Fresh from supporting Westlife across two-nights in Cork’s Páirc Uí Chaoimh and the release of their brand new single ‘Modern Colosseum’; Irish pop connoisseurs Wild Youth are gearing up for their October Irish tour, and in particular the biggest headline show of their career to date in Dublin’s 3Olympia Theatre on Thursday 27th October 2022.
A constant mainstay on Irish airwaves and music charts since their debut in 2017, Wild Youth’s international appeal has seen them become an equally present force across streaming platforms, with well over 10M streams on Spotify alone to their name.
With the support of their loyal and ever-growing fanbase who remain thirsty for their signature catchy choruses, David Whelan, Conor O’Donohoe, Ed Porter and Callum McAdam’s unapologetic creativity has seen them tour alongside household names like Mumford and Sons, The Script and Niall Horan to name but a few.
Last year, they released their colourful six-track EP Forever Girl, which highlighted Wild Youth’s determination to not be labelled as your average pop group, showcasing a collective diversity and boldness when it comes to sonic risk taking. Though spanning in style and execution, from the flirtatious “Champagne Butterflies” to the abrasive powerhouse anthem “Can’t Say No”, one thing consistently remains across Forever Girl: their ability to craft credible music and exhilarating choruses calling for ‘out of body’ experiences, while simultaneously maintaining their homegrown, humble values.
Forever Girl Saw Wild Youth land multiple New Music Friday placements on Spotify, alongside becoming the face of their New Pop UK playlist twice amongst vital placements across key editorial playlists including The Pop List, New Pop Revolution, Happy Pop Hits, Fresh Pop, and The Pop Lounge. Apple Music have supported Wild Youth via A-List Pop, Breaking Pop and Alt Pop placements in addition to landing Pop Fresh on Deezer and The Best New Music on Shazam.
Wild Youth will be supported on the night by Dublin R&B/Pop songwriter Erica Cody and Elle Coves.
