Róisín O will play her new Irish tour in April and May 2022 and tickets are on sale now. We asked her the BIG questions . . .

This will be Róisín’s first solo tour in four years and will be on the back of a run of gigs supporting The Coronas from October through to December this year as they tour across Ireland.

Her debut was the 2012 album The Secret Life of Blue, a passion project with the band Thanks Brother. She released an EP release in 2019 and played shows at 3Arena, Electric Picnic and more.

However, it was the 2020 lockdown that brought her back to her roots, as she used the timeout from the constant touring and recording to reset. She received a positive response for her cover of Selena Gomez’s Lose You to Love me in June, which amassed over a million streams on Spotify, and sang on the No. 1 cover of The Cranberries’ Dreams with Irish Women in Harmony.

Róisín also recently performed Irish ballad Grace with fellow musician and singer Aoife Scott ahead of Michael Conlon’s victorious WBA interim featherweight world title fight in Belfast.

I think my first gig might have been Destiny’s Child in The Point Depot, I was about 12 and it blew my mind. First single I ever bought was Life by Des’ree. Not my finest moment but it had a mind-blowing B-side called Kissing You from the Romeo & Juliet soundtrack.

A Case of You by Joni Mitchell, or maybe Bohemian Rhapsody.
