The jazz legends made their debut Irish appearance on 14th April 2002 at Dublin's Red Box (now Tripod) in support of their Partido Novo record. It was a great performance from the Brazilian masters, but a rather frustrating night from a fan's point of view. As far as I can recall the band were delayed getting to Dublin and took to the stage rather later than expected. Their show was then cut short due to a club night that was scheduled to begin in the same venue at 11pm. Lots of punters were rightfully really annoyed. It's definately the only time I've ever witnessed two band members leave the stage during a drum solo, only to return eating sandwiches and drinking beer. Legends.
