THE SAVOY THEATRE, Limerick, Ireland

EVENTS – MARCH 1966 to FEBRUARY 1988

This is an attempt to start a comprehensive listing of events which took place at this venue. I am taking March 1966 as my start date as I am personally interested in the Savoy as a venue for rock, pop and folk shows and the first such show took place at that time. However, I am happy to accept additions for prior to that date. Hopefully, with your help, we will eventually have a full listing. The list below has been made through newspaper research and my own personal list of events which I attended between 1978 and 1987 and there are certainly many omissions. It is also likely that there are events listed here that didn’t in fact take place – some concerts were advertised or mentioned in the newspaper and were subsequently cancelled – where the cancellation was not recorded in the newspaper the listing remains. All corrections & additions welcome, supporting evidence particularly welcome. I would also love to get information about support acts – a lot of local acts would be among them and it would be great to have them recorded. Mike Maguire – maguire1964@gmail.com
