David Keenan announces Irish, European and UK Tour Announced For Autumn/Winter 2021, including a headline date at 3Olympia Theatre Dublin on the 12 of December 2021.

Irish singer-storyteller David Keenan brings us the fourth taste of his forthcoming second album “WHAT THEN?” which will be released on 15th October. It’s the latest chapter in the story of this young free-spirit from Dundalk in County Louth. Drawing equally on memories of his teenage adventures in Liverpool, in search of his musical hero, the quixotic Lee Mavers’ of The La’s, and an extended “lost weekend” which lasted five weeks in a pre-COVID Paris last year, David Keenan’s stories explore worlds both fantastical and factual.

David Keenan announces his return to 3Olympia Theatre, on the 12th of December 2021. The news follows this morning’s release of his new single Peter O’Toole’s Drinking Stories. It is taken from his forthcoming second album, which will be released later this year to coincide with a headline tour across Ireland, Europe and the UK from October 2021.

Dundalk-native David Keenan released his debut album – “A Beginner’s Guide To Bravery” – in January 2020. The album charted at number one on the official Irish Independent Album Charts, number six in the official National Album Charts and was one of the best-selling vinyl album releases by an Irish artist in 2020. The album release coincided with an unforgettable sold-out concert at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin. The concert film/documentary based on the gig – “Alchemy & Prose” – debuted at the prestigious London Doc’N’Roll Festival in November of last year, and was accompanied by a limited-edition live album, released for Record Store Day 2020.

Like many others, David’s touring plans for the year were halted by the pandemic. He released three lo-fi ‘Isolation Tapes’ on Bandcamp during lockdown. Peter O Toole’s Drinking Stories is the first tale in the next chapter from this exciting singer-storyteller, growing in confidence, stretching boundaries and embracing new sounds, assuredly delivered in his familiar narrative drawl. His forthcoming second album is a deft but noticeable step up from his debut, fulfilling his promise, and then some. More information on the album will follow in the coming months. David has also just released his first book of poetry.

David Keenan will be heading out on tour this coming autumn and winter.
