Few artists can lay claim to international success spanning three decades but Chris de Burgh has achieved precisely that, selling over 45 million albums worldwide. In 1975 he released his debut album, ‘Far Beyond These Castle Walls’, featuring a single, ‘Flying’, which spent 17 weeks at No. 1 in Brazil. He is probably best known for his 1986 love song 'The Lady in Red' which reached number one in several countries.
In September 2014, Chris de Burgh released his latest album 'The Hands of Man' and is currently promoting it on a tour across Europe. Chris plays the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Dublin on Wednesday 6th May 2015.
