Liam Gallagher and Lauryn Hill announce summer concert dates for Cork

Two major acts have been announced to play at Musgrave Park this summer.

Liam Gallagher and Lauryn Hill will perform at the rugby stadium as part of a series of six concerts that will take place from June 20 to 26.

Multi-Grammy winner Hill will bring the concert series to a close on June 26 with a performance of the hip-hop classic 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill', which was released in 1998.

Gallagher will perform on June 23. He previously performed in Cork as part of Oasis, with the band playing two sold-out shows at Páirc Uí Chaoimh in 1996. He performed a solo show at Dublin's Malahide Castle last June.

The two acts join George Ezra (June 20), Walking on Cars (June 21), the Coronas and Sigrid (June 22) and Hozier (June 25) in performing at the rugby ground in Ballyphehane, just south of Cork city centre.

Tickets for both Lauryn Hill and Liam Gallagher will go on sale this Friday, February 15.
