Dermot Kennedy reflects back on his Madison Square Garden gig


It’s been one month since Dermot Kennedy played his first-ever headlining gig at Madison Square Garden, with the night itself no doubt being a massive career highlight for the former busker.

Ahead of his performance at the time, Dermot took to Instagram to share his excitement, writing: “Well the day has finally arrived. I’m not going to try to capture the feeling here, because I know I’ll fail.

“But from playing on street corners to a headline show at the most iconic venue in the world, and EVERYTHING in between.

“Please know that I am so so so grateful for this. Let’s make this special New York City.”

When the night had come to an end, Dermot described the experience as a “dream”.

Now, however, the singer is once again reflecting back on the magical night.

Taking to Instagram stories, Dermot shared a photo of Madison Square Garden lit up in the colours of the Irish flag.

“As we drove away from Madison Square Garden after we played there last month, the whole building was lit up in green, white and orange, all the way round.

“It was such a beautiful thing to see,” he added.

Following on from that high, Dermot also recently made history as he became the first-ever artist to sell out three nights in Limerick’s Thomond Park, playing to a crowd of 90,000 strong.

Thanking fans, Dermot wrote on Twitter: “What a beautiful feeling these last few days have been!! Thank you thank you thank you.”

G’wan Dermot!
