CHART-TOPPERS Kodaline are the latest act to be confirmed for this summer's Live at the Marquee festival.

The Dublin-based quartet will play in Cork on June 7, joining a host of other big names at the summer concert series. It is their first gig in Cork since 2015.

Aiken Promotions have confirmed that tickets will go on sale this Friday, February 2 at 10am from Ticketmaster.

The tour is expected to be preceded by a new album. Last year, Kodaline released 'Brother', their first new song since 2015. It was the first taste from the band's third album.

It will be their first since 2015's 'Coming Up For Air', which topped the charts in Ireland and went gold in the UK. It sold over a million copies and has resulted in hundreds of millions of streams on digital music platforms.

Fans of the band will be thrilled as the band returns to live performances in the coming months, following a long break. They have previously sold out the Marquee in Cork in 2015, as well as playing headline slots at Indiependence and Longitude in recent years.

Late last year, Kodaline postponed some 26 live performances all across Europe to the devastation of their fans.

The band opted to cancel their live shows to focus on finishing their forthcoming third album.

They have yet to reschedule many of their European shows but Irish fans won't have long to wait. The band also confirmed a date at Galway's Big Top later in the summer, as well as a headline show at Malahide Castle on June 8.

Kodaline are the latest in a long line of names to be confirmed for next year's Live at the Marquee.

Fourteen other performances have already been confirmed, including Norwegian pop superstars A-Ha (June 12); 'American Pie' singer Don McLean (June 14); Bell X1, who will perform a greatest hits show to celebrate their 20th anniversary on June 15; and chart-topping sensations Picture This (June 19.). 

The line up also included Jenny Greene & the RTÉ Concert Orchestra (June 22 and 23), the Script (June 25 and 26), Christy Moore (June 30), Nathan Carter (July 1), Alanis Morisette (July 4) and the Coronas (July 13).

Tickets are moving fast, though, with many shows already sold out. See www.aikenpromotions.com for full details on all events.
