Pink set to take Gracelands by storm

THE UK’s number one Pink tribute act is set to take Gracelands Ballymaguigan by storm this Saturday night - and it’s all in aid of charity.

Alecia Karr will perform live hits from the global superstar’s huge array of singles, including ‘There you go’ (Can’t take me home) as well as tracks from award winning albums ‘Missundaztood’, ‘Try This’, ‘I’m Not Dead’ and the 2008 album ‘Funhouse’.

Backed by a fully complemented disco and super sound system, Saturday, August 25th at Gracelands is set to be a top night, which will be raising vital funds for those living locally with cancer.

The Pink tribute night is part of the South Derry venue’s efforts to help Ballymaguigan Lady of the Lough Edel Gilligan in her fundraising attempt for Charis Cancer Care.

Edel is up against 11 other local ladies representing their local pub or restaurant to raise the most amount of money in an eight week period. The lady with the most money will be crowned Lady of the Lough 2012.

Fundraising began on August 1 and the final night will be held in the Shepherds Rest, Sixtowns on October 6 where the winner will be crowned.

Speaking ahead of her gig at Gracelands, top tribute act Alecia Karr said: “Saturday 25th is just around the corner and I cant wait! “My show is full of everything you would expect from a Pink gig and more, so get your dancing shoes and glad rags on and get ready to party.”

Gracelands manager Shaun Coleman added: “This is a show not to be missed, Pink fan or not, and it’s all for a good cause.”

“Disco kicks off at 8pm with Alecia on stage for her first performance at 10pm strict so get there early. Everyone is guaranteed a great night.”

Admission is free on Saturday night so get in early as it’s guaranteed to be a popular night. Gracelands is located at 179 Shore Road, Ballymaguigan.
