Richard Hawley Announces Dublin Date at Olympia
Richard Hawley has announced a date at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on September 30, 2019.
This year is set to be a landmark one for the singer-songwriter, marking his 20th anniversary as a solo artist. Not only is he due to release his ninth studio album, Further on May 31, but he will also see a musical based on a collection of his songs open in his hometown of Sheffield.
In the two decades that have elapsed since Hawley jettisoned band life, first with The Longpigs and then as Pulp’s guitarist, the 52-year-old songwriter has forged one of the most singular and diverse careers in modern music. As well as releasing a string of solo albums that have managed the rare feat of being both critically acclaimed and commercially successful, Hawley has worked with a host of impressive collaborators. These include the Arctic Monkeys, Manic Street Preachers, Elbow, Paul Weller and Shirley Bassey.
Tickets for his Olympia show cost from €39.50 including booking and restoration fees. They go on sale this Friday, May 17 at 9am.
