This year marks the return of Sinead O’Connor, with her 2019 Irish tour kicking off in Galway this October at the Roísín Dubh.
Having left the stage four years ago on a journey of self-renewal, after something of a re-birth following her spiritual conversion Sinead O’Connor returns to the stage and importantly, to the heartlands of Ireland this Autumn to begin what promises to be an exciting musical year ahead.
Upon missing out on the 2015 Galway International Arts Festival Sinead promised to come back to Galway to give the city something special in return; a unique and intimate performance. Sinead will begin the tour at the Roísín Dubh on October 17th, which culminates at Vicar St in Dublin on Oct 27th.
Discovered by the drummer of well-known Irish band In Tua Nua, she co-wrote their first hit. Shortly after being discovered by Ensign records her first album ‘The Lion and the Cobra’ released in late 1987 reached Platinum sales. Sinead had arrived. From the early new wave explosion of ‘Mandinka’ to the multi–platinum soul of Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares to You’ Sinead had left an indelible mark with her unique image and vocal style.
An artist beyond comparison – unique, uncompromising, a pioneer, a visionary are just some of the descriptions that might only touch the surface of Sinead O’Connor. Embodying a voice with beauty and innocence, a spirit part punk, part mystic with a combined fearlessness and gentle authenticity.
