Having clocked up a major milestone last year, some commentators may have assumed that his ‘Phil Coulter at Eighty’ National tour was a sort of lap of honour, a last hurrah for his followers. Wrong!
At over 30 shows across the country the fans had their say, with packed houses and standing ovations. It was definitely not time to say, Goodbye. They wanted more of that Coulter magic, the songs, the stories and the touch of Tranquillity.
After 55 years at the very top of his game Phil has achieved the status of legend in the music business. But his enthusiasm and energy have never waned.
He loves his audiences and has happily jumped straight back into planning another show and a new tour, with fresh collections of memories and melodies.
Audiences really responded to the different qualities that his Special Guests brought to the evening so he’s delighted to welcome back his glamorous and ever popular wife Geraldine Branagan and rising star and young turk George Hutton.
