Chris De Burgh At Killarney INEC.

We went over the to Killarney on Saturday to see the legend that is Chris De Burgh at the INEC.


Up in the gods looking at my wifes hero.  I like him myself especially when he sings his hits.  He's very articulate and incredibly talented like his amazing backing band.  The lead guitarist (Neil Taylor) made his guitar cry, laugh and sing.  He's one of the best guitarists I have ever seen, honest.  The keyboard player and the drummer and bassist were superb too.







Some pictures taken from the mobile phone.  Chris De Burgh is a superb show man and "Border Line" was so appropiate for the time we live in.  I stood up at the end of the song and gave him my own standing ovation.  He's playing Blighty this week.  If you get the chance go and see him.  It's great to see somebody who makes songs and stories come to life and still believe in Jesus on this Easter weekend.  Thanks Chris De Burgh you made our weekend.  "High On Emotion" was another cracker.  My next rock gig will be Kansas in July.  Have you seen a live band lately?

  1. My last 'live' celebrity band to go and see was the Beatles. And then there was a local French band a couple of years ago, who played Irish and French folk music, and who we later joined!

    1. I don't think there are many better bands the Beatles, Vera. Would loved to have seen John Lennon, especially. Hope you enjoy playing the folk music. Thanks!

  2. Oh what a great night out Dave, I almost feel like I was there. I have always liked Chris De Burgh but never seen him live. Wonderful to do something like a going to a concert on a holiday weekend. I have seen many live bands as you know from my blog and have many memories mostly from the 1970s and 80s.

    1. It was a great night out Rachel. I don't get to see many rock gigs these days. The Irish seem to like Trad and Country and Western ("Country and Irish") than good old Rock N Roll. Especially Progressive Heavy Rock, my favourite genre of Rock. You can't beat live music. Chris De Burgh and his band put in a full shift and good night was had by all.
