Paul Young (Opera House, Cork, February 27; University Concert Hall, Limerick, February 28; Olympia Theatre, Dublin, February 29)

Part celebration of 40 years of classic debut No Parlez and of new album Behind the Lens, 80s legend Young gives Irish fans a treat with this mini-nationwide tour.

Róisín Murphy (Olympia Theatre, Dublin, February 3/4)

Back in Dublin again – following sold out shows at the Olympia and Trinity College’s Summer Series last year – this time the former Moloko singer is fully promoting latest album Hit Parade; which has variously been described by reviewers as “essential” and “the best of her career”.

Slayyyter (Olympia Theatre, Dublin, February 11)

The latest so-hip-it-hurts US diva popster hits Irish shores next month, in support of her current album, Starfucker. Slayer fans expecting a lazily-titled tribute band will be disappointed.

Depeche Mode (3Arena, Dublin, February 3)

Well sold out, but this one can’t go without a mention, and there’s always the resale market. Messrs Gahan and Gore continue their planet spanning Memento Mori World Tour, which has already visited Ireland – with last year’s momentous Malahide Castle gig – but is even better indoors.

David Gray (Whelan’s, Dublin, February 1-4)

Ireland’s favourite overseas troubadour returns yet again to Ireland. He’s celebrated classic album White Ladder before, but now David Gray gives the long overdue anniversary gig treatment to classic debut album A Century Ends, over this 4-night stand.
