Ronan Keating, the charismatic multi-platinum Irish music superstar, will thrill his legions of Australian fans when he embarks on a national tour this summer, playing a very special set of concerts in intimate venues around the country.
Joining Ronan on tour will be fellow Irish artist, Sharon Corr, singer, songwriter and violinist, and a founding member of international superstars, The Corrs.
Stepping away from ‘The X Factor’ judges’ desk, Ronan, accompanied by his seven-piece band and a string quartet, will deliver stellar performances of songs from throughout his career.
The set list will include highlights from ‘When Ronan Met Burt’, ‘Duet’, ‘Stay’ and ‘Songs for My Mother’, plus hits like ‘When You Say Nothing At All’, ‘Life Is A Rollercoaster’, ‘Lovin’ Each Day’, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’, ‘The Long Goodbye’ and many more.
Ronan is currently enjoying well-deserved success with his latest album, ‘When Ronan Met Burt’ (Universal Music).
The top-three album, fast approaching platinum status, celebrates Ronan’s unique teaming with legendary composer Burt Bacharach.
The album houses ten reworked classics including ‘Walk On By’, ‘I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself’, ‘The Look Of Love’ and ‘Arthur’s Theme (The Best That You Can Do)’, which Ronan recently performed on the hit TV show ‘The X Factor’, on which Ronan has been appearing as a judge and mentor for a second season.
‘When Ronan Met Burt’ is Ronan’s eighth solo album to be released here.
Ronan has enjoyed consistent success in Australia with releases such as the 2010 double-platinum album ‘Duet’, 2009’s platinum ‘Songs For My Mother’, which spent four consecutive weeks in the #1 spot on the ARIA charts, and the festive ‘Stay’.
While Australian album sales near 1.5 million, worldwide sales have surpassed an incredible 22 million. Sharon Corr will be special guest on all shows.
Hugely successful as a member of The Corrs, Sharon is now finding success as a solo artist, with the release of her debut album ‘Dream Of You’ (Warner Music). Over the course of their 15-year career, The Corrs sold more than 40 millions albums worldwide, featuring massive singles such as ‘Runaway’, ‘Radio’, ‘Forgiven Not Forgotten’, ‘So Young’ and ‘Breathless’.
Don’t miss a special evening with Ronan Keating, and special guest Sharon Corr, live in concert.
