Denise Chaila announces summer gig at King John's Castle

Limerick rapper Denise Chaila releases brand-new EP

DENISE Chaila has announced a massive summer concert at King John's Castle in Limerick city. 

Hot off her support act for Ed Sheeran last week, the rapper will play a headline show at the castle on Saturday, August 20. 

Presented by Seoda Shows and Dolans, this will be Denise's largest headline show to date. 

Mick Dolan said: "Denise Chaila’s rise to stardom has been nothing short of meteoric. We first hosted Denise as a spoken word artist with Rusangano Family and since then she has performed and rehearsed in our venue many times.

"This is a major opportunity for Denise’s fans old and new to see her perform her largest headline show to date."

John Hennessy of Seoda Shows said: "We are excited to be able to host such a high profile show with Denise Chaila. Seoda and Dolans have worked closely with Denise and Narolane over the last several years. She is truly an authentic and unique artist.

"We were lucky to run a number of very small socially distanced shows during COVID-19 with Denise. This show in the hallowed grounds of King John’s Castle will be a major highlight in Limerick’s musical history. All hail King Chaila!"

The Zambian born rapper moved to Dublin with her family when she was three before relocating to Limerick. 

The award-winning singer songwriter has been part of the Limerick music scene since 2012. 

In 2019, she released her first EP Dual Citizenship and her debut album, Go Bravely, released in October 2020, won an RTE Choice Music Award.

Earlier this year, Denise took home a prestigious 2022 Music Moves Europe Award.

This annual prize for popular and contemporary music is co-funded by the European Union and celebrates emerging artists who represent the European sound of today and tomorrow.

Tickets for Denise's show go on sale Friday, May 13 at 9am from and Ticketmaster.
