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.  


Most of us grew up knowing that when it came to Irish icons, Gay Byrne wasn't far off it. 

Whether it was hearing his radio show on days off school, waiting on the Tayto and Club Orange you got once The Late Late kicked off on a Friday night or giving The Meaning of Life a cursory glance as an adult, Uncle Gaybo has been with us every step of the way.

So, it's probably no surprise that when Tallaght-born comedian, Al Porter, was offered some sage advice from the man himself, he grabbed it with both hands.

Speaking to RSVP, Al revealed that Gay had suggested he ditch the booze during performances after seeing the young comedian struggle to keep up after downing pints.

"I had a beer on stage with me at the gig and I was drinking the beer and the audience started to cheer, 'down it, 'down it' and I did. I had told a guy on the crew when I finished  my pint to put another one at the side of the stage," Al recalled.

"He put one out and the audience thought it was a joke so they started to say 'down it, down it'. So, for the craic, I downed that one too and for the next couple of jokes, I had to suppress getting sick on stage," he admitted.

Explaining that the situation hadn't escaped Gay, Al said: "Nobody really noticed, but Gay did. He told me he loved the show, but then said, 'Don't drink on stage, it's not professional and I don't like it. You are in control, not the audience.'"

And, according to Al, he's been on the water ever since.

Mr. Byrne? You job here is done.
