Russell Crowe’s Indoor Garden Party at The Gaiety Theatre

Hollywood super star Russell Crowe brings his Indoor Garden Party along with his band ‘The Gentlemen Barbers – special guests Lorraine O’Reilly and Janet Devlin’ to the Gaiety Theatre on July 1.

Starting in Rome at the Coliseum in June 2024, he’s on the road again playing music, and he’s bringing his Indoor Garden Party back to the UK and Ireland for the first time since 2017, beginning with a show in The Gaiety Theatre on 1st July 2024.

An “Indoor Garden Party” is, he says, “an event, a band, a happening. It’s fluid. The personnel changes, but it’s always big. It’s like a festival where I gather people I admire, musicians and storytellers, and we put on a show.”

The relationships within the band go back 30 years. Dave Kelly (drums) and Stewart Kirwan (trumpet) were members of Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts, as well as playing with Crowe in The Ordinary Fear of God, which included Stu Hunter (piano), and in its touring form also included Chris Kamzelas (guitar). James Hazelwood (bass) has fit right in and shares friendships within the band that go back decades.

Get ready for a night of music and stories as Russell Crowe brings his Indoor Garden Party, featuring his band The Gentlemen Barbers, Lorraine O’Reilly and special guests to the UK and Ireland this summer!
