Confidence Man have announced their first-ever headline show in Ireland, following superb shows at Beatyard and Body & Soul festivals in the last two years. The Australian group are noted for their spectacular, high-energy shows and we are surprised it’s taken an Irish promoter so long to book them for a proper Irish show.
What’s better yet is that their performance in The Button Factory this April is a late show ensuring that you end your night on a high. We caught up with Confidence Man back in 2018 to talk baby Guinness, Roscommon and dirty dancing – read the interview here.
The tour announcement coincides with the band’s first single in over a year, Does It Make You Feel Good. The video for the song takes inspiration from the band’s cult-like following at shows, including elements of hypnotisms, alters, rituals and levitation in the video, which was shot in Berlin, as band member Janet Planet recalls: “This is real-life footage of our night out in Berlin a few weeks ago. Didn’t get into Berghain but we found a cool group of people to worship us anyway. Look we can fly, so suck on that God.”
Confidence Man’s Janet Planet recently told Triple J in her homeland about how U2 are fans of the group and in constant contact with them, even joking that The Edge was lined up to play the tambourine on their new album.
