More Info
David Keenan's will play 3Olympia Theatre on  Thursday 5th May 2022. With special guest Jinx Lennon

All original tickets for 12th December 2021 remain valid for the new date.

His second album "What Then" was released in October 2021 to coincide with a headline tour across Ireland, Europe and the UK. See Irish Times interview here and Hot Press review here.

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. David has also just released his first book of poetry.
