The R&B sensation announces her first headline Irish date...

KELIS is to play her first Irish headline show at DUBLIN HQ on August 24.

The gig follows her appearance at Creamfields Ireland last year.

Kelis releases her second album ‘Wanderland’, the follow-up to ‘Kaleidoscope’, on October 8 through Virgin.

As previously revealed on NME.COM, the album features Pharell Williams from her production team The

Neptunes and Fieldy, the bassist from Korn.

Speaking about the songs on the album, she told us: “It’s not something you hear on the radio and get…they don’t sound like anything else. I try to be

independent of everything else.”

The first single from it ‘Young, Fresh & New’ is out on September 17.
