Bagatelle

It may not yet be ‘Summer In Belfast’, but the bright sounds of international music sensation, Liam Reilly and Bagatelle, will ring out at the Waterfront Hall’s Studio Theatre tomorrow and Sunday as the band celebrates 30 years of music success.

The Irish threesome — who have shared stages with such luminaries as Bob Marley, Don McClean and Jose Feliciano and who have had albums produced by Phil Coulter and the late Gus Dudgeon — can claim to have been an influence to many of the country’s famous acts, including U2, Thin Lizzy, The Cranberries and Van Morrison.

Although the band have been playing since the early 1970s and have achieved several platinum and gold releases along the way, it again entered the Irish music charts last year for the first time since 1992 with the release of the 30 year anniversary double album, simply called Bagatelle.

The trio have been referred to as the ‘Irish Eagles’ and are best-known for such memorable hits as Second Violin and Summer in Dublin, which first catapulted them to fame.

Bagatelle are also at Enniskillen’s Ardhowen Theatre tonight and Coleraine’s Riverside Theatre tomorrow week.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

You'll have to make an emotional appeal to your boss. Unless things change, you might have to find another job. You're a very tolerant person, but you can't handle toxic behaviour. A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
