Sinead O’Connor, St George’s, Bristol – 12th March 2012
There has never been mistaking Sinead O’Connor for anybody else. With a voice born to break as many hearts as windows, as tender as it is lethal, the face, simultaneously that of ocean-wide-eyed angel and shaven-headed warrior queen, and the spirit, courageous in its conviction, undaunted by controversy and fortified with endless reserves of resilience, O’Connor has trodden a unique path to become the most iconic Irish female artist of the past 30 years.
Following an ‘extraordinary’ (London Evening Standard), critically acclaimed live show at Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions, Sinead is touring in support of her superlative new album ‘How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?’, set for release February 2012, bringing her unquestionable talent to a spellbinding set of beautifully emotive songs.

And as Sinead takes to the stage and opens her mouth to sing, the years melt away. Dipping and soaring in effortless grace, here is the incredible voice that brought such emotional punch to her unforgettable version of Prince’s Nothing Compares 2 U and launched her to global stardom 20 years ago.
‘Breathtaking … this most intense and fearless of performers is on her game [and] she’s electric.’ London Evening Standard
