CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF ORIGINAL MUSIC
To celebrate their phenomenal forty years on the road, IMRO will host a special evening of live music and chat with iconic Irish band Bagatelle on Wednesday 30th January. On the night the band will be presented with an IMRO Award in recognition of their 40th anniversary.
Bagatelle began their musical career back in 1978 and since then have remained ever popular on the Irish music circuit. Over the course of their forty years, they’ve had several No.1 hit singles with iconic songs such as ‘Summer In Dublin’, ‘Second Violin’ and ‘Trump Card’.
With platinum and gold status album sales and classic emigration songs like ‘Streets Of New York’, ‘Flight of Earls’ and ‘Boston Rose’, Bagatelle have remained a firm favourite with Irish audiences across the globe.
Over the course of their forty years, the band have shared stages with legends and international icons such as Bob Marley, John Denver, The Pogues, Duran Duran, The Pretenders, Van Morrison, U2, UB40, George Michael and Jose Feliciano, to name just a few.
Just two years ago Bagatelle completed their “Final Year Tour” and retired (for all of about 3 months!). Bored not touring, the band then played a major series of “One For The Road” sold out gigs.
