Rising Dublin singer-songwriter, Dermot Kennedy, has announced that he will be playing a massive show at the 3Arena this December.

Having announced the release date for his debut album ‘Without Fear’, the Dubliner has also announced his biggest ever UK and Ireland tour, stopping off in the Docklands venue on December 22nd.

Kennedy has previously sold out a string of nights at the Olympia Theatre, and also played Coachella last April. This weekend, he’ll play Malahide Castle alongside Mumford and Sons.

Kennedy also released his new single ‘Outnumbered’ on Thursday, taken from the upcoming new album.

On ‘Outnumbered’ Dermot said: “Outnumbered is an attempt to comfort anybody who is feeling overwhelmed. A reminder that beauty can be found no matter how dark the night may seem. I hope it can be a source of reassurance to anyone going through hard times. To know that things will get better and that hard times will become a thing of the past.”

‘Without Fear’ will be released on September 27 and is available to pre-order now via www.dermotkennedy.com. Pre-order the album by 12pm on June 18, and fans will receive a unique code that will allow access to a ticket pre-sale for the 3Arena show.
