Dublin's Olympia Theatre is to undergo major renovation work this year.

While the historic venue says its working on bringing in a number of big acts in 2020.

Work on the 1,600 capacity theatre will be mainly maintenance and electrical. While there will also be some external facade upgrades.

General manager John Johnston told US music industry website, Pollstar, that it is part of continual works at the Dame Street venue that have been underway over the last few years.

It's included the complete refurbishment of the public bar areas, new removable stall seating, as well as major upgrade works to the stage systems.

He went on to say the venue is working to bring a number of major acts to the venue later in the year.

The Olympia sold more than 200,000 tickets in 2019.

Last year's acts included Lizzo, Lewis Capaldi, Gerry Cinnamon and Gavin James.
