Live At The Iveagh Gardens 2024

SUGABABES – Friday 5th July 2024

Sugababes became one of the most successful British girlbands of the 21st century with six Number One singles, millions of global sales and multiple multi-platinum albums. Along the way they told one of the most spectacular stories of the modern pop era, but it all started with one song, three voices and a mysterious white label 7”. Fast forward two decades, the original line up of Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan and Siobhan Donaghy arrived back in full force becoming the talk of the summer festivals including having to shut down their field at Glastonbury due to demand. The next chapter for Sugababes is just getting started!

CHRISTY MOORE – Thursday 11th July 2024

One of the most compelling and inspirational musicians Ireland has ever seen, Christy has a universal fan base and still continues to entertain, cementing him as an Irish icon.  It is his deep urge to connect with the listener and to transmit the meaning of the songs he sings that has endeared him to audiences of all ages.  Christy has released 30 solo albums from ‘Paddy on the Road’ (1969) through to   his multi-platinum pair of live albums, ‘On the Road’ and ‘Magic Nights’ (2017 & 2019).

PILLOW QUEENS – Saturday 13th July 2024

Formed in 2016, Pillow Queens–made up of Pamela Connolly (lead vocals, guitar, bass), Sarah Corcoran (vocals, guitar, bass), Cathy McGuiness (vocals, lead guitar) and Rachel Lyons (vocals, drums)–burst onto the scene with their debut demo EP Calm Girls, leading to a string of UK and Irish dates and festival appearances. The release of their follow up EP State of the State prompted Hot Press to write the band is, “currently lauded by any critic worth their salt.” Their debut album In Waiting arrived in 2020 and received praise from The Guardian, who called them “2020’s most exciting indie rockers,”, they received an Irish Album of The Year nomination and made their first U.S. national television appearance remotely on the Late Late Show with James Corden. Taking the world by storm, the band went on to tour North America, UK and Europe, play at SXSW and open for Phoebe Bridgers in Glasgow. Upon the 2022 release of their sophomore album Leave The Light On, Pitchfork wrote, “Pillow Queens make the kind of noise that tends to flourish live, roared back by the faithful: burnished heartland euphoria, defiant lyricism bolstered by ragged harmonies, lashings of pride, and an unabashed love of crescendos”. The band once again received an Irish Album Of The Year nomination. Now, in late 2023, Pillow Queens are ready to return with more, as they only continue to reach new heights. “Suffer,” the anthemic new track by Pillow Queens is out everywhere now.

PASSENGER – Sunday 14th July 2024

A multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter, although still known for his busking, he made the journey from street corners to stadiums with ‘Let Her Go’, which reached number 1 in 19 countries, has now notched more than six billion streams globally and is the 2nd most Shammed song of all time. Yet ‘Let Her Go’ is just one song from a catalogue that extends across 13 albums in 13 years. The consistency of his output, and his authenticity both on and off stage, has won Passenger a global fanbase and he continues to tour the world headlining some of its most famous stages.

DAMIEN DEMPSEY – Friday 19th & Saturday 20th July 2024

Damien Dempsey is a passionate singer and songwriter – a rare gem of an artist. An ex-boxer with the soul of a poet. The beautifully shot documentary ‘Love Yourself Today’, released in 2021, follows a number of individuals who have been strongly influenced by Damien and unearths their stories of overcoming pain and finding solace in his music. The film successfully explains the Dublin singer-songwriter’s appeal by focusing on what his songs mean to fans. 2023 saw Dempsey’s 20-night residency at the Abbey Theatre, with his hugely successful debut show, Tales from the Holywell. The Conor Pearson-directed production was followed by a 14-date Irish tour and a support slot for The Saw Doctors at Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl. 2023 has also seen the first new music from Damien since 2018’s sublime Union album. Hope Calling is the first single from his as yet untitled 2024 new album and is released via Sony Ireland.

PALOMA FAITH – Sunday 21st July 2024

Paloma Faith’s ability to marry lavish, skyscraping pop fantasy with funny, plainspoken practicality is key to why she’s become one of the most successful British pop stars of her generation, with four platinum-certified albums (three of them double platinum) to her name and five Top 10 singles. Her comeback single, How You Leave a Man, is a zero-tolerance barn-burner about not sticking with the monotony and neglect of domesticity. Her ferocious sixth album, The Glorification of Sadness, is an epic, expansive, deeply personal record that turns over these feelings by taking a chronological journey through the cracking of an adult relationship, and with it a family. In recent years, Paloma has become a lifeline for many women who find solace in her unadulterated honesty as she shares her candid experiences of birth, babies, postnatal depression and the challenges of having your basic needs met as a woman and mother expected to sacrifice herself over everyone else. Paloma is in the final stages of writing a book about her experiences as well and her aims for the feminist movement.
