Sinéad O'Connor supports Bob Geldof at the Citizens of Boomtown premiere

Sinéad O'Connor supported her longtime friend Bob Geldof at the world premiere of his film Citizens of Boomtown during the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival, held at the capital's Cineworld venue on Tuesday evening. 

The Irish singer, 53, appeared in great spirits as she took snaps with the activist, 68, just weeks after admitting she was 'seriously in danger of dying' during her mental health battle.

Bob's two-part documentary - which will air on RTÉ One from Thursday - follows the story of the musician and his rock band The Boomtown Rats, who boasted a successful career during their height of fame from 1975 until 1986, before reuniting in 2013.

Mandinka hitmaker Sinead will also appear in Citizens of Boomtown, in addition to contributions from fellow music legends Bono and Sting. 

The group - which compromises of lead singer Bob, lead guitar Garry Roberts, drummer Simon Crowe and bass player Pete Briquette - are set to release an accompanying album on March 13.

The release of their LP will be followed by a nationwide tour, which will kick off from March 26 until late October.

On their new project, songwriter Bob recently told Rolling Stone: 'We made this album for 2020. But I have doubt if anyone who loves Billie Eilish is going to want to come see us.
