BEYONCÉ ADDED ON SUNDAY, 10TH JULY!
Oxegen is proud to bring our fans one of the biggest superstars on the planet – Beyoncé. This is Irish fans first chance to see Beyoncé since her sold out run of shows at The O2 in 2009. Her stunning vocals and high-energy choreography make her a peerless live performer.
With over 75 million worldwide album sales as a solo artist alone, Beyoncé is now one of the best-selling artists of all time.
The blistering new single, “Run The World (Girls)”, is a stunning taster from Beyoncé’s much-anticipated fourth solo album. The album’s due out this summer and Oxegen fans will be amongst the first to hear her new material performed live.
Beyoncé’s most recent multi-platinum album, “I AM…SASHA FIERCE”, includes her scorching anthem ‘Single Ladies’ and the beautiful ‘If I Were A Boy’. The album won Beyoncé six Grammy Awards, the most for any female artist in a given year, bringing her total to 16.
International superstar Beyoncé has dominated the music charts this decade spending the most weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, more than any female artist. She has had more Top 40, Top 20, Top 10 and Top 5 hit records over the past 10 years and more cumulative time spent at #1. Her #1 singles includes ‘Crazy In Love’, widely acknowledged as the best song of the last decade. Forbes Magazine also voted Beyoncé No.1 in their list of the ‘Most Powerful and Influential Musicians in the World’.
Oxegen’s Festival Director John Probyn comments: “We’re always striving to bring the biggest and best music talent to Oxegen and they really don’t come any bigger than Beyoncé. She is a truly incredible artist and an amazing live performer. This year we’ve got most of the artists headlining the UK’s major festivals on one bill – it’s all about giving fans real value for money and delivering an unforgettable experience.”
