Bjork will perform in Dublin for the first time in 22 years

BJORK HAS announced her first gig in Dublin in 22 years.

The iconic singer will gift Dublin audiences with her legendary presence for the first time in over two decades this November when she takes to the stage at the 3Arena.

It will be the first time many of her fans will have gotten the opportunity to see her.

The Icelandic woman, with popular songs such as Army of Me, Jóga and Play Dead under her belt, announced dates across Europe as part of her Cornucopia tour.

The singer had appeared at the Electric Picnic festival in Laois in 2007 and 2013 but has not headlined her own show in Ireland since 1997, where she performed a legendary set at the Olympia Theatre.

Her first performance in Ireland was at Tipperary’s Féile Festival in 1994, alongside The Cranberries, Blur and The Prodigy, and her set was broadcast by MTV.

The 53 year old has been performing since she was a child and released her first album, aptly named Debut, when she was 28.

Ticketmaster made the announcement yesterday morning, and tickets go on sale this Friday, 9 August.

The tickets are expected to sell out quickly and fans have been advised to act quickly and not to play dead.
