Multi BRIT and MOBO Award winning boy band JLS today announce details of their return to music as they are set to embark on a mammoth comeback tour. Following a seven year hiatus Aston, Marvin, Oritsé and JB will take the ‘Beat Again’ tour to stages across the UK and Ireland reuniting with their legions of loyal fans for a fifteen date string of arena shows.
Famed for their impressive live draw having played London’s iconic O2 Arena a staggering sixteen times and selling over 1.4 million tickets in the UK alone, the tour kicks off at Dublin’s 3Arena on November 12th before heading to Belfast’s SSE Arena on November 13th.
Speaking of their highly anticipated return JLS said “We are so excited to be working together as a group again. We’ve always been like family, and now we feel that this is the right time for us to get back on stage and perform in front of our loyal fans. Even though it’s been 7 years, you can be sure that it’s going to be as high energy as ever”.
Since the band’s inception in 2007, JLS reimagined the modern boyband and made their mark on British music through their inimitable soulful, RnB, pop sound underpinned by highly stylised choreography. Collectively JLS have amassed five Number One singles with their instantly recognisable chart hits ‘Beat Again’, ‘Everybody In Love’, ‘The Club Is Alive’, ‘Love You More’ and ‘She Makes Me Wanna’.
Having carved out their own niche as a mid-late noughties mainstay, the band return to the spotlight following a record breaking career. They sold over six million records and four multi-platinum albums and their self titled debut went straight to Number One and has since sold over a million copies in the UK.
The band are two time BRIT winners, having won Best British Breakthrough and Best British Single with ‘Beat Again’, which was also named the fastest selling debut single of 2009. As well as their huge commercial success and consistently dominating the pop charts, the band made a massive impact on urban music culture with five MOBO Awards and three Urban Music Award wins highlighting the astronomic affect their music had in resonating in both pop and RnB music realms.
The tour is an opportunity for JLS fans across the country to come together to enjoy the hits which continuously soundtracked the charts for seven years running.

Today global music icon and 15-time GRAMMY Award winner Alicia Keys announced ALICIA – THE WORLD TOUR, her highly anticipated return to the stage. Keys will bring her repertoire of worldwide hits to iconic venues across North America and Europe, including a stop at the legendary Radio City Music Hall in Key’s hometown of New York City. The celebrated singer/songwriter/producer will visit major cities on both continents including London, Paris, Berlin, Atlanta, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and more on the tour produced by Live Nation.

Keys released the anthemic “Underdog,” the album’s new single, earlier this month to critical acclaim (“A be-jeweled slice of pop-soul with a gently euphoric feel” – Clash). The track became the most added song at US top 40 radio upon its release. Previously released singles include “Time Machine” and “Show Me Love,” which earned Keys a record-extending 11th number 1 on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs airplay chart.
In addition to new music, Keys will be bringing her classics - from “No One” to “If I Ain’t Got You” to “Girl on Fire” - to life in a special multi-media, artistic experience on the ALICIA – THE WORLD TOUR stage each night. A meditation on love and life, the show will be a true celebration, filled with the magnetic energy that only live music can create.

Following her recent triumphant sold out Irish tour, Sinéad O’Connor today announced that she will play 3 major gigs in Cork, Belfast and Dublin this summer, each with a different special guest – Damien Dempsey (Marquee Cork), Soak (Botanic Gardens Belfast) and Soda Blonde (Iveagh Gardens Dublin)
2019 has marked the return of Sinéad O’Connor and a new beginning that will see Sinéad bring out new music and tour the world once again as one of the true and original living greats of our time.
As Jack Kerouac states “Genius gives birth, talent delivers”. So where did Sinéad O’Connor begin?
1970s Ireland was the backdrop from which Sinéad O’Connor began her life. Born into tragic times with her own tragic story, one among many from those days, Sinéad would not be defined by what was at that time beyond her control. Her spirit would blossom and bloom manifesting her gift, her voice.
Discovered by the drummer of well-known Irish band In Tua Nua, she co-wrote their first hit. Shortly after being discovered by Ensign records her first album ‘The Lion and the Cobra’ released in late 1987 reached Platinum sales. Sinéad had arrived.
From the early new wave explosion of ‘Mandinka’ to the multi–platinum soul of Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares to You’ Sinéad had left an indelible mark with her unique image and vocal style.
Chart topping singles, hit albums, numerous awards an array of collaborations later and Sinéad’s spiritual journey would lead her through a turbulent, troubled and restless existence to find solace in Islam.
An artist beyond comparison - unique, uncompromising, a pioneer, a visionary are just some of the descriptions that might only touch the surface of Sinéad O’Connor. Embodying a voice with beauty and innocence, a spirit part punk, part mystic with a combined fearlessness and gentle authenticity. This voice as Sinéad’s unique expression would be echoed in the voices of other artists who she would inspire who came after.
Now Sinéad O’Connor is back performing live on stage where she belongs.
Live at the Marquee, CORK - Friday 5th June 2020
with special guest Damien Dempsey
Live at Botanic Gardens, BELFAST - Sunday 7th June 2020
with special guest Soak
Live at Iveagh Gardens, DUBLIN - Sunday 19th July 2020

Global Pop Superstar Dua Lipa has revealed the name of her eagerly awaited forthcoming album - ‘Future Nostalgia’ due for release in 2020. Dua also announces her massive ‘Future Nostalgia’ 2020 European Arena Tour - which starts in Madrid on April 26th and visits 22 cities across Europe and the UK ending in Dublin on June 19th. Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday 6th December at 9.00am local time, excluding Spain who will be on sale Thursday 5th December at 9.00am local time at www.LiveNation.co.uk
The lead track from the album “Don’t Start Now” is already a massive hit worldwide with over 170 million streams to date. Already an iTunes Global #1, the track is also Top 10 European Radio and climbing and Top 20 US Radio and climbing. Her show stopping Award performances of ‘Don’t Start Now’ at The EMA’s, The AMA’s and The ARIA’s have also dazzled and delighted millions of viewers and fans everywhere.
Speaking about ‘Future Nostalgia’ Dua explains “What I wanted to do with this album was to break out of my comfort zone and challenge myself to make music that felt like it could sit alongside some of my favourite classic pop songs, whilst still feeling fresh and uniquely mine. I was inspired by so many artists on the new record from Gwen Stefani to Madonna to Moloko to Blondie and Outkast, to name just a few.
Dua continues “Because of the time that I’d spent on the road touring with my band I wanted ‘Future Nostalgia’ to have a lot more of a live element, but mixed together with modern electronic production. My sound has naturally matured a bit as I’ve grown up but I wanted to keep the same pop sensibility as I had on the first record. I remember that I was on my way to a radio show in Las Vegas thinking about the direction for this new record and I realised that what I wanted to make was something that felt nostalgic but had something fresh and futuristic about it too.”
Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday 6th December at 9.00am local time, excluding Spain who will be on sale Thursday 5th December at 9.00am local time. Fans should purchase tickets from official outlets only and information will be found on the DUA LIPA website. VIP packages including ‘Dua’s House Party’ will be available.
