Legendary music star to perform in Durban on November 17.

The legendary music star Chris de Burgh will give a performance in Durban on November 17, presented by East Coast Radio, at the Indoor Arena, ICC Durban.

Few artists can lay claim to international success spanning three decades, but beginning with his very first release, Chris de Burgh has achieved precisely that. From 1975 with the release of his debut album Far Beyond These Castle Walls, he has achieved the absolute pinnacle every artist dreams off, consistently garnering fans from all walks of life, right across the globe.

His second album Spanish Train and Other Stories was Chris’ first major hit in South Africa and the first single Just Another Poor Boy from this album was No. 1 for many weeks. Chris continually seeks new challenges for himself as a musician and in 1995 his whole album Beautiful Dreams realised a life-long ambition to have his music recorded in a classical style with a full 32-piece orchestra.

Tickets range from R225 to R375 from Computicket. (Shows in Johannesburg (November 14) and Cape Town (November 19).
