Bagatelle Announce Their 40th Anniversary Tour
Bagatelle to kick off their 40th Anniversary Tour on Saturday 3rd March 2018 in Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray!
They’ve inspired U2 and shared the stage with Bob Marley. After humble beginning in a small bar in Bray, veteran Irish rockers Bagatelle are preparing to celebrate 40 years on the road.
Over the years, the band has had various changes of members, but currently it has four main performers – Ken Doyle, Liam Reilly, Seanie Devitt and Kurt Schefter. The group is dominated by the superb piano playing and songwriting ability of front man Reilly, who penned many of their top selling singles Summer In Dublin, Second Violin, Leeson Street Lady and the multi-platinum Streets of New York, plus many, many more. Come and see what has kept Bagatelle at the fore front of the Irish music industry for the last 40 years.
Ken Doyle remembers John Woods, the chairman of Polygram Records, saying to him "there was four lovely young lads came in to my office from Dublin and they said to me if you give us a chance, we could be as big as Bagatelle". That was U2," laughs Ken.
Don't miss out on what is expected to be one fascinating 40 year anniversary tour for Bagatelle which exclusively kicks off in Bray, ironic as it is where it all first began.
