Chris de Burgh and band will be performing at the Waterfront Hall on 15 October 2019 featuring albums Into the Light, Moonfleet and other favourites.
Between them, Into The Light and Moonfleet & Others Stories encompass 36 tracks, which Chris will perform in concert with full band.
“As always, the aim is to connect – and also, now, to re-connect – with my audience and take it on a musical journey.” Chris de Burgh
“One is my most successful album in terms of sales, and the other is one I particularly enjoyed the writing and recording of, Chris explains.
The first is his 1986 release, Into The Light, which Chris had shrewdly envisaged could be the record that might place him fully centre-stage as an international artist – and so it proved, thanks to one song in particular: The Lady In Red. It was the composition which finally established him as a known singer-songwriter around the world and has since become an undeniable evergreen classic. To this day, it remains one of the most played songs on the planet; in America alone, it is among the Top 20 most played records in the United States in a period of 12 months.
The second album is Moonfleet & Other Stories, from 2010, which took Chris on the most ambitious, demanding and evocative journey of his long career which, by then, had resulted in albums sales approaching 50 million worldwide.
“I gave myself the biggest challenge in writing and recording that album,” Chris estimates. “It was very difficult but, ultimately, great, great fun to have done that.”
It’s entirely appropriate to call ‘Moonfleet & Others Stories’ a tour de force, not merely since it comprises 20 original elements (including the writing of an orchestral overture by Chris), but because it’s a fully-rounded and realised musical suite based on the book, by English novelist J. Meade Falkner, from which the album takes its name.
It's safe to say that this will be one of the biggest shows of the year; Chris De Burgh plays Waterfront Hall on 15 October 2019. Be sure not to miss it!
