During his deep-rooted career, Chris de Burgh has been awarded more than 200 gold and platinum sale awards. Most famous for his 1986 love song, ‘The Lady in Red’ reached number one in several countries. Selling over 45 million albums worldwide, Chris De Burgh now brings his newest album tour ‘A Better World’ to the Meridian Centre on Saturday, October 7th, 2017.

Musically, ‘A Better World’ is a familiar de Burgh mix of diverse styles, tempos and instrumentation. Ballads sit alongside anthems, solo performances with band or orchestral ensemble pieces. Straight-ahead rock and pop songs are infused with regional flavour, from Caribbean to Celtic. Guitar, bass, drums and keyboards are augmented by pipes, strings and brass. Throughout, Chris’s voice is by turns powerfully clear and passionately sensitive.

It all comes together to continue, progress and enhance the unique musical footprint which Chris has created for himself while composing a career-long repertoire of more than 280 songs.

Now and as always, optimism and positivity are primary motivations and focal points for Chris, whatever his subject matter; whether justice, equality, religion, progress, relationships, romance or world peace. These words from ‘Homeland’ speak volumes: “There is always hope in the human heart for better days ahead”.

His 26th studio album, ‘A Better World’ was available on September 23, a little over three months after the 30th anniversary of the release of Chris’s hugely successful album ‘Into The Light’.  It was the album that established him as a true, worldwide superstar.  The album sold in excess of 8 million copies and included the iconic single ‘The Lady In Red’, which reached No.1 in 47 countries and still regularly wins ASCAP awards for being one of the most played songs on the planet.

The campaign for ‘A Better World’ will commence with the release of opening single ‘Bethlehem’, a dynamic rock song reminiscent of the global hits ‘Don’t Pay The Ferryman’, and continue into 2017 and beyond. Don’t miss this incredible event!
