    THE MARQUEE
    Cork's Marquee was hopping last night as the Momma Mia show continued its final week on the banks of the Lee.
    The venue may be temporary but it is one efficient operation: parking, toilets, bars (five euro for a plastic glass of wine) and seating all have queues but, thanks to an abundance of helpful personnel on duty, key points are covered and queues move very quickly indeed and the show starts bang on time.
    While the big six pointed tent may be temporary, it is an annual fixture here since Beach Boy Brian Wilson kicked off the Marquee events in 2005. Bob Dylan came a year later to be followed by Elton John (07), Eric Clapton (08) and Blondie (09) plus many more acts over the mid summer months each year.
    Mamma Mia, on Sunday night, finishes this season's programmes. It is the first time that a stage show has had a run here. Acts earlier in the summer included: Megadeath, JLS, Al Greene, Kenny Rodgers, Snoop Dog and Tony Bennett and others. Something for everyone. Put it in your diary for 2011.
