Following her three sold out dates at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre in May, Imelda May has announced two more Irish dates for October.

The Dublin singer will play University Concert Hall Limerick on 24th October 2017 and INEC Killarney 28th October 2017.  Tickets go on sale this Friday 14 July at 9am from Ticketmaster and usual outlets.

Imelda will also play at the Wexford Spiegeltent Festival on October 23.  Tickets on Sale Friday July 14 on www.wexfordspiegeltent.com

Her album 'Life. Love. Flesh. Blood' entered the Irish charts at no 2 and spent ten weeks in the top ten.

She also recently dropped a live video for her album track, When It's My Time. 

“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.”

Produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett, ‘Life. Love. Flesh. Blood’ was recorded over seven days in Los Angeles and features musical contributions from Jeff Beck (on ‘Black Tears’), Jools Holland (on ‘When It’s My Time’) and an accomplished group of backing musicians including the core trio of guitarist Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello), drummer Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant and Alison Krauss) and bassist Zach Dawes (The Last Shadow Puppets, Mini Mansions).
