Michael Bublé has said that he can’t wait to perform in Ireland again as he opened up about his “big deep love” for Irish people.

The Canadian crooner joined The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show on Today FM to chat about returning to Dublin’s 3Arena on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 May as part of his Higher Tour.

He gushed about his love for Irish people, explaining that they make “great audiences” every time he’s in town.

“I love them, they are my people. I really do, I have a big deep love,” he said.

“Amazing people; great audiences. It’s impossible not to be in love with those people. It’s just one of those places, where as an entertainer or a human being, you don’t have to be something you are not. The more natural and genuine I am, the more fun that I have”.

Michael said that he and his wife Luisana love coming to Ireland with their kids Noah, Vida, Elias, and baby Cielo.

However, their favourite time to be on the Emerald Isle is around the festive season – with the “romantic” feeling in the air being a big draw for the couple.

“My family and I love going (to Ireland). Just getting a walk down the street and going shopping. I love it at Christmas.

“It’s a very romantic place at Christmas, everything all lit up and all the shops and my music playing through every store.”

Michael and Luisana welcomed their fourth child last August and announced the news with identical Instagram posts holding their baby daughter’s foot.

“From love comes life, light and her… our baby Cielo Yoli Rose Buble.

“You finally arrived to our lives with your 3.8 kg!!! Thanks God for this infinite blessing, we love you!! Noah, Elias, Vida and your mom and dad,” they captioned the photo.

Michael took a two-year hiatus from music following his eldest son Noah’s diagnosis with cancer when he was three years old in November 2016.

After the youngster was given the all-clear in 2017, the musician wrote a song – Forever Now – about his children.

He previously admitted thinking he would not make another album after he and Ms Lopilato announced their son was ill.
