Chris De Burgh & Band – Hands of Man SA Tour Review
It was a jam packed Teatro for the opening show of Chris de Burgh & Band’s ‘Hands of Man’ SA Tour, and they definitely did not disappoint their fans with a very intimate and breath taking performance.
Their ‘new’ material was incredibly touching and hit home to all that man can do, whether making war or creating peace on earth, and should be a message to all mankind, to open our eyes and hearts to what is happening in the world today!
Chris De Burgh & Band may not be as young as they used to be when they first started entertaining us with their classic hits such as ‘Lady in Red’ and “Spanish Train” and just like a good red wine, they only improved with time, and can definitely give the younger generation artists a good run for their money.
The highlight of the evening for everyone was definitely when Chris de Burgh jumped off the stage and personally interacted with this fans and audience, even climbing over the chairs to get to everyone, instead of hiding behind bodyguards or security – but hugging and even receiving kisses from some of the ladies in red, which I’m sure made them feel like kids again. To top that, he invited everyone to join him in front of the stage to dance with him and announced one of his fans’ 25th wedding anniversary. What an amazing artist and person.
The Chris de Burgh and Band “Hands of Man” show was undoubtedly one of the best shows we have attended in a very long time, and will not easily forget.
We would like to thank Big Concerts, Dionne Domyan-Mudie from Publicity Workshop, Montecasino and everyone involved for a wonderful evening and for hosting us, and congratulate them on yet another job well done, and last but definitely not least, Chris de Burgh and Band for an incredible show and for entertaining us all these years, and we look forward to seeing you back in South Africa very soon!
