Daniel O’Donnell announces his 2017 UK tour and a new album
Donegal singer’s company earned £2.46m last year
Tickets are on sale for Daniel O’Donnell’s 2017 UK tour, to promote his I Have a Dream album, writes Fiona O’Brien
The new album features 20 songs including ballads, country tracks and pop hits from the seventies. Although not out until 28 October, it can be pre-ordered as a CD or digital download. And fans can get a special early bird price of £4.99 if they buy it from iTunes.
Tickets for the 12-date tour, which ends with two nights at the London Palladium in May, went on sale last Saturday. It follows a hugely successful year for Daniel, whose rose even further following his appearance on BBC One’s Saturday night family show Strictly Come Dancing .
The exposure contributed to Donegal Daniel’s reported profits of €2.86 million (£2.46m) last year. The records, released by his firm DOD Promotions Ltd to Ireland’s Companies Office, show a decrease in profits of €45,782 (£39,397) coinciding with his decision to take a career break in February because ‘life is short’.
Most of his profits were earned by his touring company Brockwell Ltd. Daniel is currently working on the latest series of Daniel and Majella’s B&B Road Trip shown on UTV.
