Ireland's reigning queen of rockabilly Imelda May, has announced a second date in Dublin this December. Imelda May will now perform at The O2 Dublin on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 December 2014. Tickets for this extra date, Friday 19 December, will go on sale on Thursday 22 May at 9am from usual outlets.
Since the release of her raucous debut Love Tattoo, back in 2009 (now 8x times platinum in Ireland), Imelda has been one of the most strikingly original talents in the music arena, taking her infectious blend of rockabilly, jazz, blues and torch songs from the back rooms of Dublin pubs to the biggest festivals in the world. Next up was the 6x times platinum album Mayhem in 2010, which she took on the road, bringing some good old-fashioned rock'n'roll spirit to audiences worldwide. With her live shows widely acclaimed, she has picked up fans as diverse as Jools Holland, Jeff Beck and Bono who dueted with her at her sold out 02 shows in Dublin 2011.
Her new album TRIBAL is No 1 in the Irish album charts. Far from mellowing with motherhood Imelda sizzles more than ever with her leather-clad attitude, returning with a brand new album of hard-edged anthems. Imelda is pinning her colours to the mast with music which celebrates the great rock'n'roll sub-culture and her own 'Tribal' allegiances.
