late great actor Michael Conrad, in Emmy-award winning role as Sgt. Phil Esterhaus in Hill Street Blues used to say "Let's be careful out there..."

It would be great if there was a media outlet to arrange live chats so we could all join in the conversation in real time. Maybe the lads could chip in as well. Even those of us on this side of the pond could be here earlier in the day if the originating chat was early evening in Ireland and other places in Europe.

Hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy.

Peace.

Great idea Don. I'm up for that if it is at all possible.
