What we’ve done in Tour Management

Damo & Ivor ‘Horny Tour'

Jules and Andy (creators of 'Damo & Ivor’) approached us about working with them on some stuff including the management of their Horny Tour. Martin had worked with them previously and really liked them. We’re always on the look out for what Martin calls ‘like-minded people’ and he said Jules and Andy were exactly that – like-minded people and nice people to boot. We like nice people. So we met with them, we did a deal and out on the road we went bringing the Horny Tour to venues up and down the country both for under 18 and over 18 gigs.


The general gist of it

  • 2 very nice clients
  • Tens of thousands of happy punters
  • 1 broken wing mirror on the Cuckoo jeep
  • 1 long drive down to JD’s in Ballybunnion
  • Thousands of photos during meet & greets
  • 1 garden in Kerry with all the tacky, light-up Xmas decorations in the world
  • 2 huge sold out shows in The Wright Venue
  • Numerous back-up Damo peak caps

Why we loved this one

We really like Jules and Andy so we really loved working on this tour with them. They’re genuinely good people and we’re delighted to be able to help them with the on-going development of the Damo & Ivor characters and brand. 

Some of the challenges

The only challenge with this one was venues looking to book it on the same night. At one point we looked into getting a helicopter to do 4 gigs in one night, such was the demand. We didn’t, in the end. 


happy client says

"Well what can we say about Cuckoo Events? They're absolutely fantastic to work with! Our Damo & Ivor Horny tour has been a resounding success and, with our Damo & Ivor TV show on RTE2 coming up in the autumn, things are set to get even bigger for Damo & Ivor and we're fully confident working with Cuckoo Events that we'll take our shows to the next level of entertainment. 

The best thing about working with Cuckoo is that they ensure that everyone's happy from us, the artist, the club management and most importantly the clubbers attending the event, so we all make sure we put on the best event possible and that it's an enjoyable (and safe!) experience for everyone involved. 

Mark and Martin are ultimate professionals and a joy to work with so enthusiastic about their work, honest and fair and always ensure that everyone's happy and every event runs smoothly and efficiently. 

Cuckoo Events are quite simply all round brilliant people and a pleasure to work with!"
