With his London date already sold out, the rising TikTok-driven star from West Cork, Cian Ducrot, is now set to play his first major tour - with gigs in Dublin, Limerick and Cork featuring strongly.
Irish singer-songwriter and producer Cian Ducrot has announced his first headline tour across the UK and Ireland. The author of ‘All For You’ will play headline shows in Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, Birmingham, Dublin, Limerick and Cork, in addition to his previously announced Lafayette, London show on September 20th – which sold out in less than twenty four hours.
Tickets are available from today, Friday, July 1st.
Cian Ducrot’s stellar latest single ‘All For You’ was his first ever entry in the UK's Official Singles Chart. Released in April via Polydor, Cian’s self-penned piano ballad exploded online with more than 65 million global views on TikTok, while it also amassed over 20 million plays across streaming services. Cian – who did a star turn on the final night of Hot Press' Y&E Series – welcomed more than 90k new followers on TikTok, bringing his following on the platform to a 900k-strong cohort.
'All For You' was featured on The Tonight Show, where Jimmy Fallon and pop-rock star Joe Jonas performed their own improvised lyrics in a funny, open verse challenge watched by over a million viewers. Cian has also co-written and produced American Idol contestant Lauren Spencer-Smith’s new single ‘Flowers’, which peaked at #17 in the UK's Official Singles Chart.
Having released his debut EP ‘Make Believe’ in December 2021, Cian's captivatingly honest songs have received critical acclaim and support from Jack Saunders and Mollie King on BBC Radio 1, and an inclusion on Amazon Music’s ‘Artists To Watch 2022’ selection and Hot Press' 'Hot for 22' list.
Tipped by Jack Saunders as one of three artists to watch on Notion and as ‘a phenomenal songwriter’ on BBC Radio 1, Cian Ducrot has also seen support from the likes of CLASH ('something to treasure’), 1883, The Independent, Official Charts, Pop Justice and MTV UK, and was labelled as 'on the brink of great things’ by the Daily Star.
With the release of his debut EP, a first UK headline show and more than 57 million streams globally, 2021 was a truly remarkable year for the rising Irish artist. Now, with a headline tour announced, and slots at Barn On The Farm this weekend and the earlier Forbidden Fruit festivals, and new music on the way, the excitement continues to build around Cian’s upcoming projects.
