Damien Dempsey NZ Tour from March 22nd - minimum four shows
DAMIEN DEMPSEY (IRELAND)
“IT’S ALL GOOD” – NEW ZEALAND TOUR
Experience the awesome force of Irish working class hero, Damien Dempsey, up-close and solo in his first ever New Zealand shows.
From the post-pub singsongs of his childhood home to the stadiums of the world, Damien Dempsey is one of the biggest acts out of Ireland today. Following in the footsteps of The Dubliners and The Pogues, and adding reggae and rock and Celtic rap, Dempsey imbues traditional Irish folk with hard-hitting social themes. Astonishingly gifted, his arrow-true voice is powerful and poignant, his live performances, passionate and profound.
With fans that include Brian Eno, Sinéad O’Connor, Bob Dylan and U2, (both of whom he has shared a bill with), and Morrissey, who invited him to support him on his US tour, Damien’s albums have topped the charts and gone Platinum, and he has been lauded by, among others, Rolling Stone, The Guardian, Billboard, MOJO and The Sunday Times.
Hot on the heels of the release of "It's All Good, The Best of Damien Dempsey", a celebration of his career to date, Damien Dempsey is touring to Australia and New Zealand.
For his first ever visit to New Zealand he presents four special solo gigs in intimate venues in Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Auckland.
