Randy Newman Cancels Vicar Street Performance

randy-newmanRandy Newman has had to cancel his Dublin gig scheduled for this August 19th.

Randy is currently suffering from pneumonia and has also had to cancel his Antwerp performance.
The gig was scheduled to take place in Vicar Street, this forthcoming Monday. Newman is a two-time Academy Awards winner and has also had a Grammy, BAFTA and Emmy bestowed upon him for music he composed for movie scores for Monsters Inc., A Bug’s Life and Toy Story 3. The 69-year old has released a total of thirteen albums, the last of which released in 2011.  Newman has sent his apologies and added that he hopes to be back on irish shores soon. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back for another gig soon.

Full refunds will be available from the point of purchase and Aiken Productions have apologised for any inconvenience caused.

For now, here’s a video of Randy playing his classic from Toy Story “You’ve Got A Friend In Me”:
