Three months shy of their 50th anniversary as a recording act Horslips have slipped away.
Here’s the announcement from 20 minutes ago:
‘Horslips regret to announce that due to health issues the upcoming gigs, already rescheduled due to Covid restrictions, have now had to be cancelled. This applies to Derry, Dublin and Waterford. We’re really sorry about this but it’s due to circumstances beyond our control. They won’t be rescheduled. Arrangements are being made for ticket refunds where this hasn’t already happened. We’d like to thank all our fans who’ve waited so patiently and been so loyal to the band. We’ve absolutely loved playing for you and hope you enjoyed it half as much as we did.’
Here’s something from their last TV performance, on Ireland’s TG4 in 2019.
