Ray Davies has confirmed details of a one-night-only show in Dublin's O2. The former Kinks man will take to the stage on Sunday 21st October.

Davies is one of the most respected and prolific figures in rock n' roll history. Davies, along with his brother Dave, formed The Kinks in London in 1963 and the band went on to record some of the most well-known songs from that era, such as 'You Really Got Me', 'All Day and All of the Night', 'Lola', and 'Sunny Afternoon', among many others.

Affectionately referred to as the “Godfather of Brit Pop”, Ray Davies is cited as a major influence on artists such as Pete Townshend, Paul Weller, Morrissey, Damon Albarn and many more. Ray Davies’ songs have become hits for bands including The Jam, Van Halen, The Pretenders and The Stranglers.

Davies is currently working on numerous new projects, including a 'Best Of' Kinks collection which will hit the shelves in August.
