Twenty years after the release of White Ladder, David Gray has been announced as the next major act set to take the stage at Cork’s Musgrave Park this summer.
After a sell-out night at Live at the Marquee last summer, the UK singer/songwriter (51), best-known for his hit songs This Year’s Love, Babylon, Please Forgive Me and Sail Away, will land on Leeside once again on June 20th, 2020.

At a media briefing held at the Metropole Hotel on MacCurtain Street and attended by the singer this afternoon, MCD Productions confirmed that Gray will include Cork in the Irish leg of his White Ladder 20th anniversary tour, which will also visit Dublin over three nights from April 2nd-4th, 2020.
The news will be music to the ears of Gray’s legion of Irish fans; re-released on ATO Records in 2000, White Ladder sold 100,000 copies in Ireland alone, keeping it at number one for six weeks.
