5,000 fans headed to Olivia Rodrigo's sold-out Dublin gig in Clontarf last night, and were treated to a rendition of a Sinead O'Connor/Prince classic.
Olivia Rodrigo delivered a standout set at Fairview Park last night in Dublin, which featured a cover of both Avril Lavigne's 'Complicated' and Irish songstress Sinéad O'Connor's take on Prince's hit 'Nothing Compares 2U'.
The 19-year-old Grammy winner is taking her SOUR tour across the UK and Europe, stopping in Clontarf to perform for 5,000 screaming fans.
Alongside performing hits from the record-breaking debut album like 'deja vu', 'brutal', favourite crime' and 'driver's licence', Rodrigo's rendition of 'Nothing Compares 2U' went down a treat for her Dublin fans.
