Like many other major music touring acts, Imelda May postponed her 2020 headlining City of Derry Jazz Festival concert due to the coronavirus pandemic when organisers were forced to postpone the 2020 Festival.

Customers with existing tickets for the postponed event scheduled for 7th May 2020 are still valid for the rescheduled show on 2nd May 2021.

If this new date is suitable you do not need to take any further action, simply make a note of the new date on your ticket(s). If this date is not suitable please email and our Box Office team will be happy to assist you with a refund.

Imelda May, born and raised in The Liberties area of Dublin, has become one of Ireland’s most celebrated female artists. Her album ‘Love Tattoo’ was recently declared the best-selling album of all time by a homegrown female artist in Ireland.

Discovered by Jools Holland, Imelda has since staged her own sold out tours across the UK, Ireland, Europe, North America & Australia – performing for royalty, presidents & major events around the world. She’s performed with legendary artists such as Lou Reed, Bono, Elvis Costello, Jeff Beck, Van Morrison, Robert Plant and has most recently sung several songs on Hollywood actor Jeff Goldblum’s debut jazz album, as well as on Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood’s Chuck Berry tribute album.

Imelda’s latest album ‘Life Love Flesh Blood’, produced by the legendary T-Bone Burnett, was a departure from her rockabilly revival style with a bold new sound that sits firmly outside of any sharply defined genre box, widely spanning blues, rock, soul, gospel and jazz. The most personal & honest album she’s ever written is filled with songs of heartbreak, desire, loss, & liberation and was the fifth best-selling female album globally in 2017.

As well as selling millions of records worldwide, Imelda has also developed her own music TV show (‘The Imelda May Show’ on RTE), and is a Women’s Rights Activist and Poet.

Imelda May performs at the Millennium Forum on Sunday 2nd May 2021. Tickets for Thursday 7th May 2020 are valid for the new date and you do not have to contact us.

If the new date does not suit, please contact for a full refund.  We would ask that any refund requests are made before 30th September 2020 as requests after this time will not be processed.
