The Gloaming announce dates at London’s Union Chapel

Following sold-out performances at Royal Albert Hall, The Barbican and the Southbank Centre,  highly acclaimed supergroup The Gloaming return to their spiritual home in London, the Union Chapel, on the 26th and 28th of February 2019.

Anyone lucky enough to witness the group’s legendary early shows at the intimate venue will attest to the incredible connection between band and audience at the architectural treasure on Compton Terrace.

Said The Gloaming’s Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh:  “Union Chapel is quite possibly the most visually stunning and acoustically beautiful space we’ve ever made music in.   The vast space, air the colour of vellum, that we’ll be playing there again gives us all a proper thrill.”

Earlier this year, The Gloaming released a critically acclaimed live album —Live at the NCH— which captured the spirit of their 24 sold-out performances at the National Concert Hall in Dublin. They also began work on their 3rd studio LP which has an anticipated release date of Spring 2019. This not-to-be-missed performance at Union Chapel which will no doubt include some of this new material.
