Imelda May

IMELDA May is releasing her first new music in four years with her album ‘11 Past The Hour’. The Daily Mail reviewed the record as – “the whole album is crying out to be performed live.”
And that’s exactly what Imelda will do in May 2022, coming to University Concert Hall on Friday May 6. Tickets at www.uch.ie.
The tour will see her perform songs from her new album and the most celebrated tracks from her huge repertoire ready to get any party started.
Imelda’s record brims with sensuality, emotional intelligence, spirituality and intuition featuring collaborations with Ronnie Wood, Noel Gallagher, Miles Kane and Niall McNamee. feminist Thinkers and activists Gina Martin and Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu also feature. It plays as a blast of rock ‘n’ roll with purpose.
Her last headline tour in 2017 received rave reviews such as Metro’s “It was like the Irish stars had aligned for a perfect moment creating rock and roll gold” and The Evening Standard’s “May’s wild side was worth the wait, though her mature reinvention was the evening’s real triumph”.
Discovered by Jools Holland, who asked Imelda to go on tour with him, Imelda has gone on to perform duets with artists including U2, Lou Reed, Sinead O’Connor, Robert Plant, Van Morrison, Jack Savoretti and Elvis Costello and has featured on recent albums and live tours with Jeff Beck, Jeff Goldblum and Ronnie Wood.
Last summer, Imelda released her debut poetry EP ‘Slip of the Tongue’ to widespread critical acclaim and received global recognition for her poem ‘You Don’t Get To Be Racist and Irish’ used for the ReThink Ireland campaign.
