Presale available from 9am, Thursday 17 March

Australia’s favourite Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy is heading back to our shores in May 2022 with all his fan’s favourite tracks plus some new music in tow!

Originally planning to tour Down Under back in May 2020, his sold out run of shows had to be postponed when international borders closed.  But now we’re back in business, Kennedy will be visiting most of the original tour locations – Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney – plus upgrading some venues and adding a show in Melbourne to allow more fans to get in on the craic!

“Australia, it brings me so much joy to finally announce our rescheduled tour dates for this May! This has been a long time coming and I couldn’t be more excited to be coming back to this beautiful land. All previously purchased tickets remain valid – thank you so much to everyone who held onto theirs throughout the last two years. I can only promise you this will be incredibly special. Sadly, we were unable to reschedule the Perth shows due to current COVID restrictions, but we’ve added a new show in Melbourne on 19 May which will be going on sale this Friday at 9am local time. I can’t wait!” said Dermot Kennedy.
Dermot Kennedy has come a long way from busking on the streets of Dublin, with 23 million Spotify listeners and over 2.5 billion total streams, he has the best-selling debut album in his native Ireland of this millennium.

Without Fear, Dermot’s impassioned debut hit #1 on the UK chart and sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide, making him a platinum-selling artist in over 12 countries.  His singles, Outnumbered”, the Meduza collaboration Paradise,” and “Power Over Me” were all certified Gold, with Paradise” streaming over 500 million times.

Earlier in 2022 Dermot released a galvanizing version of his most recent single, “Better Days” featuring GRAMMY-nominated duo EARTHGANG. The dynamic collaboration saw Kennedy seamlessly marrying his love of hip-hop with his signature brand of authentic folk-laced pop, resulting in a powerful reimagining of the popular track.

With limited tickets available for these shows, fans will need to get in quick! Sign up now for access to the presale at 9am, Thursday 17 March.
