Chris de Burgh arrives in Malta ahead of solo concert

De Burgh has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and will play to a sold-out Mediterranean Conference Centre this evening

Legendary singer and songwriter Chris de Burgh is in Malta for tonight's sold-out solo concert at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, in Valletta.

Chris De Burgh was greeted at the Malta International Airport yesterday afternoon by the promoters, CMC Promotions.

In his first comments upon his arrival, Chris De Burgh said he was excited to be again in Malta for his first concert and is looking forward to deliver his very best as a heart felt appreciation to his loyal followers who will pack the Mediterranean Conference Centre. 

Chris De Burgh said he loves to visit Malta as it rekindles long time memories which go back to 1951. His father, Colonel Charles Davison, was a British diplomat, and was assigned to Malta on diplomatic duties. Colonel Davison's family resided in Rabat, Malta.

De Burgh's international standing can be judged by the sales of over 50 million albums worldwide. His most successful song, “The Lady in Red” is still one of the most played songs all over the world. De Burgh's other successes include: ''High on Emotion'', ''Borderline'', “Missing you'', “Don’t Pay the Ferryman”, “Spanish Train”, and “A Spaceman Came Traveling”.

Following the Malta concert, De Burgh leaves for Turkey to perform in Istanbul.

In the meantime, CMC Promotions is actively working on its next concert, this time by the Italian popular singer and Neapolitan singer-songwriter, Gigi D'Alessio. 

D'Alessio's concert in Malta forms part of his 'Malaterra World Tour' and he will be performing live with his band, on Sunday 17 April at 7.30pm, at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, Valletta.
