After the enormous successes of both her sold out Academy show earlier this year and her sold out Olympia Theatre show last night, SIGRID has announced her biggest Irish headline show to date at 3Arena Dublin on Friday, November 22, 2019.

The ground-breaking Norwegian pop star this month also released the highly-anticipated new single Sucker Punch, following her critically acclaimed RAW EP and incredible jam-packed festival performances at Electric Picnic and Longitude this summer.

Highlighting the breadth of Sigrid’s maturing talent and aptitude for song writing, Sucker Punch cements the 22-year-old’s rise to pop prominence.


A post shared by Sigrid (@thisissigrid) on

From winning the BBC Sound of 2018, to moving Helen Mirren with her performance on the Graham Norton Show and storming the stage at her Shepherds Bush Empire headline, Sigrid’s unforgettably impassioned live performances have sparked mass appreciation and defiant, rebellious pop songs.

With her Spotify following tripling since the start of the year, and streaming numbers reaching almost 400M globally, Sigrid is undoubtedly set to continue her ascent.

Tickets from €39.90 inclusive go on sale Friday, November 9 at 9am from Ticketmaster so make sure to set your alarm.



Superstar P!NK has announced that she will play her first Irish show in six years next summer.

The Just Like A Pill singer will bring her Beautiful Trauma World Tour to Dublin's RDS Arena on June 18th 2019.

Tickets for the show, which will surely be as awe-worthy as her previous concerts on Irish soil – this is to be her first live show here since 2013 – will go on sale from Ticketmaster from next week; on October 23 at 9am, priced from €69.50, including booking fee.

She will be joined by special guests Vance Joy, KidCutUp and Bang Bang Romeo on the night. 

P!NK’s Beautiful Trauma World Tour, kicked off in Phoenix, USA in March this year, and has already seen the singer thrill crowds across America. Her concerts showcase the best of P!NK as a supreme vocalist (she sounds better live than on CD) and physical performer; she is renowned for her incredible acrobatics throughout each show.   

Thank you Sydney, the last two nights have been magical. The last 3 or so months have been both amazing & challenging for my family and I, but I remain forever grateful for the time we’ve had together in your beautiful country & for the years of friendship and memories. 42 shows!!

She also recently wrapped her Australia and New Zealand leg of the tour, which with its 42 shows wasn't without its tougher moments; the entertainer had to cancel and then reschedule some shows due to trying to maintain her health and take care of her family on the road, but thankfully, she seems to be in the whole of her health as she gets ready to embark on her European tour.  



The Coronas’ December shows at the Olympia theatre are one of the most popular music events of the year.

Their legendary gigs have almost become part of the Christmas calendar now.

This year, the San Diego Song singers will be playing the Olympia on December 3 and 4.

Whether you were at their very first show there ten years ago or ‘the one where the power cut’ in 2010, you’ll know how magical these up close and personal shows are.

This year, The Coronas have something special planned to mark a decade of Olympia shows.

As always, tickets for the two shows are expected to fly out this Friday.

Danny O’Reilly says “We’re so excited to be coming back this year to the Olympia. It’s hard to believe we’ve been playing this venue for 10 years.”


A post shared by The Coronas (@thecoronasofficial) on

He continued: “We’re heading off on tour next week all around America, Canada and then Australia but knowing that we’re coming home at Christmas with these gigs to look forward to is an amazing feeling.”
“We’re gonna plan something special for the gigs to thank our fans for continuing to come back and spend these deadly nights with us,” the frontman teased.

General tickets from €33.50 including booking fee and restoration levy go on general sale this Friday at 9am

The Someone New singer is set to announce further Ireland, UK and European tour dates on September 17.

Friday, September 7 – The Academy, Dublin

Music lovers, rejoice! Vance Joy has just announced a second Dublin date at The Olympia Theatre on November 16.

Tickets go on sale at 10 am on Wednesday, July 4.

Tickets cost a mere €26 but they’ll be swiped up so don’t forget to set your alarm for Wednesday.

Vance Joy won the hearts of many with the ukulele-led charm of instant classic ‘Riptide’, He consolidated on that first impression with further anthems ‘Mess is Mine’, ‘Georgia’, ‘Fire and the Flood’ and ‘Straight Into Your Arms’.

Those hits all found a home on 2014's debut Dream Your Life Away – the record hitting No.1 in Australia, No.2 in Canada and Top 20 in the UK and US.

It’s fair to say that the Melbourne turned global star is sounding better than ever on Nation of Two. Joy’s compelling vocals dance around thoughtful lyrics and luscious melodies, and while he may have the special skill of making it all sound effortless, every word and metaphor is there for a reason.

Now, with a swag of exquisite new material added to his already impressive repertoire, comes time to start the crazy cycle all over again, this time with the bonus of simultaneous global releases and a ready-made audience.

“It's a luxury to have made one album and it’s nice to know people are waiting to hear some new songs,” the Riptide singer gushed.

Tickets are available from a www.ticketmaster.ie  on July 4.


We all know the amazing feeling that live music gives us, you can almost feel it in your soul (if the gig is good).

Well, apparently this isn't all in our head, because attending concerts can actually prolong your life. 

According to a new study by O2, alongside Goldsmith University's Associate Lecturer Patrick Fagan, regularly attending live concerts can help expand your lifespan.

We're down. 

The study says that 20 minutes at a live performance "can lead to a 21 percent increase in that feeling of well-being." 

The research continued, claiming that attending concerts could be "directly linked to high levels of well-being with a lifespan increase of nine years."

So yes, basically attending gigs could really make you live longer.

How's that for an excuse to buy that ticket you've been putting off?

"Our research showcases the profound impact gigs have on feelings of health, happiness and well-being – with fortnightly or regular attendance being the key," Goldsmith University's Associate Lecturer Patrick Fagan said.

How did they get these results, I hear you ask? 

Well, basically the test subjects underwent "psychometric testing and heart rate tests" as they engaged in various activities that were positive for their health – like walking and exercising etc.  

The results simply revealed that people who attended concerts had an increase of 25 percent in feelings of "self worth and closeness to others" and a 75 percent increase in "mental stimulation".

Can't argue with science now, can you? 


Genuinely, there is nothing better than a good gig.

A few drinks, all your mates, and brilliant live music – pure heaven in our book. 

Anyway, with that in mind, we've decided to keep you lovely ladies in the know, with a new gig guide each week. 

Without further adieu, here are the concerts on across the country this week (and weekend, naturally!)

Paul Weller, The Olympia, Tuesday 13th February. 

2017, marks the 40th anniversary of Paul Weller’s first album, “In The City”, which he released with The Jam in May 1977. For most artists such a landmark would be greeted with extensive retrospective celebrations: lavish reissues and all that jazz. But Paul Weller is not like most artists, instead releasing a new studio album, because releasing new albums is what Paul Weller does. Always moving forwards, almost clinically averse to nostalgia or checking his progress in the rear-view mirror.

And so, continuing his never-ending creative peak, Paul Weller releases his eagerly awaited 13th studio album “A Kind Revolution”, out now on Parlophone Records.

There are still a few tickets left for this gig, but act fast.

Jake Bugg, Whelans, Thursday 15th February.

Following the release of Jake Bugg stunning new album ‘Hearts That Strain’, he announced a acoustic show at Whelans on Thursday, 15th February.  Tickets are actually sold out, HOWEVER, there are still some available on seat wave if you fancy it!

Wild Beasts, The Olympia, Thursday 15th February.  

'Wild Beasts are coming to an end. Our hearts and minds have been devoted to the band since we were teenagers. We've created something quite of our own and built a body of work which we stand by as heartfelt and true. The four of us have decided for our own reasons and in our own ways that it is now time to leave this orbit,' reads a statement from the band, regarding their split. 

HOWEVER, in a final goodbye, the band are doing a handful of farewell shows, one of which is in Dublin this week. Do not miss this one!

Smokie, Vicar Street, Sunday 18th February.  

Serious throwback here, but you'd be surprised how many Smokie songs you actually know (and, you'll impress you ma if you attend no doubt!)

Singing 'Alice, Alice, who the F**CK is ALICE' at the top of your lungs in Vicar Street? Sure what else would you be doing of a Sunday.
