The Glenageary-born singer-songwriter Sinead O'Connor performs alt-pop and new wave folk-rock in aid of the charity, Mad Pride Ireland, on her Crazy Baldhead tour while accompanied by her new 7-piece band. The singer, who hit the height of fame in the 1980s with heartfelt classics like the lovelorn ballad 'Nothing Compares 2 U', presents her latest works and songs from a career spanning 25 years. Praise for her latest album, How About I Be Me (And You Be You), shows a welcome return to form - "The Irish songbird's best album in years" notes the BBC, and "feisty, fresh and confident" writes The Independent - so expect tickets for these London shows to sell out fast.
This gorgeous 18th century Grade I listed Hawksmoor church is one of a number of London churches which has, in recent years, been converted into a concert venue where the acoustics have proved surprisingly good. LSO St Luke's has been restored to become the home of the London Symphony Orchestra's community and music education programme. More about LSO St Luke's
