The Irish country star made a live Facebook announcement yesterday about his show at the 3Arena Dublin this April, which is set to be the biggest concert of his career.

Nathan was obviously very excited to share the news that the gig will be recorded for a live DVD.

“Anyone that’s here, you’re going to be part of something special”

“It’s going to be the biggest show I’ve ever done,” he said.

Nathan is a Liverpool native and lived in Donegal. It’s expected that many local fans will be making the trip to the capital to see him celebrate a standout show.

The arena show will see Nathan performing in front of 9,000 fans. He will have a 15-piece band, along with Sharon Shannon and her band as support act. Special guests are expected to pop up throughout the night.

He also had a cheeky little warning for his fans to behave during the live recording – “Don’t bring anyone you don’t want to be seen with.”

Just 200 tickets remain for show, Nathan said, before expressing his amazement at the level of excitement that is surrounding the gig.

“I can’t believe so many thousands of people have bought tickets. I never really dreamt it would happen so thank you so much for making my dreams become real,” Nathan said.

Nathan will be performing in Belfast on the night before his career-defining show in Dublin. There are approx 300 seats remaining for the Belfast SSE Arena gig, he said.

Wontcha Come Down

Nathan’s new single “Wontcha Come Down” was released on Monday and has been playing out on the airwaves across Donegal this week. The track is from his 2016 album Stayin Up All Night, which peaked at Number 1 on the Irish charts.

Nathan is currently recording some new songs and is set to tour Ireland this summer and perform at festivals all over the country. After this announcement, the 3Arena show this April is going to be one he’ll never forget.

“I’ve played for the last eight/nine years in pubs, clubs, working mans’ clubs and done a lot of dances. I never dreamt at all that I would ever be standing on a stage in front of 9,000 people at my own show,” Nathan said.
