Live Review: Bulmer’s Secret Orchard Live Festival at Leopardstown Racecourse, Dublin 14,07,2022

The Third in the Blumer’s Secret Orchard shows took place on a beautiful summers evening after another days racing. This time it was Imelda May who entertained the crowds late into the evening at Leopardstown Racecourse located below the Dublin Mountains which was then followed by DJ
Arriving on stage at 8.40pm and playing a selection of songs from her fantastic catalogue, including all the hits and some classic covers thrown in to the delight of the huge crowd, if any had lost to much of their money on the ponies their troubles were soon washed away to the Rockabilly sounds of Imelda. Its not all Rockabilly these days as mention Imelda has a vast catalogues including Rock/Folk/Americana influence’s and lets not be forgetting her poetry.
Playing until 10pm we got an 18 song setlist, see below.
11 Past the Hour
Black Tears
Just One Kiss
Big Bad Handsome Man
Sixth Sense
The Longing
Different Kinds of Love
Don’t Let Me Stand on My Own
Never Look Back
Word Up
Johnny Got a Boom Boom
Should’ve Been You
Teenage Kicks (The Undertones)
I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)(Meatloaf)
Tainted Love (Gloria Jones)

I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That) was dedicated to Meatloaf with Imelda telling us he was one fantastic original argumentative loving loveable genius and sorely missed and of-course once the song started up the whole of Leopardstown erupted.
Too conclude if you haven’t yet seen Imelda, you should do so as her shows are just fantastic, not tonight it was all about the music tonight, but most other times there are also plenty of stories and anecdote’s to make you laugh and some that explain the meanings of the songs to Imelda and why she wrote them.
