Internationally acclaimed Irish rock band Bagatelle are set to perform as part of their 40 Years of Original Music Tour at Bansha GAA Centre in County Tipperary this Saturday (September 8).

The concert is a fundraiser for Bansha Tidy Towns, an excellent group of volunteers who do such a wonderful job in maintaining the village and keeping it looking clean and picturesque.

Don’t miss this unique chance to reminisce with this legendary band for this unmissable concert as they sing their iconic hits from the 80s to the present day such as 'Summer in Dublin’, ‘Second Violin’, ‘Trump Card’, ‘Love is the Reason’, ‘Leeson Street Lady’, ‘Streets of New York’, ‘All Fall Down’, ‘Philadelphia’, ‘Flight of Earls’ and ‘Raining in Paris Tonight’.

Bagatelle have been one of the most outstanding bands in the history of Irish popular music, garnering a huge and loyal fan base both nationally and internationally. They will no doubt receive a rousing County Tipperary welcome. Frontman Liam Reilly is considered one of Ireland’s greatest songwriters, who along with his superb piano playing was hugely influential in paving the way for younger rock bands.

U2’s Bono has acknowledged that Bagatelle were a major influence on him and his colleagues and helped pave the way for rock bands in the 70s by playing their own self-penned songs.

Tickets are €25 from O’Connell’s Shop Bansha, Cashel Post Office, Aherlow Tourist Office and 086-8314443. Full bar facilities will be available on the night. Show starts at 8:30pm.
