IDLES announced for Royal Hospital Kilmainham

Words: Dylan Murphy

The band have cancelled their sold out January shows in Vicar St. due to ongoing uncertainty, but have quickly announced a replacement show later in 2022.

Predictably, a lot of January gigs are getting cancelled right now in Ireland. IDLES are the latest group to go back to the drawing board, however, they’ve cancelled out the bad news with a welcome announcement.

They’ll play their biggest Irish show to date when they headline the Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin on May 29, 2022. A line-up of special guests for the show will be announced in the coming weeks.

IDLES released their acclaimed fourth studio album Crawler last month on Partisan. The 14-track follow-up to last year’s Ultra Mono was recorded at Real World Studios in Bath during the pandemic. It was co-produced by Kenny Beats and IDLES guitarist Mark Bowen. 

Tickets for the show go on sale Wednesday December 15 at 10.00 from ticketmaster.ie.
