Nearly 20 years have passed since The Corrs returned to the legendary Royal Albert Hall, and amid the anticipation of a brand new album coming in November titled Jupiter Calling, The Corrs brought their nineties and early noughties records all the way to the 21st century in spectacular fashion.
The famous Irish family returned from a musical hiatus last year with their first studio album in nearly a decade and decided the Royal Albert hall was the place to showcase their next while playing their collection of hits that the crowd had come to see live! kicking off the show the Corrs took a moment to reflect on their journey that they have taken since performing here last and what a difference in their lives they now were that last included Andrea wearing three earrings in one ear to look 'cool!'
Starting the show with a couple of classics including Radio, What Can I Do and Forgiven Not Forgotten while fusing them with their latest records that have been recorded alongside legendary producer, T Bone Burnett, Road To Eden, Bulletproof Love and Son of Solomon the crowd were encaptured and willing them on. Taking us into the interval, Lough Erin Shore was the first record that broke the shackles of the crowd and got them onto their feet with their arms flaying wilder than the recent hurricanes into the aisles!
Having recovered their breathe and composure the crowd welcomed back The Corrs, who in turn started off with some raw and stripped back records, including Andrea performing on piano, Summer Sunshine and the immigration record Ellis Island which were both well received. They also performed for the first time their next single to be released SOS with the audio below for you to enjoy.
Cue the encore, and the crowd forgetting all about it being a school night, were jumping, stomping, singing, clapping, some all at the same time were urging on The Corrs to come back, and when they did the decibel level rose and The Corrs took us home with So Young, I Never Loved You Anyway, Dreams, Breathless (quite fitting for some of the fans around me) and the instrumental record, Toss The Feathers which they had been urged to perform by some rowdy supporters earlier on in the evening.
It was a fitting finale and The Corrs definitely showed their whole repertoire of musical talents at the Royal Albert Hall for a second time and with another album out on the 10th November they don't look ready to hang up their violins and guitars yet, so hang onto your hats folks and get ready for more from this wonderful and talented Irish family!
