LIMERICK’S Lime Tree Theatre will play host to Gilbert O’Sullivan as part of his Irish concert tour later this year.

The singer-songwriter will bring his Just Gilbert tour to the Lime Tree on September 4, with tickets going on sale this Friday at 9am.

“We are delighted that world-class performer and music legend Gilbert O’Sullivan tours to the Lime Tree Theatre this September. This is another step forward for the Lime Tree and proves yet again that Limerick is most definitely on the national cultural map,” said venue boss Louise Donlon.

Gilbert’s latest, self-titled album was released last August and reached Top 20 in the UK and critical acclaim and to celebrate, he is returning for a series of rare solo concerts that will see him present new songs alongside hit classics such as Alone Again (Naturally), Nothing Rhymed and Clair in an intimate, acoustic setting.

As creative now as he has ever been across an outstanding career, the past few years have seen Gilbert O’Sullivan showcase many sides of his musical personality. Be it live shows with his band, full orchestral performances in the UK and Ireland or exploring Latin music on 2015’s Latin Ala G! album, the iconic songwriter has continued to look to the future while his famous back catalogue has, as ever, won him the respect and adoration of fellow musicians and audiences all over the world.

Tickets for Just Gilbert go on sale this Friday at 9am. See here for more.
