George Ezra announces support acts for next week's Irish shows

He's riding shotgun on the tour bus, presumably.

George Ezra, he of the sound of the summer in 2018 with the relentlessly catchy 'Shotgun', is set for a return to Irish shores next week.

Seriously, that song was everywhere.

There's even an as Gaeilge version.

Anyway, the 26-year-old crooner has three sold-out shows on the horizon as he looks forward to headlining Irish Independent Park in Cork on Thursday 20 June, Malahide Castle in Dublin on Friday 21 June, and Belfast's Ormeau Park on Saturday 22 June.

As noted, all three are completely sold out so if you didn't get a ticket, it's a case of better luck next time.

If you are heading along, however, you'll likely want to know what guests Ezra is bringing along for company on all three dates.

As luck would have it, we're here to furnish you with that information.

Joining the Hertfordshire man on his Irish jaunt will be none other than UK indie kings The Vaccines and acoustic-friendly duo KAWALA.

The Vaccines, of course, are no strangers to Ireland, regularly popping up at festivals and mostly recently headlining a big outdoor show in Kilmainham in the summer of 2016.

KAWALA, however, are a much newer proposition that cite Bombay Bicycle Club as a key influence.

They've visited here before, enjoying an intimate Upstairs @ Whelan's headliner in the capital, so they should be able to step up to 20,000 people a night, right?
