Frances Black and Kieran Goss Reunion - SOLD OUT

Frances Black and Kieran Goss Reunion - SOLD OUT

David Hull Promotions

Wed 22 Feb 2017 8PM 8PM Main Auditorium // €27.50

25 years after the smash success of duo Frances Black and Kieran Goss, and following the success of their Grand Opera House Belfast shows, Frances and Kieran have announced details for their Reunion Tour in 2017 and we are delighted to welcome them to Draiocht.
It’s been over 25 years since Frances and Kieran last toured together. In the intervening years both artists have enjoyed huge international success in their respective solo careers, but it was the inspired pairing of these unique talents as a duo in the early ’90s that first caught the imagination of the Irish public.

Now for the first time in Blanchardstown they reunite for this special show.

"It had been such a long time since we worked together that we were both nervous, but from the very first song of the first show we knew we were doing the right thing. The audience sang every song with us ... the whole evening felt like a meeting up of old friends .. both Frances and I loved every minute of it. We're delighted to be offered this opportunity to play more shows together. We may even turn our reunion into an annual event!" Kieran Goss
