After a sold out run of dates last year, Live Nation is excited to announce that Irish singer and songwriter Dermot Kennedy is set to head to New Zealand for his debut shows this year. With latest album Sonder in tow, Dermot’s The Sonder Tour will grace stages in Auckland and Wellington with a very special show as part of the On A Good Day series.
From busking on the streets of Dublin to selling out stadiums around the world, Dermot has won over fan after fan with his passionate and burning lyrics that speak truth and honesty, delivering compelling music from the heart that connects with people across the globe. He exudes authenticity, both onstage and in his songs.
Dermot spent three years working on his latest release Sonder, writing the 13 songs on the album while he was riding the success his debut album Without Fear, which has since sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide. Sonder has songs full of brilliant one-liners, lyrics that make you think, vocals that soar and stories of love and life that hit you deep in the gut.
A platinum-selling artist in over 12 countries with his songs “Outnumbered,” “Power Over Me,” “Paradise” with Meduza and “Power” with Kevin Gates achieving platinum status in the U.K. and gold status in the U.S., Dermot’s track “Paradise” has been streamed over half a billion times while “Giants” is another platinum effort for Dermot in the U.K. He has, to date, amassed nearly 4 billion streams and “Without Fear” holds the title of Ireland’s best-selling debut album of the millennium.
Adding to the list of his achievements, Dermot was nominated for International Male Solo Artist at the 2020 Brit Awards. Grammy Award-winning artist Dua Lipa also selected him to perform at her livestream concert, Truly Inspired Presents: Dua Lipa Live! Even Taylor Swift calls herself a fan!
