Lord Of The Decks Elijah set for Dublin gig

LORD Of The Rings star Elijah Wood is coming to Dublin this summer, the Diary can reveal.

But the actor, left, will be showing he has more than one string to his bow when he comes to these shores.

He has confirmed he'll be spinning the decks at the first Bushmills Live festival which takes place on June 20 and 21 as he performs a DJ set.

Wood will be coming here with his pal Zach Cowie as he takes to the stage as his intriguingly-titled alter ego, Wooden Wisdom.

This will be the first time the duo have performed at an event together outside of the United States and are set to go down a storm. A busy time for the star, he has just completed Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, where he is reprising his role as Frodo Baggins.

The star, who has set up music label Simian Records won't be the only big name. Also joining him will be chart-toppers Snow Patrol, inset, whose fee from the festival is being donated to the Music Centre in Belfast.

Also on the bill are Iain Archer and Foy Vance.

Distiller Colum Egan is looking forward to welcoming Elijah. "He is a great actor and DJ and I have seen him perform at a fantastic Bushmills party in LA," he said.
