Grace Jones and her band will perform for one night in Dublin this autumn.

The singer – who last appeared in Ireland when she headlined at the Electric Picnic last year – will play the Olympia Theatre on September 21st. The concert will be filmed to feature in the documentary Grace Jones – The Musical of My Life. The film is directed by Sophie Fiennes (Hoover Street Revival, The Pervert’s Guide to the Cinema, The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology) and co-produced by Katie Holly of Irish company Blinder Films (Love & Friendship, The Queen of Ireland).

Fiennes and Jones have been working on the documentary since 2005 and it is due for general release in 2017.

The show will also feature DJs from Dublin nightclub Mother.

Because the gig is being filmed, there are restrictions, including a complete ban on video recording, audio recording or photography. As the gig will be filmed fans could will feature in it, so in buying a ticket the audience is consenting to have their images used. For most the chance to appear in a Grace Jones film will be part of the attraction.

Tickets for the show go on sale on Friday August 5th at 9am, priced from €45. See tickemaster.ie
