Elvis plays Spirit of Ireland (virtual) Gala, December 10, 2020

With thanks to Amelia Demma for spotting this, Elvis is billed as playing the Spirit of Ireland (virtual) Gala on Thursday December 10, 2020. He was honored at the same event last year, when it took place in October in New York City.

Other artists appearing include Gabriel Byrne (who seems to be a fixture at these events), Paul Muldoon, Liam Neeson and (er...) that well known Irishman "Sting". Sting's Irish credentials seem to be that he married Irish actress Frances Tomelty in 1976 and (according to Wikipedia) moved to Galway in 1980 to become a tax exile. He separated from Tomelty in 1982. Ireland appears to be one of the few places where Sting does not now own property. I would have thought all this would have made him a certainty for a part in "Wild Mountain Thyme".

Tickets for the Spirit of Ireland Gala start at $5, and are available here: https://tickets.irishartscenter.org/donate/q/gala?
