Ireland’s Imelda May recently opened up for Wanda Jackson at Central Park Summerstage in support of her most recent album, Mayhem. Though it came out last year across the pond, Mayhem is still tearing up the rockabilly charts on amazon.co.uk and its been doing pretty well here too since its July 19 US release. Imelda is currently on the road in North America for about a half dozen dates, including a high profile gig at Lollapalooza 2011. She’s playing some UK festivals in August, but she’ll be back in the US in the fall for (what will be probably be) a proper Mayhem tour and a show Bowery Ballroom on Oct 1, 2011 (Buy Tickets).

One thought on “Imelda May Played Central Park Summerstage, Playing Bowery Ballroom”

  1. I attended this show as well and was a relative newbie to both performers as I never fully followed the Rockabilly genre. Needless to say this was a perfect night of weather, and most importantly music. I had a blast from beginning to end and even managed to catch the opening band from Queens who played a brand of Ethnic Prog. These are some awesome images. I feel like I was in the front row as opposed to the back. Rock on.
