Sinéad O’Connor cancels all live shows for 2022 due to grief at son’s passing


Sinéad O’Connor has cancelled all upcoming gigs scheduled for 2022, as she continues to grieve for her son Shane who passed away tragically earlier this year.

That includes shows at Iveagh Gardens on July 17th, Galway International Arts Festival on 24th July and All Together Now Festival from July 29th to 31st.

In a statement today, Sinéad O’Connor’s management said that “due to continuing grief over the tragic loss of her beloved son Shane earlier this year, Sinead O’Connor will not be performing live in 2022.”

“This has not been an easy decision for Sinead but a decision she has had to make for her own health and wellbeing at this time.
