Chieftains fans get a 2-for-1 break
The Gallo Center for the Arts, in an effort to soothe the souls of disappointed fans of the Chieftains, is offering two tickets for the price of one to see the David Munnelly Band from County Mayo, Ireland. Because of family health issues, only two of the four Chieftains performed in Modesto last month. The concert by button accordion wizard Munnelly is Saturday, and the 2-for-1 deal is available only to Chieftains ticket holders. Contact the Gallo Center ticket office at 338-2100. Those who already have purchased tickets for the Munnelly show can receive a like number of complimentary tickets (to match those that they've already purchased). But act fast -- the deal ends Friday or when the center runs out of Munnelly tickets, whichever comes first.
