Zagreb, 29 November 2019 – Irish singer-songwriter Sinead O’Connor is coming to perform for the first time in the Croatian capital Zagreb in January.
Sinead, who rose to fame in the late 1980s and achieved worldwide success in 1990 with a new arrangement of Prince’s song “Nothing Compares 2 U”, will perform at Tvornica Kulture on 15 January 2020.
Sinead has an extremely colourful career, marked by a number of scandals, controversial and great songs. Her version “Nothing Compares 2 U” is one of the greatest pop hits of all time and one of the most played songs on radio stations in the last 30 years. At the height of her career in the early 1990s, fans of her work included names such as Elton John, Bono, Mary J. Blige and many others.
Some of the scandals which have marked her career include a public war with Madonna, tearing up the Pope’s images on a Saturday Night Live show, interrupting major concerts, and requests to delete her from the Grammy nominations she often received.
Despite all this, Sinead is experiencing a resurgence in her career, and with a new band behind she is regularly selling out concert halls in Ireland and around Europe. After her Zagreb concert, Sinead will embark on her big American tour, the first in a number of years.
Tickets for the Zagreb concert are limited to 1,200 and they have gone on sale today at the early bird price of 180 kuna. After 23 December, tickets will cost 200 kuna and on the day of the concert, 290 kuna.
Official ticket sellers are Dirty Old Shop (Tratinska 18), Rockmark (Berislavićeva 13), Aquarius CD Shop (Varšavska 13), Dallas Music Shop Rijeka (Splitska 2a), all Eventim outlets and online at www.eventim.hr.
