IMELDA MAY ADDITIONAL UK TOUR DATES ADDED DUE TO DEMAND INCLUDING ROYAL ALBERT HALL ON NOVEMBER 22

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.”

Last week 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 (“May’s wild side was worth the wait, though her mature reinvention was the evening’s real triumph” said Evening Standard in their 4* review).

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 playlisted 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.

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.”
