Pogues and Radiators from Space guitarist Philip Chevron saddened and shocked the Irish music and arts world last month by revealing that the cancer he has battled since 2007 has become incurable and terminal.

Now, using the time-honoured football tradition of giving a departing player a send-off - a Testimonial - some of Philip's friends and colleagues have gotten together to offer a special tribute concert, which will take place at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Saturday August 24.

Artists confirmed so far for the Philip Chevron Testimonial Concert include Horslips, Luka Bloom, Declan O'Rourke, Brush Shiels, Shane MacGowan, Patrick McCabe, Gavin Friday, Duke Special with Fiona Shaw, Paul Brady, Joseph O'Connor, Mary Coughlan, Paul Cleary, Aidan Gillen, Fiachna Ó Braonáin & Liam Ó Maonlaí, Roddy Doyle, The Radiators from Space, Michael O'Connorand family, Terry Woods and Camille O'Sullivan.

A feature of the show will be that performers will offer their own work along with selections from Chevron's own songbook, including some items never heard before in public.

Tickets for the Philip Chevron Testimonial Concert on Saturday 24th August are on sale from usual outlets, priced €30.
