22 MAY 2015 - OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM GILBERT

To all my fans who had tickets for the English tour, I’m every bit as disappointed as you are that, for a number of reasons, we’ve had to postpone our English shows, and I do mean postpone.

I deeply regret the inconvenience this may have caused many of you.

All being well, by the end of the year I look forward to being back on stage in the UK!

Thank you for your ongoing support as always.

Gilbert O’Sullivan


21 MAY 2015 - ENGLISH TOUR DATES CANCELLED

Ticket buyers are advised to obtain a full refund from the point of purchase.

Gilbert O'Sullivan would like to take this opportunity to apologise to all his fans for any inconvenience and disappointment caused.

NOTE: The 5 Irish concert dates will go ahead as planned.



29 APRIL 2015 - LATIN ALA G!

The album stems from O'Sullivan's love of Latin music from the early sixties, when Brazilian artists such as Astrud Gilberto and Sergio Mendes began to gain worldwide popularity. This, combined with an admiration for Peggy Lee whom he dueted with in the nineties - 'I regard Peggy Lee, along with Ella Fitzgerald, as the greatest female interpreter of song' says Gilbert - formed the basis of a concept that would become Latin ala G.


'Concept for the album is based on my love of two albums Peggy Lee made in 1960, Latin Ala Lee and Ole Ala Lee. It's nice to incorporate the 'pop songs' I write in a Latin style, not least the experience of recording them with some of Spain's finest musicians. As a homage to Peggy, we've recreated the cover of her Latin Ala Lee album as Latin Ala G.'

Gilbert's new studio album Latin ala G! will be released on the 8th June 2015.....track listing


 

14 APRIL 2015 - LONDON VENUE CHANGE

The latest information suggests that the new album, Gilbertville will be released in Japan in October. Gilbert is currently in negotiations with a record company with a view to getting a European release for the album. Depending how negotiations go, the European release may be in October or failing that early in the New Year. Gilbert is frustrated by the delay in getting the album released but is acutely aware that the right record deal could also see his back catalogue available for download online.  The live album recorded at the Olympia Theatre in Oct 2008 is still in the mixing stage.  Once the mixing of the soundtrack is completed it will be added to the concert footage and a DVD will be released. Gilbert will be attending the Guth Gafa Documentary Festival in Gortahork, County Donegal on the 12th June where he will take part in a Question And Answer session after the screening of the documentary Out On His Own.

THE LATE LATE SHOW - 27 FEB 2010

Gilbert made a very popular and successful return to the RTE Television studios last night for his appearance on The Late Late Show, hosted by Ryan Tubridy.  Gilbert was originally scheduled to sing two songs, one old and one new, but such was the public reaction to news of his appearance, that the sheer volume of telephone calls, texts and emails to the Late Late Show office resulted in host Ryan Tubridy requesting that Gilbert sing a third song. Accompanied on guitar by Jimmy Smyth, Gilbert sang All They Wanted To Say, a track fom his forthcoming album and followed that with the two classics; Nothing Rhymed and Alone Again (Naturally) and even managed to squeeze in a verse of Ooh Wakka Doo Wakka Day, which the audience sang along to.  Also appearing on the Late Late show were Irish singer, Mary Coughlan and Scottish singer Eddi Reader.  They both stopped by Gilbert's dressing room to say hello.  Mary is very interested in recording one of Gilbert's songs; At The Very Mention Of Your Name.

NASHVILLE - 25 MARCH 2009


PHOTO BY ADRIAN McCARTHY


Gilbert returned recently from a very successful recording session in Nashville and was very happy with the results.  He went initially with the intention of recording six to eight songs, but the sessions went so well that he extended his stay and recorded ten tracks.  The tracks still need a lot of work; in fact Gilbert has still to write lyrics for four of the songs.  He is particularly happy with the outcome of a ballad called "All I Wanted To Say" and mentioned that "Hitler Could Have Made It With You" turned out pretty good also.  These ten songs along with the four big orchestra songs he recorded in November will form the basis of his next album.  This is really the first time Gilbert has recorded with a large orchestra since the 1995 release of "Every Song Has It's Play".  A choir has still to be added to one of the orchestra songs.  Ideally he would like to concentrate solely on the new material and get it ready for release but he will need to take some time out to prepare for the upcoming live shows.  That said, Gilbert hopes to have a new album released later this year.



USA DATES - 25 MARCH 2009

Still no news about any live U.S. dates but efforts are ongoing.  As I've mentioned before, it is up to the promoters as to where and when Gilbert will play in the USA, but Gilbert is very keen for it to happen.  Two dates have been pencilled in but not confirmed for Ireland in November: Killarney [Nov 6] and Castlebar [Nov 7].
