Declan O’Rourke – Arrivals
Dublin songwriting colossus Declan O’Rourke (top) celebrates the release of his 7th album Arrivals with a live streamed gig from the Abbey Theatre this evening at 8pm.
Declan will be playing songs from the new record, which was produced by Paul Weller. The video for the poignant title track was directed by Natasha Waugh and features stark images of an empty Dublin airport in lockdown as well as Declan playing the piano in a deserted train station.
This will go down as one of the enduring cultural responses to the present crisis.
Tickets for the show tonight can be purchased here.
Nick says: Arrivals is a new departure for Declan.
