DAVID Gray is expected to play a gig in Musgrave Park next year as part of a tour for the anniversary of one of his most successful albums.

The ‘Babylon’ singer is touring with his acclaimed White Ladder 20th anniversary tour, which also includes three nights in the 3 Arena in Dublin.

The British singer-songwriter, who played Live at the Marquee earlier this year, released his first album in 1993 and received worldwide attention after the release of White Ladder six years later.

It went on to become the highest-selling album in Ireland.

The date of his Cork gig is expected to be announced on Monday.

Gray is already performing in Dublin on April 2, 3, and 4 in 2020.

Musgrave Park announced itself as a top concert venue in Cork earlier this year with a series of huge gigs.

Liam Gallagher, George Ezra, and Lauryn Hill were among the international acts to take to the stadium stage in front of massive crowds.

A number of Irish acts, including Hozier, The Coronas, and Walking on Cars, also took to the stage in 2019.

Cork is already looking forward to a stellar series of gigs in 2020.

Corkonians can look forward to Westlife playing two nights at Páirc Ui Chaoimh.

The pop foursome recently announced the August gigs at the Páirc as part of their 2020 plans, with the Cork gigs the only Irish nights scheduled for next year.

Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy, who enjoyed a huge year in 2019, also recently announced a Cork gig.

The ‘Power over Me’ singer will take to the stage at Musgrave Park on June 27 after he played international festivals Marley Park with Mumford and Sons, and a US tour this year.

Tickets for Kennedy’s Cork gig next year are already sold out.

As well as huge stadium gigs to look forward to, Cork is also gearing up for the final year of Live At The Marquee at its Monahan Rd location next year.
