Dermot Kennedy announces massive gigs in Dublin, Cork and Belfast

DERMOT KENNEDY has just announced he'll be back in Ireland next summer, taking to venues in Dublin, Cork and Belfast for some sure-to-be awesome performances.

He's set to take the stage at Belsonic festival in Belfast on Thursday, June 25, 2020 before heading on to Dublin's Malahide Castle on Friday, June 26, in what will be his biggest Irish headline show yet, followed up with a performance at Independent Park in Cork the following day.

Tickets on sale November 8th 2019 at 9am.

The news comes ahead of his sold-out 3Arena gigs in Dublin this December.

Kennedy made the announcement via his Instagram page, posting a photo of the tour dates.

"It really does feel incredible to be announcing these shows back home in Ireland next summer!" He wrote.

"These nights are going to be so so special, I can promise you that.

"Thank you for making this possible!! Tickets go on sale Friday 8th November!! I cannot wait. Nothing like home."

The announcement is no surprise really, following the immediate success of his debut album, Without Fear.

Speaking about the record, Kennedy said "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.

"This is the only way I know how to put feelings across. Great people like Van Morrison, they did this too. So, you’ve got to do it," he added.
