Find out more about the event, the National Concert Hall, how to get there along with Dublin hotels that are closeby.
The Olympia Theatre is located on Dame Street, opposite Dublin Castle, in Temple Bar and it’s only about a 15-minute walk from O’Connell Street. Head south across the River Liffey, you’ll pass Trinity College on your left and continue along walking down the length of Dame Street. If you’re driving there are two car parks nearby, namely Jury’s Christchurch and the Andrew’s Lane car park.
If you’re using public transport then any bus heading for the city centre will get you to within walking distance of the Olympia. The Green Line Luas stops at Saint Stephen’s Green, which is only about a 15-20 minute walk from the venue while the Red Line Luas has a number of stops on the north side of the river including the Jervis Shopping Centre and Abbey Street, which are closer again.
Tom Baxter is an English singer/songwriter who has enjoyed much success with his debut album ‘Feather and Stone’ which featured such singles as ‘My Declaration’ and ‘This Boy’. The album received much critical acclaim and led to a sold out tour of the UK and Ireland, to such a degree that two extra dates were added in the New Year.
Following this great success, Tom Baxter began work on his highly anticipated second album ‘Skybound’. Having split with his record label Sony, he recorded the album independently, and then released it in November 2007. The first single, a love story called ‘Better’, from this album was released on December 3rd.
Tom Baxter will be coming to the Olympia Theatre for a one night only concert on Thursday the 28th of February and will be playing all the tracks from his latest album as well as some of the favourites from his previous album ‘Feather and Stone’. The show gets started at 7:30pm, so be sure to arrive in plenty of time, as this is a standing only gig.
If you’d like to hang around town for the night, there are plenty Dublin hotels in the city centre to choose from.
