Bagatelle, the band that inspired U2 bring their “40th Anniversary Tour” to the McNeill Theatre, Larne
They’ve inspired U2 and shared the stage with Bob Marley; now 40 years after their humble beginning in a small bar in the Co Wicklow town of Bray, veteran Irish rockers Bagatelle are on a 40th Anniversary tour. One of two existing original band members, bass guitarist Ken Doyle, has mixed emotions about 'his 40 years on the road '. While thoroughly enjoying playing live and the audiences "making the hairs stand on his head", he admits that he is "just getting too road weary". Bagatelle travelled far and wide, bringing their music to audiences in Europe, American, the Middle East and China, as well as in Ireland. Their hit Second Violin was such a success in Uruguay that it's still played there today.
Over the years, the band has had various changes of members, but, currently it has four main performers – Ken, pianist and lead vocalist Liam Reilly, drummer Seanie Devitt and lead guitarist Kurt Schefter.
Don’t miss this chance to see them live at the McNeill Theatre, Larne!
