Declan O'Rourke for Dublin

He's here at the end of the year...

Declan O' Rourke will play Dublin's Vicar St on December 12.

The Dublin songwriter impressed critics with the release of his 2011 album Mag Pai Zai. Last year, Declan performed at the Electric Burma Gala concert, celebrating the release of human rights activist Aung San Suu Kyi alongside a host of other big names including Bono, Bob Geldof and Damien Rice.

O' Rourke's most high profile admirers include Paul Weller (who dubbed 'Gallileo' as being "possibly the greatest song in the last 30 years), Ronnie Wood and Gary Lightbody.

Tickets for the Vicar St gig priced €25 - €28 are on sale now via Ticketmaster and usual outlets.

Had anyone else played this song, it wouldn’t have the same effect – there’s something about the acoustic simplicity next to Declan’s deep, masculine vocals that makes it shine. Genius.
