ABOUT CHRIS

CHRIS DE BURGH

 

Chris 1st major hit in South Africa was ‘Spanish Train and

Other Stories’ and the 1st singleJust Another Poor Boy

from this album was No.1 for many weeks.

In 1981 when he releasedMan On The Line’, the well-

established global star and the single from this albumHigh

On Emotion’ became a No.1 record across the globe. In

1986, Chris releasedInto The Light,’ known as the most

successful record up to that point.

Selling in excess of 10 million copies worldwide.

It also featured the single ‘Lady In Red’, which was no.1 in 50 countries.

 

 

By 1990 Chris’ popularity provided a international artist to receive a personal invitation from then-

Chancellor Kohl to perform at the historic public celebrations.

Chris continually seeks new challenges for himself as a musician and in with his 1995 album,

Beautiful Dreams,’.

Realising a lifelong ambition to have his music recorded in a classical style with a full thirty-two piece orchestra.

 

A tune revolving aroundglobal and political issues‘, Chris de Burgh provides thought in the lyrical content

of his new albumA Better World’.

The lyrical content addresses many of the themes and topics which have always so richly and uniquely coloured

his musical agenda;

love, war and adventure, travel, discovery and homecoming,

the past, the presentand the future.

The songs are depicted through Stories, and offer an insight into the thinking and imagination of one of popular

music’s most evocative and accomplished songwriters.

The long and consistent career has so far resulted in sales of 50 million albums and

SOLD OUTperformances in concert halls worldwide.

Chris

The album, ‘A Better World’ is a familiar musical approach to the melting pot 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.

It all comes together to continue, progress and enhance the unique musical footprint.

A footprint created for himself, while composing more than 280 songs.

This tour also marks the 25th Anniversary since Chris De Burgh toured South Africa in celebration of the

lifting of the cultural boycott and to date he has sold over half a million tickets over his 8 tours to the country.
