The global livestream event - O'Rourke's first live concert since 2019 - will take place on Wednesday, April 14th at 8pm BST with special guests.
In celebration of the release of his brand new, Paul Weller-produced album Arrivals, award-winning Irish singer-songwriter Declan O’Rourke has teamed up with Irish Arts Center New York and Moment House to bring you a global live-streamed event from Ireland’s National Abbey Theatre on April 14th.
Declan will be joined by a few very special guests, and will play a collection of songs from his new Arrivals album, which is due to arrive on Friday, April 9th.
The option to buy tickets to the Afterparty for exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and in-depth conversations with Declan and his guests will also be made available.
O'Rourke's special album launch show will be a gift for fans around the world, and a chance to hear unique live versions of the much-praised new songs on Arrivals, including the title track, 'The Harbour', 'Andy Sells Coke', 'In Painters' Light' and 'The Stars Over Kinvara'.
Recorded over six days at Black Barn studios in Surrey, with Paul Weller acting as producer, Arrivals sees Declan O’Rourke present the most emotionally raw and affecting album of his career.
Ever since his startling 2004 debut album, Since Kyabram, O’Rourke has been praised by songwriting greats John Prine, Glen Hansard and Paul Weller, among others. His work has since been covered by world-class artists such as Christy Moore, Camille O’Sullivan, Eddi Reader, and Josh Groban.
The Dublin artist's most recent album, 2017's Chronicles Of The Great Irish Famine, documented rare first-hand accounts from that devastating period of Irish history and garnered numerous awards. His writing is much admired and covered by fellow artists, most notably his hit 2004 single 'Galileo'.
