Thank you - Dido has announced a massive gig in Cork for next summer

The icon we deserve.

Dido has announced that she'll be playing a massive gig in Cork next summer.

The 'White Flag' singer will be taking to the stage on June 10, 2020 for the 16th annual Live at the Marquee festival.

Understandably, she'll be belting out all of her absolute bangers including the aforementioned 'White Flag,' 'Thank You,' and 'Life for Rent.'

She'll also be singing some tracks from her latest album, Still On My Mind, released earlier this year.

Dido has sold over forty million albums across her career to date, as well as making two of the best-selling albums in British chart history.

Her 1999 album No Angel remains the top-selling debut by a British female artist in the world - ever.

Dido took a break from touring after the success of her 2008 album, Safe Trip Home. She decided not to take the record on the road, and instead focused on her family and personal life.

She did, however, continue to release music.

“I wanted to capture the feeling I still get from listening to music,” she said.

“Just that rush, like you just don't need anything more than this. I've lived a life which is just music. I hear melodies in my head. Music is comfort, it is excitement, it's everything, and it is always there for me.”

Tickets for Dido's Live at the Marquee gig in 2020 go on sale Thursday, December 5 at 9am from Ticketmaster and other usual ticket outlets.
