More Info
Irish homegrown hero Somebody’s Child is set to make his triumphant return to Dublin in 2024.
Somebody’s Child has just announced his biggest headline to date in 3Olympia Theatre Dublin on Friday 12th April 2024.

Tickets priced from €22.50 including booking fee & €1.50 restoration levy on sale now via Ticketmaster.ie.

With special guests Declan Welsh & the Decadent West, and Florence Road.

Somebody’s Child’s self-titled debut album, released on 3rd February 2023, was the culmination of years of work. Cian Godfrey had started the project in his native Dublin in 2018 with a series of infectious indie-pop singles that garnered attention both at home in Ireland and across the water in the UK. Early support slots with the likes of Primal Scream and Kaiser Chiefs as well as an appearance on The Late Late Show helped to quickly bring Somebody’s Child to the public’s consciousness - and before too long US indie label Frenchkiss Records (The Drums, Passion Pit) came knocking.

The LP was produced by Mikko Gordon (Arcade Fire, The Smile) at East London’s Hackney Road Studios, and featured a handful of fan favourites alongside newly-penned material. Upon its release, it garnered positive reviews from the likes of CLASH, The Irish Times and Hot Press amongst others - notable radio support came from RTE 2FM, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music and NPO 3FM in the Netherlands.

The band were invited to perform a live session at the legendary BBC Maida Vale Studios and every date on the February 2023 tour of the UK (from Southampton to Glasgow) was a complete sell-out - that was before a triumphant sold-out homecoming show at Dublin’s Academy venue. Early 2023 also saw the band showcase at Eurosonic in Groningen and take their first steps in the USA with two well-received performances at SXSW in Austin. Notable appearances at Best Kept Secret, Truck Festival, Boardmasters and Reading & Leeds followed that summer.

There’s a feeling though that all this is just the beginning - the next few years are set to be exciting ones for Somebody’s Child.
