A powerful BP Fallon ‘I Believe In Elvis Presley’ to a wildly responsive audience introduces Imelda May at Marlay Park in Dublin
“I believe in being in Dublin
The referendum was great, I have to say
I believe in rock’n’roll
I believe in Imelda May!”
Says BP Fallon: “I had the pleasure of introducing Imelda May on stage at Marlay Park in Dublin to 32,000 fans, doing a spoken-word ‘I Believe In Elvis Presley’ with a new last verse. She’s incredible and her band are fantastic, the audience were full-on rocking and the whole boogaloo was a gas”.

And simply because this is completely brilliant:
Jeff Beck & Imelda May & her band perform The Shangri-Las classic ‘Remember (Walking In the Sand)’
Jeff’s guitar-playing is truly amazing – and dig how he reacts to Imelda when she starts singing. Yes!
