Chris de Burgh will perform two of his most outstanding recordings, back to back and in their entirety, on his Classic Albums Tour 2019.
"One is my most successful album in terms of sales, and the other is one I particularly enjoyed the writing and recording of"
Chris De BurghThe 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.
The second album is Moonfleet & Other Stories, 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.
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.
8% per ticket administrative fee applies for online & telephone orders, this includes all costs and postage is free. More information about booking fees.
