Celebrity dinner date set to be a top Christmas gift choice

first_imgIf you are looking for a unique Christmas gift for the music fan in your life – the Shandon Hotel & Spa are hosting an unforgettable experience with singer Brian Kennedy in January 2018.The Shandon Hotel & Spa is excited to announce a glamorous dinner date with Brian Kennedy – back by popular demand!The event takes place on Thursday January 25th 2018, where guests enjoy Shandon G&T drinks reception and a sumptuous 4 course gourmet meal before Brian Kennedy takes to the stage to perform. Brian last performed in the Shandon on the 21st September 2017 to a sell out show and he ‘wowed’ the audience with his humour and amazing performance, he even joined guests on the dance floor to conclude a spectacular show!The Belfast man is first and foremost a live performer and songwriter. As he bluntly puts it himself, “Music is my lifeblood.” His constant touring from Ireland and the UK to Australia, Germany and the USA, including the major global festivals, has resulted in an ever-growing international fan base the old fashioned way, over a phenomenal twenty-five year career on the rollercoaster ride that is the unpredictable music industry. His work with Belfast legend Van Morrison has been well documented. Courtesy of Van’s continuing mentoring and generosity, Brian ended up sharing vocal duties on stages across the globe over a six-year period with Morrison and a breathtaking cast of some of the greatest artists in history: Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker to name but a few.Brian has released a stream of chart-making albums. ‘A Better Man’ (1996) and ‘Now That I Know What I Want’ (1999), both went platinum at No.1 and earned him the awards of Irish Best Male Artist and Irish Best Male Album, as did the highly acclaimed ‘Homebird’ (2006) and cover album ‘Interpretations’ (2008).But it was Brian’s heart wrenching LIVE performance of ‘You Raise Me Up’ at the funeral of football Legend George Best that earned him a spot in the top 5 of the UK charts.Last year saw Brian begin a challenging journey with cancer and he cites singing and performing as the motivation for staying positive. In Brian’s words: “The gigs make everything worthwhile, the fans’ support means the world to me, if anything the diagnosis and treatment has given me greater focus and determination to get through it all. Music is the ultimate healer and my voice has never let me down.” Seeing him perform live is all the proof that’s needed.Well over two decades later and Brian genuinely feels like he is only really getting into his stride. So, what else is left for a multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter, highly regarded radio and television presenter, an Honorary Doctor of Letters from The University of Ulster, a published author of two successful novels – not surprisingly, for a lyricist of his calibre.This show will be a unique chance for fans to listen to and interact with Brian in the luxury surroundings of the Shandon Hotel.For more information or to book, please contact the Shandon hotel 00353 (0) 749136137 or email [email protected] Tickets must be purchased in full.
