Al Porter & some very special friends are delighted to announce a very special show at Vicar St on 10th September.
“We’re delighted to be coming back to Vicar Street for a great night of comedy, featuring Al Porter, Alison Spittle, Linda Martin, The Sugar Cubes with more exciting guests to be announced. Together, we’re hoping to raise much needed funds to support Amnesty’s human rights work. We are so grateful to all of the wonderful performers and everyone involved who continue to support us and give freely of their time. Thanks to their generosity and hard work, all the proceeds raised from the event will go directly to help us fight human rights abuses, both here in Ireland and around the world. So come along and join us for what promises to be a fantastic evening of laughter and fun, all for a great cause.
“Fittingly this year’s gig comes at the end of Pride week. Around the world, LGBTI people continue to face discrimination and harassment. 76 countries criminalise sexual acts between adults of the same sex. Amnesty International is campaigning to change this. Every year, Pride marches in the face of threats and violence. These parades are not only inspiring celebrations of difference but also a declaration of intent. Through these events, demonstrators assert that they will not to be intimidated, that they will continue to demand equality, and that LGBTI rights are human rights,” said Colm O’Gorman, Executive Director of Amnesty International Ireland.
Tickets €25 are on sale now through www.ticketmaster.ie & usual outlets nationwide.
Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 7 million people in over 150 countries and territories who campaign to end abuses of human rights.
