Chris De Burgh embarks on epic tour with date at the Waterfront
In the 45th year since the release of his album ‘Spanish Train and Other Stories’, Chris de Burgh will be embarking on an epic tour with his band to promote his brand new album ‘The Legend of Robin Hood’.
He will be performing at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast on Sunday February 20, 2022 and tickets are on sale this Friday at 9am from www.waterfront.co.uk and www.ticketmaster.ie.
‘Spanish Train and Other Stories’ was released in 1975 and whilst not a huge commercial success, the album and tour expanded the fan base, with de Burgh starting to attract a cult following. Along with the epic title track, other fan favourite tracks from the album included ‘Patricia The Stripper’ and ‘A Spaceman Came Travelling’.
In 1981 de Burgh had his first UK chart entry with Best Moves, a collection culled from his early albums and he had an across-the-board success with the ballad ‘The Lady in Red’ in late 1986, the single became a number one hit in the UK and its accompanying album, Into the Light, reached number two in the UK. Flying Colours, his follow-up to Into the Light, entered the British charts at number one upon its 1988 release.
