MUSIC: Gerry Cinnamon to headline his biggest Irish shows to date

Gerry Cinnamon is preparing for his biggest Irish headline shows later this summer.

AFTER the incredible success of his sold-out shows at the Olympia Theatre and 3Arena Dublin last year, alongside a heaving set at the Electric Picnic mainstage, Gerry Cinnamon will play his biggest Irish headline shows yet, at Irish Independent Park, Cork and Malahide Castle later this summer.

The continuing ascent of Gerry Cinnamon is one of contemporary music’s most outstanding stories.

Rising from a self-released debut album, Gerry has become a stadium and arena-filling headliner. And as an artist, whose revealing and honest songs naturally connect with a huge and devoted audience, he’s achieved it all entirely independently.

 Having completed a sold-out UK and Ireland arena tour, Gerry finished last year with two nights at the SSE Hydro before he returns to Glasgow in the summer to play a stadium show at Hampden Park, Scotland’s national football stadium, where all 50,000 tickets sold-out the same day they went on sale.

He is now preparing for a major arena and outdoor tour for summer 2020, which includes a London date at the historic Alexandra Palace, a headline set at the Belsonic festival in Belfast and headline shows at Irish Independent Park, Cork and Malahide Castle, Dublin.

 Fans who pre-order copies of Gerry’s eagerly anticipated second album ‘The Bonny’ (coming next April) will receive access to a pre-sale for tour tickets.

 Recent months have seen Gerry preview the release of ‘The Bonny’ album with some new material in the shape of ‘Canter’, ‘Sun Queen’ and ‘Dark Days’.

‘The Bonny’ follows his Top 20 debut album ‘Erratic Cinematic’, which has been certified Gold in recognition of more than 120,000 sales. He’s already exceeded 127 million plays at Spotify.

 News of Gerry’s latest shows add to a phenomenal year.

His Glastonbury set saw the John Peel Stage rammed to capacity, with fans spread out far beyond the confines of the tent.

And back home in Glasgow, he co-headlined the TRNSMT Festival alongside Stormzy. Such unforgettable scenes resulted in him winning Best Live Act at the AIM Independent Music Awards, an accolade that was decided by a public vote.

Gerard Crosbie (as he was born) was raised in ‘The Valley’, a residential area of the Castlemilk district of Glasgow.

He has stated that as a child he listened to his mother’s music cassettes including albums by The Rolling Stones, Simon & Garfunkel and The Beatles.

Having experienced problems in the local area and in school as a young teenager, he spent some time living in London with the father of a friend; finding himself with little to do “apart from watch cricket or play guitar”.
