MCD Productions are delighted to announce tickets for Dermot Kennedy’s extra concert at St. Anne’s Park Dublin on 12 June 2021 sold out this morning following their 9AM on-sale despite some fans encountering Ticketmaster technical issues.

Dermot Kennedy has become one of the biggest and fastest selling live artists ever with over 112,000 tickets sold for his 2021 Irish dates.

Dermot Kennedy’s 2020 debut album ‘Without Fear’ has spent a total of 12 non-consecutive weeks at the Number One spot on the Irish Album Charts.

Just last week, Dermot Kennedy made history when he took the #1 slot in both the Official Irish Singles & Album chart with ‘Giants’ and ‘Without Fear’. He’s the first Irish act to hold the #1 position on both the Official Irish Singles and Albums Chart in the same week since The Script in 2010 with ‘For The First Time’ and ‘Science & Faith’.

In more record breaking news, last week Dermot Kennedy became the first Irish act to have more than #1 single in a calendar year since 2011, with ‘Paradise’ and ‘Giants’.

He also replaced himself at #1 in the Official Irish Singles Chart with ‘Giants’ overtaking ‘Paradise’. This makes him the fifth act ever to replace themselves at #1 – following Pharrell (2013), Justin Bieber (2015), Ed Sheeran (2017) and Ariana Grande (2019).

Since the release of his stunning 2017 EP ‘Doves and Ravens’, Dermot Kennedy’s globetrotting career has gone from strength to strength. He reached the #1 spot in the UK and Irish Official Album Charts with debut album ‘Without Fear’, achieved multi-platinum status with hit top 10 single ‘Outnumbered’ as well as the top 20 with singles ‘Power Over Me’ and recent hit ‘Giants’. His streaming numbers continue to rocket, with over 1.5 billion reached globally across all platforms.

From booking his own gigs in Dublin and London very early on, his live shows are now a worldwide phenomenon, selling out arenas and headlining major festivals across the globe. He has appeared on The Graham Norton and Jonathan Ross Shows in the UK as well as several major US shows including The Ellen Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

In 2020 Dermot was nominated in the ‘Best International Male’ category at the BRIT Awards and in July of the same year hosted ‘Some Summer Night’ at the Natural History Museum in London. – one of the biggest selling live streamed shows ever, with over 30,000 tickets purchased.

2021 sees Dermot set to perform his biggest sold out shows to date, including two nights at London’s Alexandra Palace, eight huge sold out concerts across Ireland and a night at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, USA.
