Imelda May will return to the Belfast Waterfront on 20th December 2017. Support has been confirmed as Mick Flannery.
Imelda, who begins her extensive 2017 UK & Ireland Headline Tour this week, has already sold out all the forthcoming Belfast & Dublin Shows this May. After a string of shows in the US and Canada, Imelda will be back in Ireland this December to play the Waterfront on 20 December and Dublin’s 3Arena on Friday 22 December.
Taking the biggest band line up she has ever toured, the shows promise to delight both old and new fans of Imelda’s music. Featuring members of her longtime band with some additional incredible musicians, the new line up brings the wonderful new material and old favourites to full colour whilst also showcasing Imelda’s unique ability to evoke the purest of emotion using her voice as her sole instrument.
Featuring the boldest, most personal and intimately autobiographical songs Imelda has ever written, the new Album ‘Life. Love. Flesh. Blood’ is one of the most critically acclaimed albums of this year going straight into the Top 5 in the official UK Album Charts.
Praised by publications including Q, Uncut and Mojo (“A powerful new direction”), The Sun, The Mirror to the Mail On Sunday (who made it Album Of The Week, gave it four stars and stated: “Great albums tend to be growers, but this one grabs you at first acquaintance”). Support also comes from The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph (comparing it to Bob Dylan’s classic album ‘Blood On The Tracks’) alongside support from US industry publications Rolling Stone and Billboard Magazine as well as UK tastemaker music publications from The Arts Desk to The Four Oh Five.
