John Spillane’s annual Christmas gig at The Everyman, John Spillane and Friends, was video streamed live from The Everyman stage straight to your home, with a special cast of ‘mystery’ guests.
“Hey lads, this is my 22nd year in a row playing on the Sunday before Christmas in my hometown of Cork in the gorgeous The Everyman auditorium. 22 good years playing music and writing songs and singing my heart out. The theatre has been lovingly restored over this time and is now one of the most beautiful halls in Ireland.
I love my Christmas gig and every year I invite my ‘mystery guests’ and this year will be the same. I’m sorry we can’t go on this journey in the same fab hall together this year but we will do our best to bring the show to your home, from the live stage of the Theatre of Dreams which is The Everyman.” – John Spillane
