Dermot Kennedy Announces New North American Tour Dates!

Rising star Dermot Kennedy announces his return to North America with all new fall tour dates that will see the Irish artist bring back his rousing live performance to audiences across sixteen dates in the United States and one in Toronto, Canada. To celebrate the announcement, Dermot has released exclusive live video of him performing“Glory” — a single that has garnered over 14 Million streams on Spotify alone — in front of a sold out hometown crowd at The Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Ireland. Speaking to Billboard exclusively, Dermot had this to say about his new fall tour dates:

“I’m so excited to be returning to play my biggest shows yet; the energy has always been so beautiful and emotional when I’ve played there, and it’s not lost on me. I hope people can lose themselves, forget where they are, go completely within themselves and think about everyone and everything they care about at these shows. It’s really powerful to know you can take that sort of energy out of someone and make someone feel that way, and likewise I hope it’s a cathartic experience for people, I really do. The fact that my music does that for fans means so much to me.”

The news of Dermot’s North American tour dates comes at the heels of his freshly announced London and Dublin shows selling out in record time over the weekend (including additional datesthat were added due to high demand).
