Dermot Kennedy is set to return to his hometown of Dublin, Ireland on Wednesday 20, November for an intimate performance as part of Live At Alofts Homecoming Tour.
Aloft Hotels, the brand in Marriott International’s portfolio loved by music lovers and known for its long-standing live music program, has partnered with Universial Music Group & Brands to create a special tour taking today’s most talked-about artists back to where their careers began.
Live At Aloft Hotels Homecoming Tour aims to give back to the fans that helped these music stars get where they are today by hosting unique performances in intimate settings within their hotels.
Kennedy is a 27-year-old singer-songwriter from Dublin who’s rising to the top. In October 2019 he released his debut album WITHOUT FEAR, which made it to number 1 on the Official UK and Irish Album Charts.
Marriott Bonvoy (Marriott’s reward program) are offering ways to get even closer to Kennedy:
- Members can bid Marriott Bonvoy points on a money-can’t-buy experience where guests can explore different flavors of whiskey on a tour of the Dublin Liberties Distillery with Dermot Kennedy, before his show. Marriott Bonvoy members who bid and win can take a guest to learn about the history and mythology of the Liberties area of Dublin as well as the whiskey distilling process with the singer-songwriter while listening to select tracks off his newly released album, Without Fear. Then, head to Aloft Dublin City to watch the performance and cap off the night with a stay in the recently opened hotel.
- All Marriott Bonvoy members will receive priority access to the event and an exclusive meet & greet with the artist after the show. (Offer is based on first-come, first-served basis up to maximum capacity of the venue, at Marriott’s sole discretion.)
- Marriott Bonvoy members with Gold, Platinum Titanium, or Ambassador Elite status will receive curated gift bags which include a limited-edition tour t-shirt from street artist INSA, wireless headphones courtesy of Marriott Bonvoy, nostalgia merch, and more.
- To recover from the night before, all Marriott Bonvoy members who book a stay directly on Marriott.com can request Morning After Re:fuel Kits via the chat function on the Marriott Bonvoy mobile app. Each kit includes hangover helping items from Aloft’s Re:fuel pantry.
Always looking to add innovative tech experiences to their hotels and live performances Aloft has collaborated with British ‘GIF-ITI’ street artist INSA to provide an interactive art experience that puts a new spin on the tendency for fans to film concerts on their phones.
INSA, who is regarded as “the next Banksy” due to his talent and anonymous persona, will be creating an augmented reality experience that evolves during the performers’ sets. INSA will be creating a dynamic stage design that will animate via his custom app, rewarding guests with the ultimate phone viewing and recording experience as they hold up their device to the stage. Exclusive merch featuring INSA’s artwork will be gifted to guests attending the event to take home as a memento.
There will also be photo opportunities in the nostalgic pop-up 90’s-themed bedroom and signature music-themed drinks in Aloft’s WXYZ bar (we’re talking cocktails served in retro boombox-shaped mugs).
