Imelda May announces more UK dates

She's added dates in Hull, Leicester and London.

Imelda May has confirmed three more UK shows due to phenomenal demand. The newly confirmed dates include a headline performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall, as well as dates at Hull’s City Hall and the De Montford Hall in Leicester.

May recently ended her UK and Eire tour with three sold-out shows at Dublin’s Bord Gais Energy Theatre, having also played a sold-out gig at the London Palladium.

She’s touring in support of her Life. Love. Flesh. Blood LP, set to release her new single Girl I Used To Be on the 30 June. The song is a memoire of her upbringing in the Liberties area of Dublin.

“I love those old story songs where you’re taken on a journey from beginning to end,” says Imelda of the track. “Songs you’re riveted with. Like when you’re in the car and you sit in the driveway, because you can’t turn the radio off, you have to listen to the end of the story. I thought, ‘I’d like to write one of them’. The lyrics are about my family, and my daughter, and myself and my life growing up in Dublin. We didn’t have much money but my parents are fabulous, creative and open-minded people. They gave me art and literature and encouraged me to do whatever was in my heart and I want to do that with my daughter.”

The album also includes recent single Should’ve Been You.

 

Here are those newly announced dates:

19 November – City Hall, Hull
20 November – De Montfort Hall, Leicester
22 November – Royal Albert Hall, London

Tickets for the new dates go on sale at 10:00 on Friday 9 June 2017 through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
