English alternative rock musician will play Vicar Street later this year
Following on from the sell-out success of his Whelan’s headline show, Yungblud has announced his return to Dublin.
Last summer, Yungblud wowed audiences at festivals across the world including Rock Am Ring in Germany, Splendour in the Grass in Australia, Lollapalooza in Chicago, Pukkelpop in Belgium, alongside touring the US on the last ever Vans Warped Tour.
Yungblud partly credits his razor-sharp lyricism to his lifelong love of literary-minded songwriters like Bruce Springsteen and Chris Difford from Squeeze. A multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, bass, piano, and drums, he first picked up a guitar at age two and began writing his own songs at age 10.
At an early age, Yungblud moved to London to kick-start his career and refine his musical vision, a process aided by his rediscovery of firebrand artists like The Clash, Arctic Monkeys, and N.W.A.
He made his debut with ‘I Love You, Will You Marry Me’, a song whose gritty storytelling recounts the real-life tale of a tragic romance at a public housing project in South Yorkshire.
Yungblud will play Vicar Street on November 27. Tickets cost €20 inclusive of booking fee and go on sale Thursday March 7 at 9am.
