Sinead O’Connor is going to perform on Slodowa Island during WrocLove Fest 2012 on 19th June 2012. This will be her first concert in Poland after the release of her latest album “How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?“.
Sinead O’Connor can’t be confused with any other figure on the music scene. This is a singer having sensitive, breaking the hearts, yet psychedelic and disturbing voice. It is also a rebellious spirit, the warrior queen of music. Tireless in her actions, despite the controversy, which for all the years has gathered around her, not giving up, giving numerous concerts, and releasing better and better albums. Sinead O’Connor is certainly a unique phenomenon on the music scene, and her concerts are remembered for long time.
Sinead musical career flourished with the first hit “Mandika” in 1987, a multi-platinum success of ‘I Do Not Want What I Have not Got” with an unforgettable version of the Prince song “Nothing Compares 2 U” which strengthened her position in modern popular music. In the next years she cooperated with a lot of musicians and released the next albums in which she experimented with such distant musical genres as Irish folk “Sean-Nos Nua” (2002) and roots reggae “Throw Down Your Arms” (2005). She has worked with such artists as Peter Gabriel, Massive Attack, The Chieftans, Asian Dub Foundation, Burning Spear, and Sly & Robbie. Sinead O’Connor is one of the icons of Irish music, and has had this status for over 30 years of her artistic activity. Until now she has released 13 albums, the last “How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?” which appeared on the world market on March 5, 2012.
The concert will be held during the artist WrocLove Fest 2012, a three-day music event organized on the occasion of Wrocław days. The performance at the Fest WrocLove has already been confirmed by Gentleman, a reggae star, and Stephen Marley and Chambao the Spanish flamenco chill star.

I have a bad news for you. The concert was called off. There is also a good news. Probably Prince will come to Wroclaw, but we don’t know when. I will keep you informed.
Prince performed last year at Open’er Festival in Gdynia, and the concert was very well received by audience. The artist (born June 7, 1958 in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is the representative of such styles as soul, funk, R & B, dance and rock. He is a multi-instrumentalist. He plays not only on guitar but also on keyboards and drums. He composes, writes lyrics and produces music.
The Rolling Stone placed Prince among 100 most important artists of all time (28th place).
During his career Prince has sold over 100 million records.
On stage he is sometimes unpredictable, likes to shock the audience wearing eccentric outfits. During the concert in Wrocław he will perform such hits as “Purple Rain”, “Kiss” and “Partyman”.
The concert will take place even during Euro 2012, the last game at the stadium in Wroclaw will, however, be played June 16.
