About Chris De Burgh: 50LO

Chris de Burgh celebrates a remarkable and rare career milestone during 2024; half a century as a recording artist.

Few artists can lay claim to international success spanning five decades but, beginning with his very first release, Chris de Burgh has achieved just that. The foundations for a remarkable and durable career were laid back in 1975 with the release of Chris’ debut album, ‘Far Beyond These Castle Walls’, featuring the single, ‘Flying’, which spent 17 weeks at No. 1 in Brazil.

Subsequent records, almost in turn, continued to steadily draw in audiences around the world; Scandinavia was early to embrace the vivid story-telling that is Chris' unique talent, South Africa quickly tuned in to his power as a live performer, north America even demanded its own specially compiled greatest hits collection, ‘Best Moves’. In the United States, meanwhile, relentless touring with his management stablemates Supertramp was beginning to establish Chris as a gritty, charismatic stage presence.
