With an Irish number one album under her sparkly belt for the recent Electra Heart, Marina and The Diamonds announced a show at The Olympia Theatre on October 17th. Talking about the record, Marina says,"It's an ode to dysfunctional love. I based the project around character types commonly found in love stories, film and theatre, usually ones associated with power and control in love, as opposed to weakness or defeat. I guess it was a way of dealing with the embarrassment that, for the first time in my life, I got 'played'. Rejection is a universally embarrassing topic and Electra Heart is my response to that. It is a frank album".

Tickets from €27.90 are on sale from this Friday.
