Grand Canal Theatre to change its name

Er, what?

The Grand Canal Theatre is to change its name to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre from 7th March 2012, according to reports this lunch time.  Is this a joke?  Bord Gáis only recently put up their prices again for domestic customers and yet they have the money to sponsor a name-change of a theatre for the next 6 years?  I can't imagine this will do their PR image any good.  Apparently though, the deal includes discounts on tickets for BG customers and the GCT will switch to Bord Gais for the energy supply.  Hopefully there won't be quite so many texts as from O2 re: the PointThe O2.  I feel quite grumpy about this news.
