The Outnumbered singer will be playing Dublin's 3Arena on 13 and 14 December, and best of all, he'll be performing for a very good cause.

The show is a full concert titled You Won't Go Lonely, and all the profits made from the two nights will be split between Focus Ireland and Pieta House.

Focus Ireland provides services for those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in Ireland, while Pieta House offers free therapeutic mental health services.

Tickets go on sale this Friday 19 November at 9am on Ticketmaster.

Confirming the shows, Dermot said: "I’m so grateful to be playing two shows in Dublin this December in aid of Pieta and Focus Ireland, two incredible charities"

He continued: "Suicide and homelessness are two issues that are sadly so prevalent in Ireland today.

"There are so many people that badly need our help, especially at this time of year. Please think of them and let’s come together and raise as much money as we can for these extremely important causes."

It's been a busy year for Dermot Kennedy, all things considered. His single Better Days climbed the charts and nabbed a spot in the UK's Top 20 singles chart, while in Ireland it reached the Top 5.

In September, he delighted audiences across the pond by performing to over 90,000 fans on his UK tour. This included three sold-out performances in the prestigious Alexandra Palace in London.

Fresh off the UK tour, Dermot headed state-side for a US tour in which he enjoyed a triumphant sold-out performance at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado.

On top of that, Dermot has become the biggest selling Irish artist for the millennium. His debut album sat in the top spot on the Irish album charts for 29 weeks and sold 1.7 million copies worldwide.
