Trivium

Veteran Florida heavies, Trivium kick off a strong year for Irish metalheads – what with Iron Maiden, the long-delayed Ozzy Osbourne/Judas Priest package and Motley Crue’s first ever Ireland appearance (in conjunction with Def Leppard’s latest appearance) also due – in support of their 2021 album ‘In the Court of the Dragon’.

Heilung

In a break from its usual fare – Shane Richie in Jersey Boys, or Hollyoaks: The Musical, say – the Bord Gáis becomes Dublin’s alternative venue par excellence this month by welcoming unique experimental German-Nordic folk ensemble Heilung (‘Healing’ in German). New album ‘Drif’ came out last year.

Lewis Capaldi

Everyone’s favourite angst-ridden, self-deprecating Scottish bard returns to these shores to promote new album ‘Broken by Desire to be Heavenly Sent’. But, judging by ticket sales for his world tour – which runs up to the end of July – you may have to go to New Zealand to get a glimpse of the pudgy popster.
