Live In Concert

The Irish superstar announces first national Australian tour as part of his 50th Anniversary celebrations.

“I am so looking forward to the upcoming concerts in Australia. I visited once before some years back for 3 shows but not with a full band. So while it’s been a long time in the making, I hope for all those that are fans of my music we live up to your expectations, and between us all, we have a great tour. Here’s to March 2018!”   – Gilbert O’Sullivan

Gilbert O’Sullivan is best known worldwide for his hit singles Alone Again (Naturally), Clair and Get Down – all released in the early ‘70s and still heard on radio to this day.

‘Nothing Rhymed’ Gilbert’s first single was released in 1970 and was an instant hit in the UK, reaching the Top 10 on the UK charts. In 1972 Gilbert firmly cemented himself amongst the world’s best with his second album ‘Alone Again (Naturally)’. This critically acclaimed album topped both the UK & US charts for an astonishing 6-weeks, earning him 3 Grammy nominations.

Gilbert hit the heights of his career in the 70s but has never been far from the recording studio.  He welcomed the 80s with another hit single – What’s In A Kiss? – a Top 10 hit in Ireland and Top 20 in the UK and US.

The 2000s have seen Gilbert enjoying a renewed interest in his music with artists such as Neil Diamond, Dianna Krall and Michael Buble releasing cover versions of his songs. Gilbert has also found a renewed love for touring. He toured across the UK and Ireland in 2015 and 2016.

2017 began his 50th anniversary in music celebrations with a solo performance at the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool. He recently completed a sold out 14-date UK tour March and dates in Asia and Europe.

In September 2017 Gilbert was chosen to perform at BBC Radio 2 Proms In The Park at Hyde Park, London to a crowd of 50,000 people. He performed alongside Sir Ray Davies, Texas, Steps and many more.
