Marina to kick off European tour with Olympia Theatre gig this October

by Rachel Darcy

Singer-songwriter Marina, formerly known as Marina and the Diamonds, has announced a date at the Olympia Theatre this October.

The Welsh vocalist announced the Dublin show as part of a string of six European dates later on this year in support of her latest album, Love + Fear.

The Olympia Theatre gig will take place on October 30, kicking off the tour which will also take in shows in France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Greece.

Marina announced in 2018 that she would no longer perform under the ‘and the Diamonds’ moniker – a nod to her surname Diamandis – that she released her first three albums under.

In an interview earlier this year, Diamandis said: “It took me well over a year to figure out that a lot of my identity was tied up in who I was as an artist, and there wasn’t much left of who I was.”

Best known for hits like ‘Primadonna’ and ‘Hollywood’, Marina released her first album in four years, the long-awaited Love + Fear, to rave reviews from her fans and critics alike.

Tickets for Marina’s Olympia Theatre gig go on sale Friday, June 21 at 10am from Ticketmaster.
