SINÉAD FOR ISLE OF MAN!

Triskel Promotions return to the live music scene with a fantastic coup in securing SINÉAD O’ CONNOR to play an all-seated concert in the Royal Hall,Villa Marina on Wednesday 18th December 2019.

Half of all tickets have been sold in the first 24hrs of being on sale….

Tickets for the show will be on sale from today 29th October 2019 at Midday at www.villagaiety.com or 01624 600555

Having left the stage four years ago on a journey of self-renewal, Sinéad returns to the stage; importantly, to the international stage, and sold out her entire run of Irish dates in under an hour.

The Irish Times herald her return as “A once-in-a-generation singer in the form of her life”

She has announced an extensive US tour which sells out as quickly as shows are added. To date there is just one other show in the UK in London, which makes the Isle of Man concert particularly exclusive.

She returns defiant,passionate and enjoying the buzz of live performance.

A voice that defied and defined a generation.

Expect an emotionally charged intimate concert from one of Ireland’s true musical legends.

Tickets from £42 including booking fee at www.villagaiety.com or Box Office 01624 600555

Local support for the evening will be announced shortly.

Her return comes on the back of some small festival slots in Ireland and what is now considered a legendary performance on The Late Late Show in early September, which proved to the many many critics, she returns with a passion to perform and take us on her musical journey of life.

Two SOLD OUT shows at Dublin’s historic Vicar St this weekend gone simply overwhelmed with love and The Irish Times called it :”A once-in-a-generation singer in the form of her life”

As Jack Kerouac states “Genius gives birth, talent delivers”. 

So where did Sinead O’Connor begin?

1970s Ireland was the backdrop from which Sinead O’Connor began her life. Born into tragic times with her own tragic story, one among many from those days, Sinead would not be defined by what was at that time beyond her control. Her spirit would blossom and bloom manifesting her gift, her voice. 

Discovered by the drummer of well-known Irish band In Tua Nua, she co-wrote their first hit. Shortly after being discovered by Ensign records her first album ‘The Lion and the Cobra’ released in late 1987 reached Platinum sales. Sinead had arrived.

From the early new wave explosion of ‘Mandinka’ to the multi–platinum soul of Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares to You’ Sinead had left an indelible mark with her unique image and vocal style.

An artist beyond comparison – unique, uncompromising, a pioneer, a visionary are just some of the descriptions that might only touch the surface of Sinead O’Connor. Embodying a voice with beauty and innocence, a spirit part punk, part mystic with a combined fearlessness and gentle authenticity. This voice as Sinead’s unique expression would be echoed in the voices of other artists who she would inspire who came after.

Chart topping singles, hit albums, numerous awards an array of collaborations later and Sinead’s spiritual journey would lead her through a turbulent, troubled and restless existence to find solace in Islam.

This year marks the return of Sinead O’Connor and a new beginning that will see Sinead bring out new music and tour the world once again as one of the true and original living greats of our time. 

BUSHYS MOVING ON UP!

Finally, after what has been a frenetic period of site reconnaissance and lengthy discussions, having carefully considered several potential sites around the capital,Bushy’s have finally secured a move to the 

VILLA MARINA GARDENS. The opportunity to move into the Villa gardens is a golden one for the local brewing company who have been providing outside entertainment during the TT festival for the last 20 years.

Martin Brunnschweiler and his team have exciting plans for TT 2018 with everything being bigger and better for locals and visitors alike. Bushy’s now have the opportunity to expand their capacity open air and under cover with the help of A3 Marquees who have supplied and aided Bushy’s from day one. Also continuing their support is Justin McMullin’s ELS team who will be supplying a bigger stage and have recently invested in the very latest specialist concert equipment exclusive to the Island. Lenny Conroy, of Triskel Promotions who is also on board having provided the stage entertainment for the last 17 years, remarked that “ the blank canvas offers limitless opportunities with live entertainment. My remit is simple,fill it ! ”. The usual lengthy list of local contractors and suppliers with their expertise will be called upon yet again to ensure only the best for Bushys.

Rob Callister MHK, Member of the Department of Economic Development with responsibility for Motorsport and the Villa Gaiety complex commented:

‘We have been working with Bushy’s regarding their plans to hire the Villa Marina Gardens for TT 2018 which they have now secured. As the Island’s premier entertainment venue, the Villa Gaiety already plays a central role in providing entertainment during the TT festival. The Bushy’s proposal is an exciting one and we are looking forward to seeing how the project takes shape over coming months.

‘The Villa Gaiety is an ideal venue for large scale events and hosts a number of high profile events in the theatre, function rooms and outside spaces. The Villa Gaiety is already well into its programming for 2018, including during the TT festival period, and will be looking to build on recent achievements in securing top live entertainment, to provide a wide range of music, comedy and live events for residents and visitors to enjoy. The Villa Gaiety is always open for private hire with established rate cards available to potential hirers.’
