SJM Concerts presents Imelda May plus special guests

From £25.00

Irish superstar singer and songwriter Imelda May has announced three additional UK tour dates due to phenomenal public demand. 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. On release ‘Life. Love. Flesh. Blood’ topped the UK Americana chart and landed No.5 in the official UK album chart (her second UK top 5), ahead of artists including Texas and Drake with her strongest first sales week ever in the UK. One of the most critically acclaimed releases of 2017, the album spent over a month in the Top 20 and recently returned to the Top 10. Imelda has promoted the new album with performances on BBC1’s The One Show and The Graham Norton Show, and tomorrow she will be performing on ITV’s Tonight At The London Palladium. She also appeared on Chris Evans BBC Radio 2 show, where she performed a brilliant cover of U2’s ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I Was Looking For’, and recently joined The Guardian for a webchat. Produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett, ‘Life. Love. Flesh. Blood’ was recorded over seven days in Los Angeles and features musical contributions from Jeff Beck (on ‘Black Tears’), Jools Holland (on ‘When It’s My Time’) and an accomplished group of backing musicians including the core trio of guitarist Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello), drummer Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant and Alison Krauss) and bassist Zach Dawes (The Last Shadow Puppets, Mini Mansions). Imelda May has become one of Ireland’s most celebrated female artists. Discovered by Jools Holland, who asked Imelda to support him on tour, Imelda has gone on to perform alongside legendary artists including Lou Reed, Bono and Smokey Robinson and can count high profile artists including Bob Dylan (who recently revealed he is a fan of Imelda in a rare interview with Bill Flanagan) and Bono amongst her fans.
