The Live at the Drive-In series of concerts has been cancelled.
Organisers say the concerts can no longer go ahead as planned due to government guidelines.
Gavin James, Aslan and Hermitage Green were due to perform dates in Cork, Limerick, Kilkenny and Waterford over the coming weeks as part of the series.
Those who bought tickets would have watched the concerts from within their cars.
A maximum of 300 cars would have been allowed on-site, with each of these holding 4 passengers.
Gavin James was due to perform a sold out gig in Limerick on Friday:

Event manager Mark Dunne says they were told by the DPP that if they did go ahead with the gigs they be held criminally accountable.
Not only that, Mr Dunne says artists and people attending the event also would have been open to charges.
In a statement, Organisers say "We have looked at all options and have sought out support and advice from several Government offices and officials, unfortunately with continuing changes with COVID procedures we can not confirm any alternate dates."
"After months of work and planning to try to bring some live music back to Ireland this summer we are all devastated. "
"We are very disappointed with this decision, the live music, arts and events sector is on its knees, we would appeal to the government to support this sector and all of it's to workers and suppliers. "
