Dermot Kennedy Announced For Irish Independent Park
It's the first of two announcements this morning for Irish Independent Park.
Ahead of two sold out 3Arena shows this December and following the incredible international success of his debut album Without Fear, Dermot Kennedy today announces his biggest homeland headline shows yet at Malahide Castle Dublin and Irish Independent Park Cork next Summer.
Dermot will perform at Cork's Irish Independent Park on Saturday June 27th and Malahide Castle on Friday June 26th.
Tickets will go on sale on Friday November 8th at 9am and are priced at €49.90.
Dermot Kennedy tells us his debut 12-track album is “my best effort in presenting myself to the world,” he thinks. And as ever, it shows his ability to span a whole range of emotions, often in the space of just one song.
“I wanted it to represent darkness and sorrow but also hope, and that battle between them, and the way that in life you’ll inevitably experience beautiful things and terrible things,” he says of the LP. ‘Without Fear’ dwells directly on a time when, just as he fell in love, he lost a close family friend. Writing songs has helped him deal with that rollercoaster time. “This is the only way I know how to put feelings across,” he says. “Great people like Van Morrison, they did this too. So, you’ve got to do it.”
Undeniably, Kennedy is on the way to becoming one of the greats himself. Thanks to the success of songs like ‘Lost’, ‘Outnumbered’ and the career-defining ‘Power Over Me,’ he has gained over 750 million streams and boasts 11.5 million listeners monthly on Spotify alone. He has received a nod in the BBC Sound Of 2019 and was voted NPR Slingshot’s Best New Artist of 2018. He has toured Europe, America and Australia, and made his debut on US television on the Stephen Colbert show, soon followed by an incredible performance on The Ellen Show. “I’m still pinching myself every time we put a tour on sale and it sells out,” says Kennedy, whose hypnotic live shows have become word-of-mouth sensations.
