Multi-dimensional singer-songwriter Rina Sawayama has today announced the UK & Ireland dates as part of her Hold The Girl tour, which includes a show in 3Olympia Theatre on Saturday 15th October 2022.

Tickets from €28.90 including booking fees go on sale Friday 27th May at 10am.

The announcement comes as she gears up for the release of her brand new album Hold The Girl, which is due on September via Dirty Hit and off the back of the launch of the album’s first single ‘This Hell’.

Speaking about the new single, Rina explains “I had so much fun writing 'This Hell.' The past couple of years I've been listening to lots of female country singers and wanted to write a euphoric and tongue-in-cheek country-pop song. Country music at its core to me represents comfort, brilliant storytelling and authentic expression of the writer's reality. I’ve been dreaming of working with Paul Epworth my entire career so I knew it was meant to be when we finished this song in a day. I put in as many iconic pop culture moments as I can, but the song is more than that.”

In 2020, Rina’s debut album SAWAYAMA became one of the most critically acclaimed albums that year landing on over 50 album of the year lists, including the New York Times (#2), The Guardian (#3) and Rolling Stone (#6). The last 18 months have seen Rina Sawayama achieve a magnitude of milestones including changing the Mercury Prize and BRITs eligibility rules which meant Non-British artists could apply if they have been a permanent resident in the UK for more than 5 years. In 2021 Elton John joined forces with the pop star to release a special rendition of “Chosen Family," a powerful and emotional ode to her LGBTQ+ family. Elsewhere Rina injected new life into Lady Gaga’s instant club classic “Free Woman.” 2023 will see Rina in her film acting debut as she stars in John Wick 4 alongside Keanu Reeves.
