If Elvis is the King of Rock N Roll then Johnny Cash is the King pf Country and Western music, and Eric Clapton must be the King of the Blues. But only 2 of those Kings ever visited Limerick.
Johnny Cash gave at least 2 concerts in Limerick. The first one on October 17, 1963, in the Jetland Ball room. On that gig June Carter accompanied him.
30 years later on February 10, 1993 he returned to the treaty city and performed at the University Concert Hall , this time Johnny Cash and June Carter had some help from another Country and Western heavy weight, Kris Kristofferson.
They played the following songs:
Ring of Fire
Folsom Prison Blues
I Still Miss Someone
Man in Black
Doin’ My Time
Long Black Veil
(with Kris Kristofferson)
(Ghost) Riders in the Sky
It Ain’t Me, Babe
