Big Country gigs in Belfast & Dublin

Friday, February 5th, 2016

Unfortunately, the Big Country gigs in Dublin & Belfast (I was due to open) have been pulled due to ill health with the promoter (and friend Charlie Campbell).

My Irish tour will remain and we’ll be working very hard towards finding replacement shows in both Cities.

Sorry for the last minute issues but I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing Charlie the best in his recovery.

Thanks
Colin

Bob also spoke about Colin’s time on the West Coast of the US and his music after the song played directly after Colin’s. He mentioned that ‘The Never Ending pageant’ was ‘…really very good…’!

High praise indeed.

This comes off the back of some recent BBC 6 Music radio play from Chris Hawkins!!
