Chris Rea returns to Belfast as part of a European tour to celebrate the September release of his new album, ‘Road Songs for Lovers.’
Born in Middlesbrough in 1951, Rea released his debut album in 1978 and promptly had a huge US hit with the first track to be lifted off the record, Fool If You Think It’s Over. In 1983, Rea's fifth studio album Water Sign sold over half a million copies after I Can Hear Your Heartbeat became a Top 20 hit
all over Europe. Rea’s follow up, Wired To The Moon was also a huge success and attendant tours of Europe would ensure that Rea commandeered a significant fan-base that has stayed with him through subsequent decades.
