Welcome to www.chris-de-burgh.co.uk, a website dedicated to the music of Chris de Burgh.
There are also video clips of lots of songs, along with explanations from Chris on why he wrote certain tracks, taken from the magazine of the Chris de Burgh fan club "The Getaway Gazette", scans of which are available to read as well.
You'll find the archives of "Man On The Line" here, where Chris answered over 1,000 questions from his fans, and also the "Tribute CDs", where fans from all over the world came together between 2000 and 2007 to record their own interpretation of Chris de Burgh's music.
We hope you enjoy the site...
During these extraordinary, deeply worrying and difficult days and weeks ahead, many of us now have to stay at home, self isolate and do the opposite of what humans normally do in troubled times, which is to gather together and share our concerns, and I have the utmost respect for the Health workers who are doing so much to ensure our well being.
To keep spirits up, we are all thinking of ways to spend these days separated from others, so I would like to lighten the mood by suggesting that I will sing and post a different song every day this week, recorded on my iPhone, (so the sound and visual quality may not be great!), and select one each day from your requests... so please send me some ideas, thanks!
Chris de Burgh
