From his humble beginnings as a street performer to selling out stadiums across the globe, Kennedy expertly balances pop ambition with raw authenticity. The Irish singer/songwriter’s style is characterized by a unique fusion of folk, rock and hip-hop instrumentals accompanied by achingly emotional lyrics that explore universal truths. After honing his artistry with a string of successful EPs and singles, Kennedy released his 2019 debut album “Without Fear,” which spawned the acclaimed singles “Outnumbered” and “Power Over Me.” The seminal album debuted at No. 1 on the Irish Albums Chart, becoming the fastest-selling album of 2019. The release also enjoyed monumental success in the UK, debuting at No. 1 and marking Kennedy’s first foray into international audiences.
The rising star has amassed nearly four billion streams across a variety of platforms and has competed for international male solo artist at the BRIT Awards. His latest release, “Sonder” (2022), featured the chart-topping singles “Better Days,” “Something to Someone” and “Kiss Me.” In a sea of generic, mindless pop, Kennedy is committed to conveying genuine passion through his expressive storytelling and distinct sound. Doors open at 7 p.m.
