Conchita Wurst, the bearded lady who swept the boards at this year’s Eurovision International Song Contest, will perform live at The George on Friday 27th June to celebrate this year’s Dublin Pride Festival.

This will be Conchita’s first live performance in Ireland since her Eurovision victory, and an opportunity to thank all of her Irish fans for their support. 

“I’m really looking forward to performing at The George and being part of the Dublin Pride Festival,”  said Conchita to Irish media recently. “I want to spread my message of tolerance, acceptance and respect for people who are different – I know my Irish supporters will help me do just that”.

Darragh Flynn of The George said:

“Since her win at Eurovision, Conchita has become a worldwide sensation – we are thrilled to have her perform again at the George and share in our Pride celebrations. Conchita embodies what The George is all about – acceptance, respect and fun – it’s going to be some party!”

As part of her performance at The George, Conchita will sing her winning Eurovision song Rise Like a Phoenix.

“‘Rise Like a Phoenix’ is a powerful song that makes a strong statement,” Conchita said of her Eurovision-winning tune, “one that I can support 100%. No matter how hard things are, you can learn from these times and grow”.

Hosted by Shirley Temple Bar, doors will open at 8pm and admission is €15. For more, visitthegeorge.ie
