60's folk icon Donovan, a new member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, has confirmed details of an Irish date. The Scot will play the Olympia Theatre in Dublin on Saturday 26th October.
Donovan was one of the more influential movers & shakers of the 60's folk movement. Early songs like Catch The Wind, Colours and his version of Buffy Sainte Marie’s protest anthem Universal Soldier, helped launch his career. But, from 1966 through 1969, Donovan scored a string of eleven Top 40 hits in a row, including Mellow Yellow, Sunshine Superman, Epistle To Dippy, There Is A Mountain, Wear Your Love Like Heaven, Hurdy Gurdy Man, Jennifer Juniper, Lalena, Atlantis, and Riki Tiki Tavi.
Donovan has collaborated with a 'who's who' of music's most iconic figures over the years, including Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck.
Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday 7th June and will set you back €23.
