Live 2004[1]:309–326 is an album recorded live by the Irish folk band Planxty.

Recording[edit]

This live album was recorded during Planxty's third reunion (dubbed "The Third Coming"[1]:xii), which unfolded in late 2003 and into early 2004.[1]:309–326

Initial rehearsals at the Royal Spa Hotel in Lisdoonvarna, County Clare were followed by a gig there on Saturday, 11 October 2003 in front of 200 people.[1]:316

Planxty then played a series of concerts at the Glór Theatre in Ennis, County Clare (on 23 & 24 January 2004) and at Vicar Street in Dublin (on 30 & 31 January and on 4 & 5, 11 & 12 February 2004),[1]:317 which were recorded and from which selected material was released on the present CD and its associated DVD.

Another round of concerts took place in late 2004 and early 2005 in Galway, Belfast, Dublin and London.[1]:322–326
