Extra Joburg date added to Chris De Burgh tour

Big Concerts has confirmed that due to exceptional demand a fifth date has been added for Chris De Burgh in Johannesburg on Sunday 10th April 2016 as part of his Hands of Man Tour.

Chris is certainly no stranger to our shores. Big Concerts’ CEO, Attie van Wyk commented, “This is the 6th time we have had the privilege to promote Chris de Burgh since 1993 and we are very pleased that after 23 years, the demand for tickets is overwhelming.”

While much has changed since his debut LP, certain things have retained their integrity, after album sales in excess of 50 million Chris de Burgh releases ‘The Hands of Man,’ his 20th studio album of original material. Recorded both at his home studio in Ireland and at Mark Knopfler’s British Grove facility in London, ‘The Hands of Man’ has once again been produced by Chris Porter and features contributions from the members of Chris’ touring band.

‘Spanish Train and Other Stories’ was Chris’ first major hit in SA and the first single ‘Just Another Poor Boy’ from this album was No.1 for many weeks. By the time he released ‘Man On The Line’ in 1981, Chris was a well-established global star and the single from this album ‘High On Emotion’ became a No.1 record right across the globe. 1986 saw the release of ‘Into The Light,’ Chris’ most successful record up to that point, which sold in excess of 10million copies worldwide. It also featured the single ‘Lady In Red’, which was no.1 in 50 countries and is still one of the most played songs on the planet.
