Stop the presses, hold the phone, news just in.

Our favourite controversial Irish singer, Sinead O’Connor, has unfortunately cancelled her show at the Galway International Arts Festival on Thursday July 23rd. The G.I.A.F team took to Facebook this evening to announce the bad news:

“With regret Galway International Arts Festival and Roisin Dubh wish to announce that due to illness Sinead O’Connor has cancelled all of her summer dates including her Festival Big Top show scheduled for this coming Thursday 23 July.THE CONCERT WILL GO AHEAD with JOHN GRANT performing, as advertised, with new special guests Festival favourites the Sharon Shannon Big Band added to the bill.”

Oh well, we’ll have to make do with Sharon and John!
