Event Info

ANDREW STRONG, the Irish Singer and Actor finally returns to Australia for the first time since 2018 to perform THE COMMITMENTS iconic Soundtrack in Full.

Born into a musical family, Strong who was only 18 at the time, is best known for his portrayal of Deco Cuffe in the 1991 Global hit movie The Commitments. With a career spanning over three decades, Strong continues to captivate audiences, selling out shows wherever he goes, with his soulful performances and dynamic presence and breathing nostalgia into such world-wide hits from the Soundtrack such as ‘Mustang Sally’, ‘Take Me to A River’, ‘Chain of Fools’, ‘Try a Little Tenderness’ and More.

THE COMMITMENTS was a film which captured many a phenomenon, though none more resounding than the talents of ANDREW STRONG. It was a dive into the gritty underground scene of Northside Dublin in the 1980s, one highlighted by a time of social unrest.

A huge commercial success in its own right; THE COMMITMENTS soundtrack spent 51 weeks in the ARIA Top 40 peaking at #1. It has sold well over 12 million copies world-wide and collected a string of major awards including 4 BAFTAS’s and a Grammy nomination.

ANDREW STRONG’s upcoming tour will be an unforgettable night for fans of THE COMMITMENTS film and its soundtrack, which celebrated the soul influenced sounds of Dublin. Strong’s powerful vocals and charismatic stage presence made him a standout in the film, and now audiences can once again relive the magic of one of the greatest soundtracks of all time.
