Irish superstar singer and songwriter Imelda May has announced three additional UK tour dates due to phenomenal public demand. The new November dates include a headline show at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall, where Imelda supported The Who in April, in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
“I’m so delighted to perform at The Royal Albert Hall again,” says Imelda. “It really is a very special place. You can feel the history in the walls and the excitement in the air. The beauty of it takes my breath away. And I’ve got the best view in the house! I hope to see you there.”
Imelda ended her UK & Eire tour with three sold-out shows at Dublin’s Bord Gais Energy Theatre, which followed a triumphant sold-out gig at London Palladium.
Imelda’s new single, ‘Girl I Used To Be’, is released 30th June on Decca Records. The track is taken from her Top 5 new album ‘Life. Love. Flesh. Blood’ and follows the BBC Radio 2 play-listed previous singles ‘Call Me’, ‘Black Tears’ and ‘Should’ve Been You’. A hauntingly beautiful acoustic ballad, ‘Girl I Used To Be’ (listen on Spotify) is a memoir of Imelda’s life growing up in the Liberties area of Dublin, and the lessons learned she will pass on to her daughter.
Imelda heads to the US and Canada later this month, including three dates as support for Elvis Costello – full dates below. For more information please visit her website.
