Although it was only in April 2017 when Imelda May last graced our stage, supporting The Who in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, it has been 5 years since she made her headline debut at the venue. Now, armed with new music from her fifth studio album – one of the most critically acclaimed releases of 2017, this was a triumphant return for the superstar singer and songwriter.
