Ezra Furman's for the Academy
Due to demand, US musician Ezra Furman's Dublin show has been moved to the Academy.
The indie rocker, whose new album Perpetual Motion People was released earlier this month, was originally set to play The Workman's this autumn, but his October 20 show will now take place in the bigger venue.
Those who had tickets for The Workman's show are assured they will remain valid for The Academy headline gig. Tickets are priced at €14.35 and are on sale now from www.ticketmaster.ie
