McCallion welcomes news on MTV concert for Derry

Sinn Féin Councillor Elisha McCallion has welcomed confirmation that MTV is to host a major concert in Derry this September.


She said “This is great news for Derry .


Since speculation appeared in the press a few weeks ago about a major concert I have been inundated with calls from people asking was this going to happen.


A lot of people were working away behind the scenes and in my role as chair of the development committee I asked for everyone to give them the space to get this across the line.


I am sure everyone in the city will be pleased to learn the confirmation I received from Derry City Council today that the music channel MTV will be hosting such an event in Derry this September.


This is still a work in progress, with the line-up  to be confirmed.mtv-logo
