It’s been confirmed that one of the biggest names in US singer-songwriting, Steve Earle, is to play a solo gig at Derry’s Millennium Forum on Thursday, August 28, as part of a European tour.
Earle has written a range of classic songs from ‘Copperhead Road’ to ‘Galway Girl’ and is still producing the goods. His song ‘Invisible’ was nominated for a Grammy this year.
The Forum gig is one of just two dates in Ireland on the Steve Earle tour - the other is in the National Concert Hall in Dublin on Wednesday, August 27.
Concerts on the tour include ‘BBC at the Quay’ in Glasgow and a series of festival dates in England, Italy, Switzerland and Norway.
Texan Earle (59) proved a big hit with the Forum audience on his last visit in 2009. He remains one of the busiest performers in the music business.
